    which firewall to choose?

    Zone alarm is probably the most popular firewall these days,but whenever i run it..BAAAM..my computer reboots..and it keeps giving me problems until i remove the whole thing..i heard some other people also had problems with Zone Alarm..so,which firewall should I choose?(of course,i prefer a free one ).Oh,and my operating system is Windows 98.

    get Norton Personal Firewall. It has a very user-friendly interface. It does its job.

    Try a free firewall called Outpost. www.agnitum.com
    Or try Sygate www.sygate.com
    Or try Tiny firewall, if you don't like the other two.

    Norton blows and it's too expensive.

    P.S. Try searching the forums next time. This question has been asked so many times before I feel sick even answering it.

    peace

    That's a link to a roundup done on TechTV's the ScreenSavers. I think they liked McAfee the best. I think BlackICE recently had a vulnerability. Definitely give McAfee's firewall a look though, techTV liked it.

    And whatever tech TV says must be good!!! But did they even try anything other than the biggest companies, hmmm..nope. I wonder what they missed????

    Pfft. Just do what the idiotbox tells you to... While I quote a poet...."You got a bullet in your head... a f**king bullet in your head. They pack the nine, and fire it at primetime, sleeping death and every home is like Alcatraz and mothef**kers lost their minds.....etc. etc. etc.

    TechTV sucks donkey dongs.

    Do what you want. Why should I care...

    Sygate is a good free firewall.

    But I would point you to the recent pissing match between Pooh Sun Tzu and catch...

    Real security doesn't come with an installer.

    Kerio Personal Firewall. It's free for personal use and has the best feature set of any free firewall I've seen so far. Get it at http://kerio.com
