    Arrow Security Software

    Hello Tripstone,

    If your looking for a FREE personal firewall you can check out the following:

    Agnitum Outpost - Negative just posted a thread on Outpost...he was very pleased with it protection.
    http://www.tauscan.com

    Tiny Software - Tiny Personal Firewall - Another great free firewall...Terr seems to prefer Tiny over ZA and I have used Tiny and definitely think it's worth downloading.

    ZoneLabs - Zone Alarm - This is personally my favorite (I haven't tried Outpost though, so it could change ) I've never had a problem while using Zonealarm so I've stayed with it.

    Sygate - Sygate Personal Firewall - Never tried this firewall, but I'm sure it offers ample protection, maybe you should download it and give us a review

    Hope This Helps In Your Search for a FREE Firewall!

    PGP

    PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) is an all around encryption tool..it can be used to encrypt any kind of file...

    Yes...in a way PGP is an "email encryptor", the PGP software I have supports various plugins for popular email clients (such as Outlook) that will encrypt your sent mail.

    I hope this has helped to answer your question!
