    Exclamation Firewall question again!

    I install Comodo 4 my sis laptop but i find it useless currently becoz everytime i turn the laptop on, it says it not working & it suggest i reinstall again, i did & it shows that message again! Many times!

    I sick of this, so i thinking about using Kerio Sunbelt firewall but u may remember in my last Thread, after the 30 day free trial period, it never automatically starts up & i have 2 start it manually.

    So i have 3 choices:
    Download a new version of Comodo Firewall,
    Download Kerio Sunbelt firewall or
    just use ZoneAlarm Firewall.


    So which one should i install for my sister, Comodo 4 better performance, Kerio 4 user friendliness or ZoneAlarm 4 the Average user yet still good protection?

    PS. She not that good with this kind of stuff so i thinking of easy 2 use but still better protection.

    Get Macafee internet security and personal firewall. There should be a package deal to get internet security, virus/adware protection, and firewall.

    What is your OS, Terrorist? As far as I am aware, Comodo doesn't support Vista yet, that could be your problem.

    Wink Actually...

    No its XP. By the way i can't afford 2 buy McAfee so i rather just stick 2 free software. So once again, what will it be Comodo, Norton or Kerio firewall, which is best firewall 4 my sister?

    Honestly I have tried them out and found them to be all crap. So better to cough up some cash for Macafee or get your sister to pay for it.

    Stick with Comodo, if you can get it working, or try online armor(http://www.tallemu.com/downloads.html), I have used it, and found it to be pretty good. Never pay for something that is sub-par. Granted, the anti-virus that comes with the McAfee works with the firewall to protect the computer, raising the score some, but once again, no real purpose to using that when there are better ones out there for free.

    ^When I installed online armor it seems that my anti spyware (spyware doctor) stopped working. It never got past the start up, and when I mouse over the tray icon it said that it was disconnected. (It was working fine before I installed online armor).

    Also I placed this here because it seemed to be connected...

    *edit*

    Nevermind, I just shut-downed the program (spyware doctor) restarted my pc and relaunched it. It works fine now.

    Online armor is tooo heavy on my pc. Takes almost forever to start up. I did however find a servicem.exe which is supposed to be a malware thingy that has been on my computer for 2 years, getting away from the scans.
    You should get a firewall (a hardware one). I have one built in my router so I guess I'm good.
