    Hi, I have been told about this firewall www.sygate.com/firewall
    I was told it was good for the likes of me, as it was easy to use.
    I really dont like Zone Alarm and before you all start shouting at me... we all like different things... so be kind :-)
    What do you think...????

    Yes, it is a good one.
    I recommend it to people who don't want to pay for one. It is simple to use and comes without some of the grief Zone alarm has. :D

    I'm interested to hear what grief you find with Zonealarm. I have use ZA for ages and have had very little prob with it, but am well aware that one person's experience is not the sum of all truth!

    I was told it was easier to use for a beginner, where as ZA I dont know what its asking me sometimes and not being a IT person I get sick of it poping up all the time..... :-((

    So what I have done is 'created a system restore' and called it sygate, then disable ZA, then download... does that sound ok to you guy's...

    Missy,

    Personally, I don't use ZA because the last time I did use it caused conflicts with some software I was using and i thought it was a pain the way it kept interefering with literally everything.
    If i were you I would un-install it before installing Sygate for a hassle free install. Sit back and let it "do it's thing". :D

    i agree with boyce missy, the main thing to do is make sure all of za is gone. my brother had some serious conflict with za and norton kicking off.

    I used to swear by ZA, but have recently been using XP firewall, withou probs. Might take a look at Sygate, actually.

    It would appear that a lot of people are now using their router as a in/out firewall and just using XP's in. The whole security package does take up resources. If you can just have Anti-virus running on the system and let something else i.e a router take care of the firewall all the better. :D
