My fav. firewalls are Zone Alarm, even if sometime is annoying and Outpost, this is the better.

The windows firewall! Laughing

The hells no!

Favorite? Well I do like Zone Alarm Security Suite since it pretty much locks everything by default! And since I'm a paranoid freek, it's a great tool! Tho' I don't think I can call it "my favorite"! Tbbbbbth!

But if you're looking for free, legit firewall, I say you use Comodo!

lol @ zone alarm... It's such crap.

I don't even know why people bother with firewalls... I still think that (for the most part) they're way overrated.

@first linky(can't be bothered to read the second) haha: Go warezed hacked registration! Tbbbbbth!*

Anyway, like I always say, if you know your way around computers, you don't need a firewall!(wait, when did I start to "always say" that? Sarcastic )

*not that I'm using something like that... I'm not even using ZASS atm! Tbbbbbth!

Trend Micro Internet Security does a fine job at pissing you off if you set the security high enough to have to click 50 prompts EVERY time you want to play a game online Wink

i turn off most of the prompts and manually work the firewall ;P

You're behind on OLD tech, Abyss.

History of the internet wrote:
"Firewalls are barriers between 'us' and 'them' for arbitrary values of 'them.'" The first network firewalls appeared in the late 1980s and were routers used to separate a network into smaller LANs .......

You're some 20 years behind it seems.

Some ol'history , read it, and learn.

Just wait t'll you're on Vista, if you're ever on a guest account somewhere with that fuc**ng 'Vista defender' enabled, you can't fart or it pops up. This defender is pure hell.

I love how Microsoft always finds ways to punish the innocent. I'm sure people are already crafting ways to create viruses to do an automated "allow" click for their worms. lol.

Isn't that what they use with genetically modified corn to reduce the amount of non-popped ones in the bag?
