    I've no problems whatsoever with ZoneAlarm all of the years that I've used it, both free and paid versions. :cool:

    I've installed it but haven't had the chance to really use it. I still suggest you give it a try though.

    In my opinion, Zonealarm Pro is probably the best, but it's not free. For free firewalls, I like Comodo 2.4 over Zonealarm free.

    I think I will. I've uninstalled Adaware 2007 (so much for my suggestion) and am thinking about uninstalling Windows Defender too.

    Just got the 400.00 dollar Sony Laptop Deal at Best Buy for a family member, and I put AntiVir on it.....pretty impressed for being a free program. I seem to prefer it over Avast (maybe), AVG let me get burnt about 6 years ago so I've been jaded on that one :D

    I had a family computer that AVG was 'guarding', and it got infected with a helluva virus that corrupted the registry. I had to delete 102 registry entries manually after removing the virus with another program....eventually clean installed...system was never the same.

    That's not a burn. That's a torch.

    AVG is much better these days, about as good as any among the very best IMO.

    In all the about, 3 years i've had AVG installed on both my XP and vista machines combined. AVG hasn't found a thing, even when others have. I think it's about time i un-install it.
