Can anyone recommend a low resource firewall...

...for an old Pentium laptop running Win98 that wouldn't slow the machine down to a stand still. I'm considering Kerio Personal Firewall 2.1.5 so far.

I'm going for AVG as the AV unless anyone has any other suggestions.

Go for Kerio, definitely. I always put that on any Win98 PC. Free, potent, tweakable, easy to use.

I'm setting the laptop up for a mate. I'm a Zonealarm user myself, don't think I've ever tried Kerio but if you say it's easy to use that's fine.

Do you reckon it'll be OK with AVG?

Cheers wolfie3000, I will check Antivir out.

It works fine with both AVG and Antivir.

Thanks both. Will tick as resolved.
