Hi All,
Have been ZA for ages but have just bought and installed McAfee 2007 and the VirusScan conflicts with ZA. What firewall do you use instead of ZA?
Suggestions pls. Don't particuarly wnat to go online w/o a firewall. Thanks

Hi, I recommend Kerio Personal Firewall. First download is a 30day trial of full product, after that it reverts to the Free Version, which IMHO is better than ZA.

jetico is another highly regarded free firewall that you can download from this link.
you can always just use your windows firewall to go online to download it if ZA ic conflicting too much.

Thanks, perhaps I'll just stick with XP's firewall as it does not confl;ict with the McAfee suite. Thanks again.

XP's Firewall is not safe to keep as your only firewall - it only blocks traffic one-way. Other firewalls mentioned block traffic both ways (in and out of your pc). I don't know anybody at all who relies purely on their XP firewall.

Kerio installed in `simple` mode only blocks incoming too, choose Advanced during installation to get the full benefit.

the guys are right please don't rely on windows firewall as it is very vunerable.
jetico and kerio are great and easy to install.

Mcafee 2007 is it just virus scan or the whole package?

  rickf 09:45 05 May 2007

HI All. Just checked my McAfee Suite 2007. Its the whole package and its got its own firewall so I think I am OK. Hope I am right

ah thats why ZA was conflicting ,because you can't run 2 firewalls together....sorted.
