I had Outpost firewall but when I ran 'Shields Up' test it showed two ports open. I was able to stealth one but not the other (1025 I think). I uninstalled it and ran Zone Alarm free edition, this passed the test. Outpost is well respected on here, in fact, I initially got it because it was recommended on here. Try 'Shields Up' click here HTH TR
It is well-documented that some professionals regard 'Shields Up', ZoneAlarm and Steve 'barrow boy' Gibson as one step from barking. ZA is resource hungry and Steve Gibson's lurid sites are only there to engender paranoia.
Your chance of getting hacked on a home computer is less than nil so Outpost will do the job admirably. Use the free version as there is no need to pay for a firewall.
Didn't like zonealarm it stop msn messanger from working properly and kept crashing the pc making it run slowe whats the best option to set oupost to for allowing acces to the internet I have set it to allow most at the moment because the rules one stoped everything from working
