free firewall for win 98

  Fred the flour grader 21:04 30 Aug 2006

Hi Guys,

Can anybody tell me a free firewall to download for win98se. I use Zonealarm on my machine but I can't find it on the Zonealarm website.

Many thanks in advance.....Fred.

When you say you cant find it on the zonealarm website im guessing you want to download it again if you have looked for it. If that is the case here is the link, although it does say for 2000 and XP...

Zone Alarm have stopped supporting 98SE.
There have been other threads on this.

Thanks Ade_1, I am wanting it for my mother in law who has signed up for talktalk but, can't access their security features from the supplied compact disc.
Am I right in saying that the 2000 and XP will work on win98? As I had seen the 2000 and XP download but was unsure it will work on 98se

I thought that was the case; NotSoNewuser, but it is still working on my 98se machine. That's why I wanted a new free one. If not I am thinking of pushing her to this nod32 item I have seen mentioned here. I know it's not free but, she will want the best.

Thanks, Diodorus Siculus, I will give that a go for her tomorrow and see how it goes.

Good luck - sygate is no longer being developed but it's been on my laptop for some time and is good.
