mix & match antivirus & firewalls

  0000jb0000 16:26 13 Jul 2004

I have McAfee 2004 antivirus installed on my pc. Can I use any firewall or does it have to be a McAfee product? And which firewall is easy to customize?

Any decent firewall can work fine... but McAffe may have better intergratio with the AV.

I find ZoneAlarm or Agnitum both excellent

Any firewall you want; I like Sygate Personal Free version.

Not necessarily 0000jb0000 however McAfee's firewall v.8.0 is very easy to configure,and has a fairly small need for system resources. Its main useability is that you can stop/allow individual programs from accessing the internet access at will.It will also monitor e-mail and stop e-mail automatically, and it will notify you when any progam attempts access the internet which you haven't given permission.
