Hi, has anybody got any thoughts regarding preventon firewall if so i would like to know good & bad points etc.thanks in advance.

Not a bad product, but why pay when Kerio and ZonAlarm are better and cost nothing ?

Belatucadrus.thanks for your reply,what it is my son has bought it and he installed it without any probs,but when he went to turn off the windows firewall in the security centre the little red shield appeared saying that his pc was at risk any thoughts on that?.

Preventon must be one of those products that the "Security Centre" doesn't recognise; just turn off the alerts or disable the SC altogether.

I don't know of this firewall.

If the windows security center dosn't recognise it, it will assume that the security of the pc is at risk. This dosn't mean that you have no operational firewall, just that windows does not recognise (not in the database of firewalls, etc) it.

Hope this helps.

I agree with the assessment that it's simply one of the many that Security centre doesn't recognise, to deactivate the warning, open Security Centre and click on Firewall Recommendations, then select the tick box next to
"I have a Firewall solution that I'll monitor myself"

I have used Preventon for years and never had any trouble with it.

according to amazon,this program has being discontinued

Re my post above, this program uses CDilla. Do not disable CDilla or preventon will not work until you reinstall it.
