I am using win98 and when updating Zonealarm the download says it is not suitable for win 98 and refuses to load. When perusing their site it seems zonealarm is no longer any good for us older type OS users.
Should I change my Firewall? And which is the next best freebie?
Some alternatives here click here - Kerio is 2k/XP only too, but the others will work as far as I know. Failing that just stick with your current ZA, the chances of someone taking advantage of `holes` in your current version of ZA to personally hack you are so remote it's not worth considering.
Windows 98 is less secure overall than 2000 or XP, you're patching holes in a leaking bucket. Sygate will do the job as johnnyrocker says, but your OS is way out of date, why worry about the latest version of ZA leaving you insecure?
