i have recently got a new Vista laptop with the dreaded Norton installed, it doesnt affect the system as much as it did on XP, but i still hate Norton. i found out from another thread that Avast has become Vista compatable & im happy now, but Zone alarm is not yet. i looked at comodo but the website doesnt say if its Vista compatable. Anyone know of any GOOD firewall's that are Compatable? then i can remove Norton at last.
Totally-braindead. do you mean Windows Defender or the actual Windows Firewall in the security section? either way i didnt know how reliable they are, i used to use zone alarm & couldnt fault it so i guess i have similar expectations. & so far not convinced yet?
I did mean the windows firewall, defender is something completely different. As far as I know theres nothing wrong with it. Unless someone else knows better. Mind you some say a Firewall is not essential anyway. I use one because its free.
thanks for that, i used zone alarm cause it was free & very good at stopping intrusions. i also had AVG Antispyware that was very good but again its not Vista compatable. so i might try spybot search & destroy.
