AVG Pro plus Firewall ????

  Noels 17:38 23 Sep 2003

For several years I had NAV and Norton Personal Firewall. For various reasons I changed to AVG Pro with which I am very satisfied but as added security do I also need a Firewall and if so does anyone know which is the best and also compatible with AVG. Sygate, BlackIce etc.

Any advice appreciated. Regards Noels

If you are on broadband then yes get a firewall. I use Sygate Personal (Free) Edition click here with AVG 6 Free Edition.

I like Kerio personnal firewall click here compact freeware download, not stuffed with useless features. yet highly configurable for a more advanced user.

Thanks for that I've read your comments about Sygate on this site in previous threads. I was just worried about them being compatible as I tried to use AdWare Pro and AVG Pro and there seemed to be some sort of clash which resolved itself when I got rid of AdWare.
Any other comments would be welcome. Noels

Same question as to compatibility. Do you use Kerio and AVG

Lots of people on this Forum recommend ZA but also have problems if they uninstall and then want to reinstall which is why I got rid of Norton.

I will give one of those recommended earlier in this thread a try.

Thanks for all your help and advice

Sorry about the delay, yes I've used AVG 6.0 and Kerio together without any problems. I'm currently using avast! and Kerio and that is problem free aswell.
