Dear all,

Which of these is better? until yesterday i was using the windows xp firewall, then i downloaded the sygate one for free. is it better than zone alarm or not?

Further to an earlier post click here is there anyway of finding out how much i have downloaded since getting an internet connection (including just viewing web pages etc)?

Thank you people.

yeah it seems fantastic. just wondering if it actually is a good firewall or whether i should buy one? the windows firewall never said anything to me (rarely poped up) but sygate asks me whether i should allow internet explorer connect to the internet! reassuring......

Thats great GANDALF. cheers for your input. i will leave sygate in then....

Any ideas on the second part of my thread anyone?

Thanks

right. yeah i know the ISP should have a record. I just wanna monitor it myself to see:

A) that the ISP is quoting the right amount (just being paranoid i guess), and

B) whether i need to have unlimited downloads or whether i could go for their capped service for £17.00/month instead of £24.99/month.

Thanks again Gandalf

thanks JayDay. i already have that. but it resets every time you switch off the computer. i suppose i should have had it from the beginning and set up a spreadsheet in excel to note the download size b4 i switch off the computer. might do that next month!

thanks
