Firewall ?

Now that I am on Broadband, do people recommend I install a firewall on my machine ? If so can anyone recommend a particular version eg Norton ? Thanks !

i would not use norton though there are two below which i have heard good things about:

Zone Alarm from here
Or
Kerio here it does cost about £30 though this is for AVG as well

Yes you should have a firewall installed, as well as spyware scanners, trojan scanners and anti-virus scanners.

Note: Stay away from V5 of ZoneAlarm (recently released), it's full of problems. Try and get hold of V4.5 ZA free if you can.

Details of other firewall products and links to the other tools you need can be found in General: Essential Security software tutorial.

V4.5 Zone Alarm

Thanks for the advice - I am trying to source without much success the earlier Zone Alarm release of 4.5. I can only find v5 available. Any pointers ? Thanks

PM me with your email address and I'll send it to you, I downloaded it from ZoneLabs a few eeks ago. Note: it's 5Megs big so make sure the email account can handle that size of email.
