Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. "Sorry You Missed It!!
     
  2. -----------------"------------------------ :D
     
  3. try here if you still want a free one (Its on the left not the big one on the right at $29 or what ever price they are charging.
     
  4. I tried ZoneAlarm a few years ago - it works, but the nagging is horrific if you don't go on and buy the full version. It wasn't worth the aggravation. Either buy it or something else, but don't bother with the trial version - it's annoying.
     
  5. msr

    msr LE

    Personally I would not bother.

    Windows XP SP2 and Vista both come with a firewall, and if you connect to the internet via a router, so does that.

    msr
     
  6. Also, I found Zonealarm to be very bloated so not suitable for a lower spec machine.

    I use Comodo on all of the machines in my home network and I find it very good.

  7. I think we've had this conversation before....................... I would not recommend ANYONE surf the net without a decent SW Firewall/Security Suite that's even with at Router and using NAT. More than enough security white papers on the issue to kill a cyber rain forest.
