RE: What firewall program are you using?

I dont now how you zone alarm users can stand that program. I used to use that and it drove me nuts. I gave up using all Anti virus on the PC and just use the windows firewall and that seems to work fine. I never really got why people are so paranoid about using firewalls and anti virus. I found when using no anti virus yes i would end up with having a few on the computer but the seemed not to do anything vs having a program try and repair/remove them ended up messing up files. Basically my anti virus was to install windows XP at least once a year doing a clean wipe. But i will say the only things i use on XP was adaware and of course windows firewall which is quite good and none intrusive like others i have used.

Kapersky has been around for a while. Currently, I'm
using Zone Alarm, Norton, Netscape popup blocker, Spybot
and my router's firewall.
I'm running on Kaspersky 6.0, just came out a month or two ago I believe...but w/e Im on a router and Im using firefox so I'm safe anyways. All you need to remeber is to not open an .exe file

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
