Re: Re: Re: PC Firewall Choices

I admit I know nothing about firewalls but with ZA I have had to shut it down sometimes to go onto the internet. I have no idea why. I just can't get on and when I shut it down I can.

Never had the problem with Kaspersky. I do know that configuring a firewall right takes some knowledge and I know I don't know how to do that and ZA did not come with instructions telling me that, but Kaspersky was intuitive. If just popped up and asked if you want to let a certain application get on the internet and you answer yes or no and then it remembers. I think someone who did not even know what a firewall is could use it on their computer without problems like a typical end user. That impresses me. With the proliferation of broadband I think the typical home user should have a software firewall if they have broadband. Naturally a friend of mine had Windows XP and Norton Firewall and his machine on broadband got hacked anyway. But that is consumer Norton and that is another story which would be off topic to this subject.

Yeah I didn't literally mean perfect, only that certain people seem to
argue that everyone's complaints about ZA aren't real because they
don't experience them.  What proof could I profer here?  Some flawed
benchmark?  A video?  Why would I bother you assume I'm lying anyways.

So because you think that one sentence is misleading (in retrospect
'perfect' was not a good word choice), everything else I said must be
untrue.  Sigh.

You are the one being dishonest and the one exaggerating here.  You
take something too literally, and call people liars.  Two machines,
one with NPF one with ZA.  When ZA is running on one, IE is slow, when
its off its slightly faster than the machine with NPF.  It's not a
lie, its reality.  You can fly here and come see for yourself, but you
can't touch anything.  I don't know where you've been.
