You are then saying don't buy your firewall bundled with your anti
virus. Logically that makes sense. It seems though that most AV vendors
sell a firewall with their deluxe packages maybe because they think you
need one and it gives them a little extra revenue.
I have dailup and no firewall on my desktop and so far so good. Haven't
had to rebuild the system yet and I have had it since March 2001. Came
close to getting it messed up when I had Norton but was saved by AVG
Free. Currently I have my email on a server where they keep the server
anti virus up to date. I have not seen a virus in email in months. I
still need desktop anti virus but it sure does cut down on the malware that
shows up on my desktop.
