    Hi, I tried to post this earlier but it didn't make it to the forum. I don't know why. I'll try again.
    I use a pc w/XP Home, SP2. Have Verizon DSL through a Westell 327w box. And Prevx1.
    I can get info online about how to tighten up the FW in the Westell.
    But I need a firewall that doesn't leak or terminate too easily. If I have to learn how to write rules, I will.
    I'm now trying Comodo. It leaks. Badly.
    I also am using NOD32, which just is not user friendly.
    So I'm looking for a strong AV that's not a hog on resources.
    I'm disabled and need to protect what I've got.
    Hope somebody can help.

    isnt this your other thread:

    Of FW's, AV, leak tests, terminations etc.,


    for a different firewall, u can try the new Outpost v4. it includes preset rules for many (but not all) programs so u dont have to write them. its also beefed up in the anti-leak department.

    as for nod32, have u gone through Blackspear's tutorial? it will guide u through installation and configuration of nod32 for maximum protection and minimum intervention.

    and if u must try another antivirus, id suggest either KAV 6 or Antivir.

    Several replies to the other thread (linked by WSFuser) so I'll lock this one down.
