Hi folks, I've been running different software firewalls for the last couple of years and always end up finding how obnoxious they can be at times while surfing or trying to use other software (Pop up warnings, alerts, and the like). While these obviously serve their purpose, they kind of take some of the fun out of using the internet. The most unobtrusive firewall I've found is the one that came with my system, XP ICF. My question is this: when I install SP2, do you think that my system can be safely protected when the ICF is used in conjunction with other IDS software like Prevx Home, Process Guard, SSM, File Checker, Port Explorer, and the anti-trojan, anti-virus software I already have installed on my system? (I run McAfee and Avast monitors simultaneously.) I've used ZA Pro 4.5, Sygate 5.5, Outpost 2.1, LooknStop and Kerio (can't quite figure out those rulesets yet).
