    undefinedundefinedHI,

    I'm getting DSL and have been reading the information on firewalls. Another forum said that Sygate is better with win98se than Zone Alarm is. Yet Zone Alarm seems better for a newbie like me. (Newbie to firewalls and security settings.)

    Just want to get it right!

    Thanks, taperino

    In my opinion, Sygate is better than ZA on any operating system. I never tested that though.

    Anyway, if Zone Alarm works for you, stick with it. A firewall isn't very secure if you can't configure it. If you're a newbie, maybe you would be better of with something simple and safe.

    I do beleive that you would be better off with Zone Alarm for the time being. After you get a little more expertise you might want to try one of the more hands on setting firewalls but for now ZA will give you good service and security.

    Hi,

    Thank you. I did get Zone Alarm. Wish I understood it a bit. Guess that will come with time and reading. For now, it's all a boggle. :)

    It should become clearer with use and time.
