Ok, so when I had Zonealarm and tried to play some games online, rigth when I hit "multiplayer" the games would freeze and lock my whole puter up unless I disables Zone Alarm completely. One game, "Empire Earth" wouldn't even play single player with ZA running! So, the observation is... With SPF I have none of these problems, I can host online games even with Sygate functioning and have no problems whatsoever once I have given the app permission. Now, maybe this is partly becaseu ZA "overreacts" by listing so many hits that other firewalls don't, but I've found myself a bit paranoid. I haven't had any problems of any sort on my new machine, but still... Is Sygate this much more compatable with my games and online gaming or is SPF not watching something maybe it should I dunno... Anyone know?
