Hi to all, I have had my machine for 6 yrs. and used NPF since day one. (except for a short period of time) I am a NEWBIE when it comes to computer security. My boy wants to go on line for the first time. He has no anti-virus (i use NSW also) or firewall. He is also strapped for money. (Hes too proud to take money from his old man.) Is there a personal firewall that is free, that i could recommend to him. The only one ive had any experience with is ZA, the free version. I used it for a short period of time myself, but im sure there are others just as good or maybe better. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This is my first forum and first post. Thanks in advance!!
