    I just turned off my McAfee firewall that was free with Comcast, and downloaded the free GhostWall. How do I go about updating it, or does it automatically update? I couldn't find any info on this.o_O

    I know McAfee takes a lot of usage, but will GhostWall keep my computer as safe as McAfee has?

    The latest version of Ghostwall is 1.150 and theres no updates for it. Its just a packet filter.

    Ghostwall can stealth your computer but has no application filtering (outbound protection).

    Would it be smarter for me to keep the McAfee then and remove GhostWall?

    Depends on what you want.

    And theres other firewalls you can try, if you dont want McAfee.
