Okay, Sygate bought out, decided to see what else was any good after many good Sygate years.... tried me lifetime license of OutPost Pro, not happy with it, machine felt slower etc..... tried a few other firewalls, eventually found Kerio 4.20 which I've been running about 1 week now and liking a lot - only to discover today that they plan on discontinuing it!!! More searching and trialling... I'm behind a wireless NAT router so as long as I've got good outgoing application protection I feel pretty safe and happy. Kaspersky Anti-Hacker - been using the Anti-Virus for many years so figured it's up to version 1.8 now so I'd give it a chance. Hey all, am I missing something really obvious here but why do I not see more postings about this firewall, painless installation, was so easy to use that I actually READ the helpfile to make sure I wasn't missing something obvious! VERY light on resources, 500k to 7mb seems around average memory usage, nice clean interface... so far this is the best I've seen for a while, quite similar to Outpost with the rules creation etc.... Call me an idiot but why isn't this talked about more, I know the earlier versions probably had many issues but hey it's a pretty new product compared to others and at least Kaspersky haven't been taken over or started discontinuing their products yet!!!
