    This seems like interesting forum full of good information. I need firewall advice I was thinking of Computer Associates ezfirewall looks a lot like Zone alarms is it a resource hog? I did use Zone alarm year or so ago and really slowed my machine down so much I hade to remove it. I use CA anti virus and pest patrol and for the past year have had no viruses, Trojans or spy ware these 2 products seem to be very good. Was curious about the firewall.

    Thanks in advance

    i think the FW of CA is the same as ZAP but w/o the antispyware..ZASS uses the CA vet antivirus engine for their AV and CA uses the zone alarm firewall
