    I've never used version 2.7, but for a couple years now i've used version 4xx, now using the last version of 4x, and it doesn't seem to give me any trouble at all with all plug-ins enabled, on a 2.1 gig processor with 2 gigs of ram. It's a mature product at this point and i'd think you'll be pleased with the upgrade :thumb:

    Later versions of Outpost Pro are to be considered as memory hoggy and causes relatively high CPU-load compared to other software firewalls.

    from the agnitum site:

    System Requirements
    Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, Server 2003
    Pentium 450 or faster
    50MB HardDisk space
    Memory: 128 MB (for Windows 2000/XP/ Server 2003)

    Important Notes

    We strongly recommend that you uninstall all other firewall applications before installing Outpost Firewall. Running Outpost with other firewall products can result in system instability (i.e., crashes) and can cause Outpost to operate in an unsecure mode.

    you already asked this same question at the Outpost forum, and it was answered adequately. You should not post the same question across multiple forums.

    But fwiw, I have always considered ver 2.7 to be "The dog's bollocks" for an older, light firewall. It is one of Agnitum's finest releases, imo. However, ver 4.0 is also excellent, but it will run a bit "heavier" than 2.7, even with only the plug-ins you mention enabled.

    2.7 was rock solid on my system. I tried to install 4.0 and had nothing but blue screens etc. Later I tried to install the 2008 version. It installed, but lockups and hangs were frequent. Plus the new design didn't appeal to me as much as the older ones. I ended up dumping Outpost for Online Armor. I've ended up liking OA better than the old Outpost versions.

    The built-in preset rules give you most of the rules you'll need. 2.7 also allows you to edit the preset.lst to create your own or modify what you want.
