    after a driver conflict with jetico 1 (BSOD), i diceided to try pctools firewall

    now memory useage is with two processes: firewallgui.exe 6,000k peak 15,000k and fwservice.exe 13,000k peak 24,000k

    Doesn't seem excessive, although I cannot comment specifically on PC Tools.
    Using Sygate here (which many claim is reasonably light).

    Do you really mean 10-16Kb or should that read 10-16Mb. The former seems a little too light.:D
