    Just a quick question... Took a look at this program and it looks very nice, espessialy since it doesn't ship the lousy Security Center with it... It uses around 12/15mb ram on my system, and it's very clear to use... From what I saw now it's very good to use for beginners but advanced people may like it too...

    But (here comes the question :p) did any of you here use it already, and how good is ito_O Pls tell me all about it ;)

    Hi,

    "The lousy Security Center" works very well on my family's PC, especially the Privacy Service with parental control...
    Lousy...perhaps, but very complete and efficient.

    As regards to McAffe Firewall Plus, i found it very easy to use but i don't like the applications configuaration.
    And this firewall is expensive (about 56 Euros) if it's not integrated in the Security Suite.
    But i'm agree that it's a good firewall for inexperienced users.
    As usual, try and make your own opinion.

    Regards

    Must say that I am not a fan of the McAfee security center either. You should not have to look at all that advertising with paid software. Other than that, McAfee puts out a good AV.

    Have not used a McAfee product in ages, but I'll take your word for it and yes you are right you should not have to look at ADS on pay stuff! :mad:

    After some more testing i missed the "advanced controls" but it's peformance was good, all ports stealth and quite nice IDS...

    I now trial McAfee's Desktop Firewall, wich is just great till now, one of the best I ever used, many advanced options, anti-hook control, clear interface... Well I use it a little longer, and will make a review on request ;)

    stylewarz, have you tried firewall leak test for this product yet? I tried last night it only passed 1 test out of 5 tests. I don't have time to try the rest of the test. Maybe you can show me the results of the test. Thank you.
