hello. I'm new to this group. Ive done a search for the topic at hand, but all topics failed to answers my concerns.
currently, as it stands, my computer lies vulnerable to attacks as i am using no firewall software, with the exception of windows XP firewall. i have read it doesn't offer much protection. i know of two "free" firewall applications, kerio, and zone alarm. i have tried kerio before, however, as i don't have the money to pay for it, and to be quite frank i don't agree with stealing, especially something like a firewall, it didn't really suit my needs. ( i share this connection with other computers.) i have read some bad things about zone-alarm, and that it does not protect very well at all.
i need a good, free firewall solution. buying a hardware firewall, or other pay software is not an option, as i have no spare cash.
if anyone could help, i would be appreciative. thanks.
