Archived from groups: comp.security.firewalls (More info?)
Hello, I am a newbie here. Can anyone assist or tell me where I can find a
general internet security newsgroup or source of information?
I was just about to replace Norton with PC-cillin when I found out it is
apparently not Firefox compatible.
Any ideas on other security suites that work well with Firefox - or not?
Zone Alarm seems to get a good press except for wireless.
I am a home user with:
a broadband connection
XP with SP2
Microsoft (ex Giant) AntiSpyware, Ad Aware & Spybot
I use Firefox except for pages that won't work with it
I use Outlook Express because it can automatically fetch my Hotmail mail.
I have a Belkin F5D7630 ADSL modem/wireless router wired to my desktop and
wireless to a laptop that has an old Belkin card that only supports WEP.
Don't chat, use messaging or play games.
Occasionally do a bit of file sharing.
Not worried about parental controls.
I don't really want to mess about with components from different companies
Automatic updates or reminders would be good
Don't mind paying a bit but would rather not have to pay for separate
licences for the desktop and laptop.
Any ideas gratefully received
