I think that applies to AV software only, as one conflicts with the other each thinks its seeing suspicious activity.MA said:yeah, but i heard that having more than 1 firewall is actually like having no firewall at all, something about they work against each other
i dont agree, norton internet security isnt a cpu and memory hog, if you have proof it is then let us see please mate :Cheers:NiKEUS said:norton internet security is a cpu and memory hog its more bloated than lisa riley on steroids!
xp sp2 firewall isnt bad for what it is, if you are behind a decent router with firewall you will be ok for a lot of problems, however there are a number of firewalls that will block every single port until you open it and stop outgoing access to them ports aswell.
btw symantec do make a rather lighter firewall attached with symantec client security, after downloading two reg fixes its leaner than an anorexic with the runs.
Windows firewall seems fine for me. Like all software firewalls it can be disabled if malware gets onto your PC (which usually needs some user interaction).thomson said:windows firewall is the worst firewall out there.
the hackers learned how to hack it before windows xp was even released, including sp2.
and another thing, people will say this firewall and that firewall are great, its when you have been hacked that you realise its not so great, thats why its important to use a good firewall to start with and avoid getting hacked.
