I was wondering if anyone could make some recommendations regarding software based firewall programs.
My Norton subscription has expired and having spent a lot of time reading about and researching different security software products over the past year or two, I've become more and more weary of Norton's products. I had to learn the hard way at how inefficient and incomplete their Anti-Virus program is and as a result have the same concerns about their Firewall products ever since installing "ASquared" and having it catch trojans that NIS didn't.
Is there better out there and if so, what are some of the better ones? I've heard great things about Kapersky. I'm not a fan of Zone Alarm at all.
I'm on cable and running Windows XP Pro, SP2
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
