I purchased and installed Pro 5 and just unistalled it, as it really slowed down my computer in opening programs. I also found it hard to manoeuver around in. I have adaware se, spybot, spyware blaster, a2, win patrol, spysweeper installed and a good AV program. All of which i keep uptodate and do regular scans. I found the Pro version causing such slowness but i do need a good firewall and read a lot about this one and it sounded good. But :o for me it has been a disaster I have a pentium 4, mobile processor, xp, 1.9 ghz and 512 ram. Has anyone used the Free Version, does it slow down the computer and if i decide to try it will it leave remnants behind in the registry that could cause me problems if i decide to try another firewall. Or can any member suggest another firewall that is User friendly for a Novice. I would appreciate comments and opinions. Thankyou.

I find Sygate Personnal firewall to be a good choice. http://smb.sygate.co...pf_standard.htm

It still has application control like Zone Alarm but you can also make rules as well.

As long as you use the Zone Alarm uninstaller, there should be no problems. There used to be problems uninstalling ZA, but that was a few years ago.

I use the free version... but I couldnt tell ya if it would slow down your computer. My specs are: fx-53 on an asus sk8v 2gb ecc ram raid 0 hdd setup As you can see (i hope) Nothing slows down my computer :rofl: I dont see the harm of just trying out the free version. Good luck, wng
