I heard outpost is good but i havent really used it so cant say how good it is. I once installed it and it messed my system up and i also found it confusing so i uninstalled it. I have tried zone alarm and tiny personal firewall, but i find sygate better, it has more configuration options. Sygate does everything else all the others do plus more e.g. it warns of major security intrusions by flashing its lights in the system tray, it even allows you to see where the intrusion is coming from and trace back, it happend to me, i traced them back to some "unknown" hosting company not far from where i live, never heard of them but it could be someone was doing a covert survielence for all i know. Sysgate has also has DoD security, stealth security, .dll blocking and many other advanced faetures.
Does boubling up really meake that much of a difference? About the Jap program can u give me a link to it or something like that cuz i searched google what the keyword "jap" and all i got are theres japnese sites.
Depends how scared/paranoid you are. With me it used to be when i heard the police car, i thought thats it, when i heard a helicopter hovering above me for more than 10 mins, thats it, until one day someone told me, you wont know the police are coming they will suddenly turn up at your door, someone also told me police turned up at their door at 5am in the moring unexpectedly (raided there house), took away their PC. So after that i ran Evidence Eliminator and DoD Active@kill disk - virtually, i pressed the red button for PC melt-down
heres Jap: Jap
Does having a unknown ip adress makes u even more safe
you can NEVER be 100% safe, EVER. Even if you are 99.9% safe, i would always watch my back.
All those movies out on TV like CSI and others, they are showing IN the movie, how advanced technology and the FED's are.
