I’m incredibly slow about this; I know that. However, I’ve finally done it: I’ve downloaded Zone Alarm and Freedom. I’ve installed both. I ran Zone Alarm for several days; now I’m running Freedom. It’s frightening, seeing how many are out there peeping or perving the innocent/ignorant/careless person’s computer.
However, though I like the additional features available in the Freedom software, I don’t know enough yet to be able to tell which is doing a better job, and I certainly don’t know whether there’s another freeware program that does a better job. Therefore, I’m asking the computer geniuses here for opinions/recommendations.
ISTR that someone told me last year (in another venue) that it was possible to run more than one firewall at a time. Not being very adventurous, I’m not about to try that without also getting the considered judgement/experience of people who know more than I about this stuff.
For those who know less than I, downloads of the software mentioned above are available from the following sites:
