  1. I am thinking of installing Kerio firewall on my Home PC. However, I am a bit confused as to which version. I have both versions 4 and the older 2.1.5. Which would be better?

    Thanks,

    My System details are :-

    PC : Compaq Presario P4, 256 MB RAM

    Windows version : XP-SP2

    AV : AVG Free 7

    Other protection software installed : DiamondCS ProcessGuard Free 3.405. About to install Ewido Anti-spyware 4.0 background scanner too.

    Current firewall software : Apart from firewall in broadband modem provided by ISP, using windows firewall

    Internet connection : Broadband. Also, falling back on dial-up when broadband is down.

    Spam filter software installed : No

    You should always use the latest version of security software,unless
    there is a very good reason not to do so.Kerio 4.3.268

    Kerio is a bit more complicated than Zone Alarm,and will warn you about more things.
    You can go into the advanced settings and disable the ones you don`t want, with out any real loss of security.
