thanks 4 the quick response. i will make a note of it but am giving pc tools firewall plus a try at the min. it seems ok so far. its 4 my daughters laptop so it needed 2 b very user friendly. as u know it has the novice user option which is ideal. thanks again. while i was lookin through the forum for any suggestions i tried the link 4 webroot antivirus spyware and firewall. it states on the forum that it is shareware but on the webroot site there r only paid versions. it may b me just not being able to find the shareware version. but i looked 4 a while...cheers!

Remember to have only one firewall installed at a time.
