Will Windows firewall protect us?

Post by NitEcraWler on Tue Dec 25, 2007 5:05 am

Most of the time when it comes to computer issues, we tend to 'follow the masses' so to speak! How many times have you heard the call 'Vista is crap' or 'Microsoft suck' usually because of the users inability to make it work for them. Suddenly, there are thousands who jump on the bandwagon and all cheer together without even bothering to check the facts. Shocking Whoa

I have heard many rumours regarding Windows XP built in firewall, some good, some bad. Here is an opportunity to examine the facts as they stare you in the face and i must admit, although not good, its far better than i thought.

Interesting NitEcraWler.....thanks!

I too have seen this article Doc, Mac is not bulletproof.....If anything claims to be, it will only be for a short time till someone develops a hack, and then that must be patched!

Mac survives most hacks only because there aint enough of them around. Ask the users and they will tell you its because the OS is better LMBO or ROFL

Here are the market share stats for Operating Systems : Windows- 92.42% / Mac- 6.80% / Linux- 0.57%

Ask yourself this....Who are the hackers going to target mostly?

On my opinion, it is not good to remain with windows firewall since it is not much efficient..it is better to use any professional or commercial firewall..or any firewall build with the antivirus pakages
