Hum Biker I'm wondering why you have all those at one time it's a wonder that you haven't got conflicts galore.

Mate I reckon you should cut them down to just one suite and not even have to worry re a separate firewall.

So far no conflicts with any and the firewall is necessary because I do business (CAD) from home to work site, which they require.

You should see what the work place has installed; JHU/APL, it's wild

I just wonder if there's anyone out there that is realizing how ridiculous this all is, yet can't look away! (or pop in to the unarguably argument like me!)


and for what it's worth, my personal systems: infinity / Viruses: 0
(started w/DOS 6.02 & win 3.1)

It is a good idea to have some active protection running always, no exception unless you PC if offline. Have a look. So, you think you're safe?

I suppose that's not an ideal AV setup.

But I've always kind of believed that to get a virus on your PC you have to pretty much shoot your foot or put your foot in it.

By the way...this Sandboxie...is it good?
if you don't, that is a definite shot in the foot.

I used Weatherbug for a long time till something tried to come through but no more.

Ever heard of Gibson Research Corp, they have a good way of testing your system for leaks and such. Once in a while I'll pop over to just see how mine is doing.
