Since Symantec recently acquired Sygate, it won't be long before they ruin that product just like everything else they have gobbled up (Norton, Partition Magic, @guard, SecurityFocus, etc., etc., freakin etc.).
I thought I remember reading somewhere that they were discontinuing sygate personal firewall as well..
That sucks cause I prefer that over zone alarm... Im not really to fond of zone alarm... i've hosed a few computer's os's usng zone alarm... zone alarm is the only program i've ever used that completly ruined a computers ability to conect to a network... even after uninstalling it, removing the network card, reinstalling the network card, and resetting the tcp/ip stack in windows... I've had stuff hose the networking capability in windows before, but usually resetting the tcp/ip stack fixes that... I couldn't believe all that **** I did and it still wouldn't work.... the damn computer still couldn't connect to anything, couldn't even ping itself...but as soon as I reinstall windows... everything is A-OK..
I've had zone alarm do that to about 3-4 computers.. so I avoid that program like the plague... Some computers it works fine on, some computers it just ruins network connectivity permanantly upon installation...
