With anti-virus software, people usually have a virus panic and THEN buy the software to clean their system up. With firewalls, it is the other way around. Truly. You install the firewall because you figure it's a good idea, put it onto one of its default settings (such as 'high security'), and then come back to look at the log, and blanche. "People tried to send me WHAT?" "People have been sniffing around my portmap?" " The hell(!) Get out of my system, you hacker SCUM!" A firewall is no substitute for a virus checker (although hopefully it will make it more difficult for hackers to ... Read the complete review

So an opinion on Norton?s personal firewall, I bet they all start with this is simple and protects my computer etc, etc, bla,h blah, and I recommend them to any one. Well sorry to disappoint you all but I think Symmantec is one of the most underhand companies I have come across. You see we are all in a state of flux with the new operating system windows XP. Every company is trying very hard to support their software with drivers that are freely available on the web to update their products. Symmantec are making their customers buy a new product for twice the price and I think this is exploitative. Every one of us who surf the net should use a virus ... Read the complete review

I installed Norton Personal Firewall (NPF) on my computer after reading about how the bad guys are getting clever and found a way of shutting down popular firewalls such as ZoneAlarm (which I have installed on my PC), so therefore I decided it would be a good idea to have a back-up, just incase as my PC is connected to the Net quite a lot. The firewall works in a very similar way to Atguard (which was sold to Norton), it has all the same features as Atguard, but with a better user interface. As soon as a program tries to connect to the Internet, a warning will come up, and you have the option of allowing the programs to connect just this once, block it ... Read the complete review

I had heard that a firewall was essential but did not realize how essential until installed. My Pc may have been the target of hackers previously but I would not have known it, it does not matter if you are on the net all day or once in a blue moon. Norton Personal Firewall blocks all hackers by controlling all Internet connections to and from your PC and will warn you of attempted intrusions. Any attempts are detailed in the event log, any ‘Trojan Horses’ will be picked up and the firewall will stop the hackers from using it to access information on your hard drive. You can use firewall to say what applications can or cannot use your ... Read the complete review

Before I start, I know the firewall is not part of the Norton Utilities package but i wasnt sure where to put it as it doesnt have its own section on DooYoo. I already own Norton Systemworks and bought the firewall and installed it today. After a very quick installation it was up and running. For those people that do have Systemworks, it integrates itself with that and with the LiveUpdate function, bonus! Once running, i didnt realise how many times websites want to add cookies on to your system. You can set whether or not a particular website can do this which will obviously save on hard disk space especially if you dont have much space. ... Read the complete review
