  • Norton Firewall????

    We currently use Windows XP Home version, which has it's own firewall. But since we hooked up SBC/Yahoo DSL alot of people told us we needed a better firewall so my brother gave us Norton Personall Firewall 2003.

    We get alerts all the time for various resons. Most of it seems to be companies like Roadrunner, Alltell, Sprint, Etc. But lately I've also notice a lot of alerts that race back to Korea and China. What gives??? Are these people trying to hack our computer or are they more ads, which is what I think the roadrunner, etc are. Is it something we should be concerned about. I mean we get like 20 alerts a day. How many are getting through undetected???

    Or is this program a waste of money????? Well it was free so, I guess I didn't waste the money.;)
    Thanks for the help in advance!!

    Unless your running a company system, you've been in a chat or what not and made some enimies, or somthing to that nature, I doubt your being hacked seriously.

    It could be ads from sites you go too, or what not, Could be alot of things. I don't run a firewall at all myself, and get by fine, even when I had DSL, I never did, and had no problems from anyone.

    As I said, it depends. If you make fun of Warez in there chats or what not, or just make enimies with them, then ya might worry bout those warnings, however, if you don't know what the warnings are, its best to find someone who does, cause if you accidently block out a part of roadrunner, your connection might get interrupted (Happened to a friend on Cable do to Zone Alarm pro).

          Writing this I hope I won't get lashed out at for posting some experiences on this subject.

          First of all - if you don't smoke - never start it as it will only cause addiction and as they say it is NOT good for your health.

          Second - unfortunately I began to smoke and I did...

          by Mato Winyan
          The following is a quote from the book... Spirit & Reason: The Vine Deloria, Jr., Reader that I read on Amazon... It really disturbed me while also stressing the importance of what speaking out against such things is needed.

          What are some of your thoughts? Have any of you read this?...
