I have read many great threads and appreciate the knowledge. I will be installing UnPlugnPray to help with security in my WinMe system due to some of the discussion I've read on MS's wonderfull little OSes. Word...of thanks!

I will be installing my DSL modem soon and I have some serious concerns about his "always on" technology. (not exactly sure what it is)So I have a question to put any mildly interested individual.

What is "always on" technology and what is the best firewall for DSL security?

...a little newbie help, please...

Always on is just what it says. You always have an active and open connection to the net as opposed to dialup which is on and off.

As far as a firewall, I highly suggest the free version of ZoneAlarm. You really don't need the Pro version. The free version will work just file. You can get it <a href=http://www.zonelabs.com/> here</a>.
