    Just a point that may interest some users.

    For a long time I have used ZA Free FW, until for some reason it started to give trouble logging events.
    My loading from start-up and general responses have been poor, but I have put up with them. I often got the reply that I have too many add-ons and auxiliary programs and that is why my loading is poor. I understand the theory, but never believed it was causing my slow responses.

    Queries to the ZA Forum were a waste of time, it was always my fault or my crappy old PC that did not suit their beloved FW.

    I finally dumped ZA and installed PrivateFirewall. Amazingly, the loading from start is now infinitely better and subsequent responses no problem. The situation is so consistent that it cannot be imagination.

    My conclusion ? ZA must impose a much heavier demand on PC resources than PrivateFirewall does.
    The difference in performance is so staggering that it is hard to believe, but I am now thoroughly pleased.

    Has anybody any comments on the apparent vast improvement made by this change in FW ?
