    Hi Folks...One of the many friends whom I help keep their systems going is running Win 98. the latest release of Zone Alarm is not compatible. I also have an old Dell desktop running Win98SE. I don't use it much any more, but I like to keep it current.

    The only alternate (free) firewall I've been able to find is Kerio. I have zero experience with Kerio and would like to hear some opinions about it. Any and all thoughts greatly appreciated. Also any other alternative firewall suggestions would be helpful.

    Hi have no experience with Kerio but have a 98se sitting beside me using Jetico and can recommend it.

    There is a free version avilable.

    Kerio personal firewall was purchased by Sunbelt Software and it is now Sunbelt Personal Firewall. Available for $9.95 here.
    I've used it for a couple of years with no problems. Actually, I think it is on SALE now.

    if you don't want to spend the $9.95 (a good deal) the free version of kerio (sunbelt) should handle all your firewall needs.

    oops.... in the link from jdl, in requirements for spf... it says it does not run on 98
    you'll have to use an older version like the one here
