    Hi
    I installed KERIO Personal Firewall (Free version) yesterday on my pc and I seem to have the following problem:

    Everytime I click on START, CONTROL PANEL I can't seem to accces the control panel for at least a minute. The Task bar also stops responding for a minute or so. But after that everything works fine. (No viruses or spyware found on system)


    I uninstalled Kerio and the problems goes away.
    Do you recommend another firewall or is there a solution to my problem.
    Thanks for the reply.

    My specs
    HP a1532N
    Pentium D (2*2.8)
    250HD
    2048RAM
    Nvidea 7600 GT OC

    I use kerio exclusively with no problem. Have you turned off Microsoft's firewall? Two firewalls can't coexist. That might be the problem. If not and you have continuing problems Zone alarm is a free alternative that is very good too.
