    Have just today got signed up with a new ISP here in London, but my Sygate Firewall seems to be blocking access to the net.

    Have used it without any probs for 4 years, and normally it is merely a question of it asking you whether any new applications should / should not be granted access to the web.

    I have only been able to type this, by deleting the Sygate folder from my c drive, since the icon for it has disappeared from task bar, and oddly, it will not allow me to uninstall either manually or from contr. panel.

    The icon for sygate does still appear in my start bar, it was shown as running, in the task manager list of apps.

    ====

    I just tried to d/load the latest version of Sygate ( 5.6) - but it would not allow me to install.

    Should I scrap it and go with another, such as ZA ? And will I need to configure specific ports to make sure I get connected ?

    Any assistance welcome.

    As an aside I have AVG updated and running - but obviously would like to have my firewall back.
