    Hello:

    I would like to know what is your opinion about Kerio Personal Firewall.

    I would like to install it but I need some advice.

    I have Windows XP firewall already. Symantec anti-virus and AdAware 6.0 plus Spybot Search and Destroy.

    Some say that Windows' firewall is not enough, that I need another one.

    Need your opinion please.

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    :)

    I use Kerio Personal Firewall instead of the Windows XP firewall at home. I think it's a lot better because of the ability to see what programs are executing and which ports are being used to listen on your computer.

    I've also heard that the XP firewall may get disabled by certain types of viruses, leaving you unprotected.

    I think you should try it out; it's free for home users anyways. If you don't like it you can always uninstall it and try ZoneAlarm or some other type of firewall.
