That sounds about right.  I tried to put ZA on a three computer network
at a different location.  It prevented the network from operating.  Now
I have only the windows incoming firewall on the computers.

That must have been several years ago. Sygate Personal Firewall hasn't
been available since about 2005, when it was bought up by Symantec. A
lot can change in five years.

I used ZA Firewall for a year after they offered a free years
subscription. I had no problem with it at all, and I found it to be
quite easy to use and had a good feature set. My subscription ran out a
few months ago and I didn't renew, but it wasn't because I found
anything wrong with the product.

+1 to that. But it's not easy.

Its installation program will prompt you to remove other AV, AS, and AM.
It doesn't do firewalling.

Would you trust an anti-virus program produced by the company who wrote
the operating system that needs it?

1.    What is AFAIK ?
2.    I indeed am wary about using a Microsoft product for security.
3.    What does "snipping attributes" mean?

On the bright side, it should operate more efficiently if not more
effectively because both the OS and the anti-virus device are Micro$oft.

On the _brighter_ side, if Microsoft was more efficient and effective,
you might not even need an anti-virus "device."

An attribute is:   "babel17 wrote:"   indicating who said the quoted
material. Man-wai Chang has the long-standing and annoying bad habit of
snipping (removing) them from replies, so a reader must look back
through the thread to see "who said that."

There's few of you left around who will give a straight answer to a
straight question without directing someone off to a website for an
answer. I usually make a fair effort to solve my problems through Google.
Lots of times if I don't find the answer I turn to the newsgroups for
help only to be redirected back out to a website.

Thanks for the straightforward answers. Mr. Chang will probably not ask
again now... :-)

Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off... :-)
