Real malware you would allow to run normally would'nt notice any
significant problems with ZA either.

My guess is, you are a normal cautious user and ZA is'nt really being
put to the test on your machine.

BTW, one of the problems with personal firewalls in general is that
when it blocks something it will let you know (even about the most
harmless things), and you as a user are happy because you think it
works. When it fails however, you most likely would'nt notice. The
perfect product for a salesman, really.

You are absolutely right. It's incredible what is being said in this
group about the effectiveness of personal firewalls running on a
windows platform.

But it is not surprising in any way. The marketing departments of
personal firewall vendors truly are doing a great job.

Does the platform really make a difference when it comes to host based
solutions?

Well, the 6.1 version use twice as much memory, and the transfer speed
is slightly lower than with the 4.5 versjon (I have compared them now)
