Want to know what's the best/popular firewall program do you ppl here use. I have a Conseal PC Firewall and it keeps bombarding me with "IP#" wants to connect to your PC, so it's kinda difficult to use.

I use Sygate Personal Firewall (it's personal). It seems to work pretty well. You can fully customize it and it isn't too annoying once you get things set. If you upgrade a browser or something it gets concerned, but other than that I can't really say anything bad about it. Plus it shows up and down traffic and logs IPs, which is great since I run a server.

I use ZoneAlarm Pro. I can't remember any problems.

yeah.. I recommend anyone here who have advertisement pop-up problems use this firewall, not sure about how good other firewalls are though.

so is it a firewall or a pop-up blocker? and is it free to d/l online or do you have to buy it? Where can I find it either way.

Here (http://www.zonelabs.com/store/application;jsessionid=1jV1bFnjKjZ1UUPBYzQrHuCrC2n QtdPABMcBqz8SfbkgzDaJDUch!-1416537161!-1062696905!7551!7552!832372649!-1062696903!7551!7552?namespace=zls_catalog&origin=global.jsp&event=link.skuList&&zl_catalog_view_id=201&lid=nav_db) is where you can get it. It isn't free. But, it is worth the money. You can downlaod it off the site, or you can go purchase it at your local electronics store. It is a firewall, lots of firewalls are capable of blocking pop-ups.
