BlackIce Defender

I finally got the lastest update to BlackIce when it was compatible with Windows XP. Well, it seems that Windows XP has a nasty habit of rebooting on itself.

Has anyone got BlackIce to work?

I don't remember if I disabled the MS firewall. I think I did...maybe I didn't.

Actually while scrounging the net. I found out BlackIce and Norton Anti-Virus does not work well with one another at startup. There is a hack fix. So will try this tonight and see what happens.

BTW...did you disable MS Firewall or left it on?

Thanks.

if you think....

if you think ZoneAlarm is too buggy, it sounds like you haven't tried recent versions...which are very stable and bug free. I am glad to hear that you have no problems with BID...accept for the fact that if you did have a trojan that your A/V didn't catch, it would be calling home and you wouldn't know you had a problem, because BID does NOT watch/protect for outbound...only inbound...

I know BID has recently tried to claim that they did protect vs outbound, but their claims were already proven false in testing. So, while BID may give you no problems...it is also only giving you half the protection a proper firewall should.....

Blade, to stop that annoying..."do you want...." go into the configuration tab of ZoneAlarm, and authorize your trusted apps (game exe's etc....) to access the internet and/or server and it will stop alot of those questions....just leave e-mail on a per ask basis! hehe

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
