Laptop Firewall


I'm trying
11 May 2002
I am having problems successfully installing a firewall on my laptop. I only need it when travelling as I am behind a Linux box at work and linksys at home though it cant hurt.
I have tried Kerio and Outpost(1st choices) as well as Zone alarm. BSOD result on boot up.
Tosh Satellite 5200
intel 2.4
512 ram
XP Pro
KAV anitvirus
Should the boot order be changed?
I'm surprised that both Kerio and Outpost brought up STOP errors at bootup. There might be something else that's causing conflicts, but I'm not sure where to start without more information.

Have you tried Sygate? That's another trusted software firewall that a lot of people use.
Make sure antivirus is up to date. Then run a full scan of the machine. A long shot but some virii/worms will tamper with antivirus and firewall installs to protect themselves.

Also check KAV (Kerio Antivirus?) Outpost, ZA FAQs to see if there is a known conflict on install. The KAV might be preventing the firewall install. You may need to disable AV to install a firewall.

I've never seen a firewall not install on a clean machine.
The programs install fine but BSODs occur after install during normal bootup

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
