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?
Or????

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.

Clarification
The programs install fine but BSODs occur after install during normal bootup

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
