it all depends what kind of router you have. i dont need a software firewall, because my router has an excellent firewall built in, so good
unfortunately that some things i can't recieve cause they get blocked. i still have some messing around to do with it, but it all depends on the type
of router you have.
My computer has starting doing some really strange things, i.e. slowed down considerably, as well as making strange noises while no one is using it.
When I click on the connention icon in the system tray it is showing that I am sending and receiving data even when I do not have a page opened. Does
this make since or has my computer been highjacked?
if i were you i would dump my entire harddrive, and start over, and when you do, before you start installing anything, get a good firewall and
antivirus software downloaded first.
i run my antivirus (norton) everynight before i go to bed, and i have adaware, and spybot run everytime im done with the internet, so far, this system
works really well. if you want some good sites for downloading these, just U2U me. ill gladly give you some help.
