sp2 firewall

  mistyeyes1 18:28 26 Mar 05

I have sp2 that I installed by cd and using it's firewall but I have had nothing but trouble with worms and trojan horses so have turned it off and downloaded Zonealarm which I had before with no problems. Have I done something wrong or is there a problem with this firewall.

the windows firewall only protects you from incoming threats and not outgoing so if something gets on your pc it can call home and infect your pc with more of whatever.
you are better off with Zonealarm
