Guard Dog 3.0: Win9X

The Good Protects against unauthorized cookies; saves Web site passwords so that you don't have to remember them; blocks most banner ads.

The Bad Doesn't include a firewall to keep hackers from breaking in through your Net connection.

The Bottom Line Internet Guard Dog provides inexpensive protection if you connect to the Web via modem. But because it doesn't provide a firewall, cable and DSL users should look to Internet Security instead.

Guard Dog 3.0: Win9X

McAfee Internet Guard Dog 3.0 protects against an array of Net pitfalls, including unauthorized cookies, lost passwords, and annoying banner ads. At a list price of $39.95, this utility is cheaper than Norton Internet Security 2000, but it lacks Norton's advanced firewall features. It can't protect your PC from hacker attacks. Guard Dog is a solid choice if you dial in to the Internet, but cable and DSL users should steer clear.
