As long as Sygate is up to date, it is one of the best free firewalls, just a little more complicated than Zonealarm to use. Since you are on the Broadband forum,
I'm assuming an "always on" connection. My Sygate stays
red from the pings. But a firewall of any kind only restricts access to those you allow in. It does not have
anything to do with viruses, adware, spyware or parasites
in things(downloads, email, EMAIL ATTACHMENTS,etc) that came in legitimately. That's why you have up to date virus programs and spyware/adware programs also. There are very good FREE ones out there. Chuck
Hello guys...I have Sygate personal Firewall and it is always detecting others scanning my ports. Recently I suspect my machine had been hijacked because of unsual activity and behaviour. Should I upgrade to a better firewall or maybe tweak my settings.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
