    I just started using the Online-Armor firewall. It passed all the GRC tests except that it did answer a ping request. How do I keep this firewall from answering pings? I'm using XP Pro w/Service Pack 3.

    I recently used the Comodo Active Connections window to display network connections. Its great. Does anyone know of a standalone utility that does the same thing? The more and more I see Comodo the more respect I have for it. - John

False 'expirations' with McAfee?

Anyone encounter false expiration notices when starting up McAfee's Security 
7 or similar packages? After several months of smooth performance, with many 
automatic updates, my Personal Firewall and Privacy Service sections 
indicated they'd expired. A day earlier I'd received a McAfee message urging 
me to purchase a ~$11 CDROM, which I declined. With online tech help, I 
spend about 45 minutes deleting the two sections, then reinstalling them 
with a custom reinstall.

This happened to me too. I got rid of the Privacy Service Software.
It's terrible! I can't believe I contributed to such a piece of crap.
However, the firewall is decent for a SW firewall.
