    Hmm, which should I run? BlackICE or ZoneAlarm? Both are pretty good.

    !!!WARNING!!! Don't install this in W2000.
    I installed it with BlackIce running and now W2000 is going bananas. Can't uninstall,get to start menu,etc. I though W2000 was crash-proof but this sure did a number on me.
    Make sure BlackIce is disabled or uninstalled before installing this is all I can suggest.

    Unhappy

    Man I'm sorry bout that link not working any more but it crashed bout the same time my W2000 locked up. They must have other problems with that firewall prog. and I hope no one else crashed like me. Still trying to resurect W2000.

    Thumbs up

    The link to zonelabs is back up and W2000 IS
    mentioned. Think I'm going to write them a letter.
