I've installed a free version of Jetico yesterday. It works nicely and it takes less ressources than ZoneAlarm.
ThanksChicon said:Hi PhoenixNew,
I will explain you the best I can :
- First, I logged the computer with Administrator rights after the second reboot of my computer following the installation (the installation asked me to reboot twice),
- at the startup I got a pop-up to configure the trusted zones, I left it as it was as I do not have any network at home,
- as my computer is configured to connect the Internet at the start-up, I got a successive serie of pop-ups with the following four radios :
Allow this activity
Block this activity
Handle as ...
When I had the opportunity, I checked the Handle as and then selected Application Trusted zone (the check box Remind my answer is checked)
- when I was done with the serie of pop-ups, in the console of Jetico, I selected Options then I clicked the General icon : a window opened and there I put a check mark in the four check boxes in the upper part of the window,
- one by one, I launched all the applications that need to connect the Internet. For each of them, I marked them as Handle as Application Trusted zone, except Outlook Express which to be treated as Handle as Client Mail
- when I restart the computer, the savings were made.
As a freeware, Jetico is better than ZoneAlarm free. It uses less ressources (there's no True Vector Engine) but it blocks more intrusions.PhoenixNEW said:Thanks
Thats was beautiful.. I hope you have passed the test and now you are secure. Jetico is the best firewall ? I am now using Zone Alarm Pro with spy ware

I thought Jetico was no longer freeware with their new version of firewall? Are you sure it was freeware?
