Hi Brian, Greg, DA, et al;
Re: System Works 2003
I have used System Works for a number of years with good results.
There is a custom installation that allows the user to set some
of the programs to not run at startup and I uncheck any others
in the MSCONFIG Startup list so no NSW programs are running in the
background. I then run each program when desired.
Each year they update the programs it seems to become less capable.
The System Check program isn't loaded with the 2003 version but it
is on the CD and can be loaded manually. Also the NAV takes about
twice as long as the 2002 version to check for viruses. I think
it may be running a new test.
I downloaded and installed the free program and found I need to learn
more about the types of protocols and intrusion methods before I can
set it up correctly. I don't think the default settings will be
sufficient. I un-installed and went back to Zone Alarm Free.
I'll re-test Outpost after I thoroughly read the User's Guide.
All the firewalls report blocked intrusions but they can't report
those that get through the firewall. :-))
Thanks for bringing Outpost to my attention, Len
