Hello.
I got EZ-trust anti-virus and I wanted to ask if this was a firewall also, and if not can I put a install a firewall without it hurting anything? Thanx for your help!

Hi Trevor

EZTrust Armor consists of EZTrust anti-virus and EZTrust firewall. Did you get the Armor?

If not you can also install a firewall without any problem. What is your operating system?

In that case you do need a firewall. I'm using SyGate right now. It's a free Norton product that works well and has a good help section you can read. Cool graphs too.

Kerio Personal Firewall is another popular one. Its free and you get to try the full version for the first thirty days.

ZoneAlarm is free and easy to use. EzTrust Firewall is actually ZoneAlarm with a different name.

Sygate Personal Firewall, from Sygate Technologies, is what I use and recommend. It is free and has many useful features and logs.
Regards,
John
