I have two computers- a desktop and a laptop. The desktop is connected via Ethernet cable and the laptop is Wi-fi. They are not networked. A few weeks ago I installed Zone-Alarm firewall on the laptop to try it out and immediately got loads of red alerts flagging up saying my computer was being accessed. I had a look on some forums and there was mention that ping tests cause this and to expect loads of alerts. It scared the c*** out of me and I eventually unintalled Zone Alarm and went back to using the one on Windows and the router one which don't filter outgoing traffic.
I am now thinking about having another try with either Zone Alarm or Comodo but wonder if anyone could answer the following:
1. How do I know if these red alerts are actually ping tests?
2. What to I do with my built in firewalls if I download one of these?
3. Is is usual to get loads of alerts?
Be gentle with me!
