Incompatibility: Chrome with Online Armor with HIPS Firewall?
My system: Dell Dimension PC running Win XP with Serv. Pk. 3, Security: MSE, and Online Armor with HIPS and Firewall. My PC came bundled with MS IE, I upgraded to IE 8 and button it very tightly with supreme security settings. Browser: Iron, a spin off of Chrome, Don't let that confuse you,pretend I have Chrome, level 14 now--I update in lockstep with Chrome updates.
QUESTION: I read a review in Wilders Security which presented the information that Chrome and Online Armor/HIPS (OA) are incompatible. The writer suggested OA slows down Chrome. Is that a right or a wrong idea,please?
I am generally pleased with OA and MSE and Iron. If OA slows Iron or Chrome,I want to fire it. Then I need a firewall pretty close to OA: Free, two way firewall, with HIPS, really friendly for Idiots
(no offence i am tech challenged!) and itis compatible, does not slow system, or weigh too much.
Summamry: say whether OA conflicts with Chrome, if OA conflicts, select a freeware firewall a lot similar. If you present two or three or four candidates,I can read reviews and just try them out.
Kindest wishes for the education I am requesting!

Here is the Wilders statement:

As far as I know only if you are using Online Armor as your firewall/hips. The incompatibility is with OA,not Chrome or SB. ...

Combine that perfect browser with built-in securitymeasures (Windows Firewall, operating system ..."
