Thanks for the link, I am using it now. OK so far..... It seems to have a better memory than most.

What do you mean by "it seems to have a better memory than most"? What is a better memory?

The person means that it makes good use of memory. As in it does not use much memory. In simpler terms RAM Random Access Memory which is used by your computer to run programs and computer functions. It is best to use the least RAM you have to this will result in a faster computer. If you want to use a good Security Suite I recommend Zone Alarm Security Suite.

So 32 MB of memory will run a system faster than 2 gigs? :thumbsup:

That might be what this person means, but I'd rather ask the person that made the statment what they mean than asuming that I know what they mean.

haha, funny situation there there, I agree with your answer/reply to the second quote there groovicius, but I think he means that applications which use the least memory are better since it wont takes up as much RAM, and I seriously doubt 32MB RAM is better than 2GB...haha! Anyway the Comodo Firewall seems alright haven't tried it before myself but know a couple poeple that have and they are satisfied with the results..Guess we will 'ALL' have to try it to be sure.
