    Hi! I Run WIndows XP Professional on an Intel D865 motherboard with 256 MB DDR SDRAM. I had Zone Alarm firewall installed on my system, but recently I installed service pack 2 for my OS and as Zone Alarm doesn't work with SP-2 I uninstalled it. What I want to know is wheather the firewall provided with SP-2 is sufficient enough or should I install something additional along side? Does anybody have any idea about Outpost firewall? :?:

    and also install the newer version of ZoneAlarm. it is compatible with SP 2 and it'll work better than Windows Firewall.
