Using Zone Alarm or Zone Alarm Pro for your firewall?

The Reverend

Recommended Posts

If you are using Zone Alarm or Zone Alarm Pro as a firewall, did you know that windows is keeping a "running" log of the activity that needs to be cleared out every now and then?  In c:windowsinternet logs you'll find several .tmp files along with your Zone Alarm logs (which you can double-click to open and see whatz been happening on your firewall scene.  Before I started using a router with a hardware firewall built into it, my Zone Alarm Pro took 170,000 'hits' from the bad boys trying to get in, along with the usual 'pings' and spurious traffic.

Anyway, please do your computer a favor and clean out these files (but be careful to not delete anything but the ZA-related files!!!) every now and then or they will just keep adding up until you have several megabytes of useless info in there!  heheh...

Hope this helps a few!
