    MS Security CD

    I finally received the MS freebie CD with the security updates, ( up to Oct. 03, but dates on the files are Feb. 04??? ) Looks OK. I filed it away for possible future use.

    They also included another CD with an Anti Virus and Firewall progs with a 1 year free trial. You can select either one or both to install. They are from Computer Associates Inc. ( CAI ) So I tried the firewall in place of Zone Alarm, just to compare it. Well, to me anyway, it looks exactly like ZA in a slightly different package. Screens are basically the same, options about the same, and has the same features as ZA Pro.

    I'll let it run for now and report any problems or quirks. <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>

    Anyone else tried it?

    Hi Bob,

    I got mine as well. Stuck in the update disk and it indicated that I had everything installed, at least to whatever point this disk goes to. I hadn't done anything with the virus or firewall software because I hadn't realized you could install only one or the other. I have Nortons(virus app. only) good to 2005 but if I can try the firewall out - that will be nice. Guess I will dig out my copy of it again and take another look!! Thanks for the "update" about the disk! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Skitterbug,

    If you want to just install the Firewall, you have to get a "key" from CAI. Just go to the site below and "ask Sammy" ( their customer service on line guy ) Tell them you got the MS EZ Armor CD and want to install just the firewall and they will give you a key and DL instructions.

    Go to: ASK SAMMY
