    Sygate update

    Sygate Personal Firewall <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> version has been updated. Get Version 5.6.2808 here. FWIW, the XP SP-2 security center recognizes this version.

    Re: Sygate update

    I installed the .msi version and ended up having to remove it and roll back to the previous version. Every time I booted up SPF would report errors with files in my Temp folder (which were already gone) and then say it had to shut down. This would then prompt multiple Dr Watsons to pop up, locking up my computer until I used the Task Manager to kill the doctor. SPF would continue to run for a while even after the message it was shutting down. This happened both when I installed on top of the previous version and when it was done after uninstalling.

    I have 100% the same result as you describe with the .msi and .exe version and also have gone back to .2710
    which for whatever reason(s) works OK.
    So far Sygate support has suggested a different download site to get another .msi version but the result was the same, Dr Watson and Error reports till I shot the Dr.
    Be interested if others using spf (free) have had similar problems and how and if it was resolved.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
