Firewall for your Vulnerable PC
Product Review By David Taylor, Canada
Some time ago, firewalls became an indispensable tool to
protect critical information on computer systems. That's
because firewall technology has been perfected over the years
due to overwhelming demand by corporate information technology
(IT) staffs, which save companies millions of dollars every
year by preventing corporate crime.
A firewall acts like a protective gateway that shields a
private computer user or network of users from external
threats, such as hackers and viruses. More recently, "personal
firewalls" have been made to suit individual PC users too.
firewall is especially important if you have a
high-speed Internet connection
to take over broadband machines because they can use them
to spread spam even faster! So in short, if you don't have a
firewall installed, then as soon as you connect to the Web
(before you even start your browser or e-mail client) you are

computer, even WINDOWS PROGRAMS
It is very alert and protective.
What I mean is -- Armor2net shows the currently active
connections and the details of these connections (Remote
Address/Port, Local Application/Port, Protocol and Status).
You can shut off any connection that you think is dangerous to
Armor2net has a traffic indicator that shows when traffic
leaves or enters your computer and displays the total amount
of ingoing and outgoing data. In this tab, you can add any
site you wish to block to your Banned Sites List.
