I haven’t been writing as much as I’d like to lately, in part because I had to deal with my Dell Inspiron laptop. What’s the matter? After installing Windows XP Service Pack2 – which beefs up security with numerous improvements and a software firewall, I ran into problems with my existing firewall from ZoneAlarm. The two weren’t too happy together.
After some browsing on CNET, I came across two articles relevant to improving your computer’s security. The first of discusses the question Is it better to use the Windows XP SP2 firewall and turn off ZoneAlarm or the other way around? while the second article sheds light on Is your laptop safe at the coffee shop? I can’t imagine that I am the only one wondering about these questions, so enjoy the articles.
