PostSubject: WoT/firewall probs   Tue Sep 17, 2013 9:19 am

No clue as to why, but Wot and my firewall haven't been playing well, together for months. I'd clear the firewall permissions, uninstall the game, reinstall it and try again. It would work, once, then never again. Wash, rinse, repeat......no luck. Updated all drivers, checked for viruses, spyware, defraged the HD, still no luck. Checked for latest version of firewall, good to go. Just for the hell of it, I tried again, today. Logged in, no problem, played a few rounds. No clue wtf is/was wrong. OS is Win7 Ultimate 64 bit, running latest drivers for entire PC. Firewall is Zonealarm + antivirus and never had any problems from program conflicts. Searchs of forums for both programs hasn't helped. Will advise further info. scratch scratch scratch scratch scratch

Zonealarm's parent company bought Kaspersky Antivirus, so that's what comes with it.

Zonealarm is the best free firewall available and has been for years, now. Quite a bit more effective than the 'name' firewalls. Kaspersky is also free and come as a bundle. Used to use Norton 360, but decided renewing was for the birds, when I could get free programs for the same things, that work as well.

You know just a word of common sense tells you that free shit is FREE for a reason, because it's not fucking worth buying. use that piece of shit free stuff all you want, but now you see the problems that come with it don't you?

Kaspersky and Zone alarm are still two seperate programs. Kaspersky is rated one of the absolute best AV programs on the market, Zone alarm Firewall is known to be a piece of shit. Do some research and compare the two and you will find how shitty zone alarm is. Zone alarm is the companies cheap knockoff that they let you have free, if you get a free copy of Kaspersky you're not getting all of the features it has. Kaspersky has key loggers that protect passwords and usernames when you go into a website and start typing. I've used Kaspersky for years and never had one single problem with anything getting through. Both of my uncles had zone alarm and after several trips to have their pc's fixed after getting viruses they both use what i told them to use in the first place KASPERSKY.

In your research you'll find that zone alarm firewall is very well known for exactly the problem you're having as well as causing the blue screen of death. It's just cheap. Kaspersky on the other hand is the company that finally found the virus that infected the Iranian govt's computer system a few years ago. I also use Panda software on my laptop and it has been extremely good never had a problem on that computer either and i got that one in 2005.

I also have no use for a firewall other than the one that comes with Windows, i use just an anti-virus program. And if an anti-virus can block all of that Philipino lady boy porn that Sammy keeps sending me, then it can block any caser of monkey pox that you'll encounter watching your beastiality porn
