The firewall software mentioned are very good free devices, however I have found at least one of them (Zonealarm) is not very customisable. I have found that Norton Internet Security 2002 is an excellent tool for all round security, it provides Anti-virus, Firewall, Ad Blocking and a very useful Parental Control facility. Obviously this comes at a cost and a lot depends on what you want to protect yourself against. I am not discounting any of the other suggestions, but it all depends on your budget and your security requirements. Good Luck. H.

Create the perfect environment for any meeting

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

Zonealarm pro is cutomizable, more so than the free version
I use a d-link residential gateway (hardware, with a built in firewall) $80 US, and I have ZA pro (dual firewalls so to speak)
the d-link has a log so I can see who is trying to access my ports, listed with ip addresses and ports attempted

Apart from the firewall & anti-virus, you may take a look at this page:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/current.asp

Microsoft is maintaining a security bulletin, which informs you on the security flaws recently discovered and the available patches. Search for the patches for Win 98, Outlook, Internet Explorer and all M$ software you may run.

See this page as well:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q303215

This is a tool that check the status of the patches installed on your machine and shows which ones you need.

For Win 98, it will only check for the IE patches.

I personnaly don't like Norton, and a very good Internet security equivalent is eZ-Armor:
