Hey group,

Just got a Cable Modem Friday (lovin' it), and I've had Norton Internet Security on my PC for about 3 months now - seemed to do the job on dialup, but with the cable modem, Im noticing more frequent lockups ( I know, NIS is nasty, hence this posting)

Ive heard things about ZoneAlarm and BlackIce, but I'm big on online gaming, and form what ive read, Zonealarm is not nice to online gamers, whereas BlackIce is? I just want my PC protected (seems I picked up a harmless work in the past week already - friggin NIS)

Is BlackIce the deal? Suggestions?opinions appreciated.

It is the deal. Get it. Use it.

They are offering a rebate right now, you can get it for $9.95 or something like it from Frys.
