My father in-law is on dial-up and has been trying to run zone alarm. Zone alarm likes to dial out frequently and ends up tying his phone line up when he is not on the computer. Supposedly the pay version has problems with this as well. He wants to leave his computer turned on, but can't have his second phone line tied up with random dial-outs when he is not using the computer. Maybe zone alarm is supposed to act like this, I don't know. What other firewall options are available these days for dial-up folks? Thanks Wayne Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
