Hi, guys,

For the past almost five years I have been using Sygate Personal Firewall and never had any complaint about it. AS of tonight, though, it keeps crashing on me both at bootup and when I restart it manually.

I was running the latest build of the free version on my widnows 2000 system.

Since I was no longer able to start the program, I uninstalled it and reverted to a much older version, the oldest I still had on my system, which appears to have fixed the problem for now.

I was just wondering though if anyone else has had this happening. i know of Symantec's takeover of Sygate and their recent announcement to just ditch the program. so I was wondering if this might be connected to the sudden problem i have been experiencing.

I would much prefer to run a current version of the firewall and was wondering if there either was a fix for the crashes and also what people recommend as an alternative if or when sygate can no longer be installed on a system.

Thanks much for any help!
