Why do you need yim when there is a computer help section in FAC?

I have Avast. Pidgin was okay when I used it. I just might do that, but yeah...And the firewall I have is the one that came with my computer. Um...The pidgin thing helped a little...I suppose. Thanks. ^^;


There is also Trillian(sp), but I think you have to pay for it now.

Like I said, most firewalls that are installed on store-bought systems are crap. McAfee, and Norton products are two of the most common. Without proper computer care (or the proper computer setup for that matter,) these programs degrade performance tremendously. Whats more is that they are usually "free" or basically extended trial installations, meaning that after about 6 months to a year they stop doing any helpful work at all, and only bog down the computers resources.

I don't trust Norton, or McAfee. At all. I usually take comp. advice from bro. and he said neither do jack squat. Also, thanks for the help. ^^

None of the messenger progs are exactly stellar...

CA, Kaspersky, and N360 (360...not NIS) are decent right now...and for new computer users, DON'T use pre-installed trial versions of ANY firewall software...You're better off uninstalling it and finding one of choice and going from there...
