"NOT THE BEST"

May 15, 2006  |  By prophet1260

 |  Version: Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4.2.3.912

Pros

it has pretty good security, passed all probe tests at the numorous sites i went to. passed some leaktests but not all. A plus is the added web content filtering, although alot of it is just unnecessary in a firewall.

Cons

Way to bloated with features you really don't need. A huge memory and resource hog, worse than ZA. not the best protection out there when it comes to firewalls. Way too many gliches. I got the blue screen of death way too many times during my 30 day trial, of which i had never gotten before until i installed this firewall. Also wouldn't allow me to perform a disk check at startup unless in safe mode, wouldn't allow access to volume C:, even after i disabled the protection at boot up option. i even totally disabled the firewall and shut it down in services and still nothing. There is just too many gliches and bugs in it for my taste. thanks but no thanks.

"Like it, but too many problems"

May 15, 2006  |  By nseefeldt77

 |  Version: Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4.2.3.912

Pros

This was very easy to configure and worked quite well, but with one major drawback...

Cons

Too many kernel memory dumps! I don't know how it functioned on other systems but it certainly seemed to dump every other time on my notebook using Win2k.

Pros

Easy to use, very intuitive. I dumped my McAfee Firewall for a much better program, Kerio Personal firewall.

"A waste of a good 3 hours of time"

May 09, 2006  |  By iamconan

 |  Version: Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4.2.3.912

Pros

The interface is well laid out.

Cons

I have a Win XP with a new Dell Computer. I downloaded Kerio after reading the reviews on it. It worked fine for the first 30 min. or so, and then I noticed that more and more of the websites were being partially deleted due to the privacy portion of the firewall. I had to locate the off button for the privacy section and turn it off, in order to look at the web pages. Reading the help guide on the software was ok, not good, but ok. It leaves many parts off, such as the privacy section. Some portions it explains on what to do and the other parts it leaves up to you to figure out. This area was very confusing and not as easy to work as Zone Alarm.

Also after working with the computer for the 30 min or so, I started checking out some other sites, like Disneyland, etc. and then my whole screen turned blue and gave mumbo jumbo about a memory dump! It requested I reboot or uninstall the recent software installed.

I went back to the reviews of this Kerio firewall software and seen that it does give off BSOD to various computers. After checking this out for approx 3 hrs, and having a crazy time trying to fix the privacy section and getting a BSOD, I removed the software and went back to my Zone Alarm Pro, which I never received a BSOD on ever. Oh well, I just wanted to test the Kerio and did not like the results. The firewall layout was good, except for the logs, which were confusing, unless you reviewed the help guide at the same time. I may try later if the reviews improve.

"Who wrote all of those 5 star reviews??"

April 27, 2006  |  By LeftFeeled

 |  Version: Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4.2.3.912

Cons

1)Resource hog

2)No uninstall

3)Run a program such as "What's Running" with this firewall up. I had 33 processes running and 25 of them were either kpf4gui.exe (11) or kpf4ss.exe (14)! I wrote to support, they said to uninstall via Add/Remove Programs... yeah, right... and gave me another link to download and reinstall... same thing. Don't waste your money, folks.

"Very good. Very solid. Well worth the money."

April 25, 2006  |  By Street Spirit

 |  Version: Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4.2.3.912

Pros

This is built solidly, and does exactly what is says it does and does it very well. I used to use ZoneAlarm Pro but that let me down a few times. This, so far has shown no problems, and from the looks of it never will.

"Good firewall."

April 19, 2006  |  By cetoka

 |  Version: Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4.2.3.912

Pros

Light on system resources.If you use AVG it is better to use kerio.Before I was using zonealarm but kerio is better than zonealarm free.

Cons

The configuration window cannot be resized.I would prefer a smaller window.

"Very solid, easy to configure firewall"

April 13, 2006  |  By ghost_pirate

 |  Version: Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4.2.3.912

Pros

I have a small home network and I use two different firewalls, this one and ZoneAlarm. Pretty soon, it's just going to be this one. I don't know if you've ever tried to set up a network running ZoneAlarm, but it can be a real bear. Kerio, on the other hand, is a breeze to configure. Even though some options are disabled after 30 days if you don't purchase a license, they aren't crucial to the firewall and are just very nice added touches. However, at just $19.95 for the full version the additional features offered make this firewall an absolute steal. Highly recommended download.
