Do I need Zonealarm with Nod32?

I have both Nod32 v6 and Zonealarm (free) loaded onto XP. Do I need Zonealarm? What are my option if I want to get rid of it (e.g. Upgrade to get the nod firewall, get windows defender etc)?

Yes NOD32 does not include a Firewall, so it might be good to have ZoneAlarm in your case for.


But if I were you I would upgrade NOD32 to ESET Smart Security wich includes a firewall, as having ESS alone instead of both NOD32 and Zonealarm would be a lighter solution in my experience.

Windows XP has it's own native Firewall.

Use of third party software may not be necessary unless you wish to deploy ZoneAlarm just the same.




Even though that I use Eset Smart Security and are very pleased regarding its firewall performance, then I am inclined to agree with siljaline. Windows native firewall is actully quite solid. So I would absolutely have no fear in just using nod32 and Windows  firewall.
