Lightweight firewall for 2000

October 1, 2010 at 12:51:49
Specs: Windows 2000pro, P3/475/384
Hi to all. Thanks for taking the time to look at my thread. Today, I am looking for a freeware lightweight firewall for this old computer I have Compaq Deskpro (P3/475/384ram) running 2000 pro. I picked up a old version of Comodo v3 from file hippo, but it must be more of a resource hog than this old one can handle, because talk about lag on the net, it really slowed the machine down to a crawl. Any suggestions for a different firewall I can try are welcome.

Regards
Ike

At the middle of the site, there are listed the free versions.

Thanks for the link paulsep, but I can`t use the pc tools firewall plus, it doesn`t support 2000. Thanks Jam, that is going to be my next step, I will try going older in the versions. Thanks for the tips guys.

Regards
Ike

I installed PCTOOLS firewall on several Windows 2000 PCs, one year ago, and it worked.

Just going by "their system requirements", and 2000pro is not listed.

A simple solution would be to spend about $50.00 (USD), buy a SOHO Router and put it between your PC and the internet.

A router won't care what OS you use and won't use up any of the PC's resources thus slowing it down.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
