    personal firewall lacks xml product code


    I have been contacted by phone by someone claiming to be MS support person wanting to fix a reported error in my personal firewall. How can I verify this? I ran Macafee MVT which does report that the Personal firewall is not functioning because it lacks some xml code.


    They want $300 to fix this. I am running Windows 8.1. If I installed Windows 10, would the firewall be fixed as part of the installation?

    :)

  2. Good Antivirus + Firewall

    I would never put anything Norton on my computer.

    Nod32 is arguably the best antivirus. AVG is likely not as good, but it's free and at least pretty good.

    Firewalls, I'd put Comodo and whatever "Tiny Personal Firewall" is named nowadays on your short list. I think Kerio might have sold it now and it's named something else. Otherwise, just put Comodo on your short list. I think the current version's ease of use has taken a step backwards, seems a bit counter-intuitive when trying to do certain things with it, but overall it does a good job and the price is right.

    C++ source code to compare XML files like ExamXML XML differ

    I’m working on a Linux project that includes identifying changes between XML files and I need a source code on C++ to compare XML fragments.
    I’m using differencing tool ExamXML from A7Soft provides tools to compare XML documents to compare and merge XML files but this is Windows application.

    Thanks.

    Personal firewalls cause more problems then they solve.

    Recent testing by Munich-based PC Professionell is showing results that are not boding well for personal firewall manufacterers. The personal firewalls the magazine tested, from shady freeware to heavily advertised professional editions, could not block all attempts for programs to gain outbound access to the internet. Several firewalls were even turned off by the programs accessing the internet. These firewalls are simply not comparable to corporate firewalls. Corporations have the resources to buy entire computers dedicated to defending a network. The magazine also found much more effective ways to protect yourself online.
    • Browsers are the most vulnerable part of the computer, and Javascript is the most vulnerable part of the browser. Be sure you know who's installing what into your browser.
    • Use common sense when browsing. According to the German Federal Agency for Security in Information Technology, "Desktop firewalls, as they are also called, are practically extraneous, presuming that you adhere to the basic rules of safe surfing,"
    • Keep your applications up to date. Malware takes advantage of the published flaws in a program, so patches for those flaws can keep your computer safe.
    • Buy a hardware router. They take the roll of a firewall, and render software that plays the role of a firewall useless.
    • Don't open E-mail attachments from people you don't know.
