Incompatibility: Chrome with Online Armor with HIPS Firewal?
by robb7thurston - 11/8/11 6:20 PM
My system: Dell Dimension PC running Win XP with Serv. Pk. 3, Security: MSE, and Online Armor with HIPS Firewall. My PC came bundled with MS IE, I upgraded to IE 8 and button it very tightly with supreme security settings. Browser: Iron, a spin off of Chrome, Don't let that confuse you,pretend I have Chrome, level 14 now--I update in lockstep with Chrome updates.
QUESTION: I read a review in Wilders Security which presented the information that Chrome and Online Armor/HIPS (OA) are incompatible. The writer suggested OA slows down Chrome. Is that a right or a wrong idea,please?
I am generally pleased with OA and MSE and Iron. If OA slows Iron or Chrome,I want to fire it. Then I need a firewall pretty close to OA: Free, two way firewall, with HIPS, really friendly for Idiots
(no offence i am tech challenged!) and it does not slow system or weigh too much.
Summamry: say whether OA conflicts with Chrome, if OA conflicts, select a freeware firewall a lot similar. If you present two or three or four candidates,I can read reviews and just try them out.
Kindest wishes for the education I am requesting!
