I've been using NPF and it's fine for me but I'm setting up a home network. The others in my family are not technically aware and I'm sure they'll be confused by all the popups it asks regarding program access. After a few "Program X is trying to access - is this OK?" type questions they'll just always say 'yes' - defeating the purpose. It's that old "boy who cried wolf" kind of thing.I saw ZAP 6 might avoid lots of popups with the SmartDefense feature. Seems like it could keep a huge database of programs known to be safe (with matching hashes or such). This could result in only seeing popups that really need attention. If that's the case, I could easily tell my family to get me if they ever see one. Obviously, I don't want to run to their computers if they'll be seeing lots of them.So, can anyone tell me whether I'll be seeing lots of popups? Ordoes ZAP still go through a "learning phase" with lots of interaction? Thanks in advance.
