    For starters..you're hoping for a piece of Hardware that will do the job? I don't think that's really available. Look into software.
    I run Avast antivirus/antispam/firewall along with Spybot search & Destroy and Malwarebytes all live at the same time and run a weekly screening of my computer with all of them. That catches everything and I have not had any problems, other than some spyware/malware that makes it through but gets caught in a full scan.

    first of all thank you for your responce. it is greatly apreciated.
    i have a rather good handle on the maintenance, anti virus, malware reapir, and such as repair programs go

    what i am focusing on more is the initial stopping of problems before they happen.

    a firewall for instance
    this stops thing from ever happening to begin with
    i refuse to use windows firewall because they gave uncle sam personal back doors
    another firewall i have delt with was comodo, while it seemed very good indeed it was to hard to deal with, and gave nowhere near enough information or control

    i am looking for something that will give TOTAL real time info, complete control of PC activities, and complet control of networking activity

    BitDefender and Avast! both have real-time screening rather than passive for instance, that only runs scheduled scans for things already on your system.
    They are top rated anti virus and firewall programs.
    You're right on komodo, I used that and AVG for awhile on test runs. They are a P.I.T.A. and for me were annoying because the popups were non-stop, though they do allow you to see everything going on via these popups.

    As far as complete control of the network and PC activities are you looking for something to monitor who does what with your computer when you're not around it? There are ghost programs out here for that which do not tell other users that they are being recorded.

    As far as Windows firewall, I think you'll find that none of the firewall programs out there are immune to the government with or without a "back door".
    The NSA just has a monopoly on all the technology for this and they can even decrypt most or all secure coding including encrypted information.

    Check with you ISP provider and see if they offer a free program. I have Comcast, and they offer the best antivirus, firewall, and spyware protection, that Norton has to offer for free.
