    Just bought a new computer and I'm looking for the best firewall that will protect me. I used Armor with my old XP system and it seemed to work well, yet all the store gurus seem to think that the built in Windows firewall is just the "best". Any ideas?

Three of its stars had already appeared in previous series: Bea Arthur in "Maude," Betty White in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and McClanahan in "Mama's Family." The last character to be cast was Sophia Petrillo, the feisty 80-something mother of Arthur's character. "Our mother-daughter relationship was one of the greatest comic duos ever, and I will miss her," Arthur said in a statement. When she auditioned, Getty was appearing on stage...
