Sygate won't block this?

Hey guys, I just switched over to Sygate Personal Firewall from the Zonealarm free version. A few minutes ago I got one of those messenger service spams for the first time. I would think Sygate would block this. Seeing as how this is the first messenger spam I've gotten I would guess that ZA was blocking them. Does Sygate not block these? :eh?: If you guys don't know what I'm talking about I can post a pic of the spam...

Thats what I was planning to do... But I'm still curious as to whether Sygate or ZA will block this without disabling the service.

for some reason, I have NEVER in my life gotten one of those. At one point I was running my computer in DMZ mode with no firewall. That leaves the computer completely exposed.

herm... maybe I don't visit the right kind of sites.
