    @Choto Cheeta, read the post request - he is asking for free personal firewall. KIS is not free...

    I like both Kerio and ZoneAlarm because they are easy to use... ZA is easier, but Kerio gives more flexibility...

    Yeah... SP2's firewall is really user-friendly. You can either set it to on or off :D ... User-friendly Its light.... but isn't customisable to say the least...

    if you've Windows XP SP2, then ONLY go for ZA Free :wink: & make sure you've enuf RAM (ZA7 takes 25MB+ RAM), or try to get older version of ZA Free (v6.5... was lighter).
