    Well I have been using both ZoneAlarm and Outpost for quite some time now...

    I think Outpost is better...however ZA is easier to configure :p

    ZoneAlarm.

    This has been discussed many times over. A simple search would have given instant answer to the question

    IMHO.. Outpost is the best if you want an application based firewall. Otherwise the default Windows XP firewall is good enough if you have a good antivirus.

    P.S. I use Win XP firewall only when im in windows.

    if outpost is your choice, then there's a Full version available (v2.7 & with key) in other magzine's DVD.
    But the downside is that now version 3.51 is available & you cannot upgrade to the latest version for FREE coz the license key is LIMITED to v2.7.

    But you get the full version of the PAID software for FREE.

    check out the version history--http://www.agnitum.com/products/outpost/history.php

    But still i suggest ZoneAlarm Pro
    NO Offence guys.

    get outpost with ur eyes closed.(paid version)
    small mem consumption.
    just set it to run in the backround mode.u wont even know its there.
    has an integrated spyware scanner.
    couple dis wit NOD32.u wont ave any problems.
    some programs will have to b given access manually once.thats it.

    @kalpik, thats what i've already mentioned, its a outdated software.
    But its a good choice if you want a good(paid) firewall for FREE.

    Dont know why its given with the other magazine, even though its OUTDATED s/w, (not good marketing from a reputed mag. atleast v3. should've been given).

    Anyways my VOTE again to ZoneAlarm for Ease of use(configuring) & other features-->cache cleaning, sitelist, & its interface. & i dont know whether this feature is available in OutPost, --in ZA there's a game mode, very nice feature for gamers.

    @kaustav_geek dude check out this site & see the Comparo.
