    Wow nice review that..So after all Zonealarm may not be that secure
    Ok
    1) Look n stop ( Never heard of tht firewall before ) is first
    2) OutPost is Second best
    3) My very Own Zone Alarm Came 3rd .. :cry: Miserable .
    Kaspersky n Norton n Sygate all fare very bad.
    And the most talked about windows Xp service pack 2 fails all of the tests. Theres really no difference between SP1 ans SP2
    Come to think of this...anyone got link to Look n Stop Firewall download. :roll:

    my view...

    Kaspersky is ok so is black ice ..but dont go for zone-alarm and norton..they are just crap...The packets can be easily sent thro these two firewalls really quickly..
    BTW Nice stats and thanks ..iam very glad tht many sys are vuln to attack becoz tht stats show tht more than 70% use ZA pro :lol:

    Re: my view...

    huh ? ZA got 17/24 and its rated as the 3rd best of the lot tested. Kaspersky failed on most tests !!! why would anyone reccomend it :roll: Come on man....sending packets thru is one thing...however the packets needs to be received and also instructions need to be sent. I have tried the above tests myself and ZA works on most and Kaspersky failed.!! Or perhaps ur just trying to soften up the people so that u can sucker them into using Kaspersky ;) benefits u doesnt it ;) hehe

    Norton Internet Security is the best,includes personal firewall.

    ANY user should have a firewall
    try the new zone alarm 5.5
    its OUT OF BETA .
    thats the version tested in the above comparison
    if u are STILL skeptical
    use the one that topped the comparison
    link is already given in the thread !
