    ZONE ALARM pro is the best.. good for defense.. low oon sys requirements

    use this !!!

    also dont worry abt the notifications u get.. once u get hold of which program really need internet access. zone alarm never bothers u again once it makes up its internet access programs list

    actually i just use win xp SP1 and da win xp firewall and i never actually found the need for more firewall protection. ive even got norotn 2004 installed n dats good enuf 4 me.

    if u got sp2 and an antivrus like mcafee or norton, i think u dont really need another firewall software.

    ZAP

    ZoneAlarmPro, its the best I've ever used. I had McAfee Firewall before, but it got too complicated. ZAP's been updated to work with SP2, so no compatibility issues or anything there now. In fact, it automatically turns off Windows Firewall when its running, so you can rest easy about that long list of programs that dont work well with Windows Firewall. Not to mention the fact that ZAP has a good ad and animation blocker, mobile code blocker, identity and privacy protection and a minimum interference GUI, and that too, neatly categorized, you cant go wrong with it. Try it and see.
