    I use Zone Labs' ZoneAlarm myself (the free version) and find it easy to use plus very good. :thumb:

    I use ZA cause the price is right.
    Recently however I was reading an article on how a bot or virii can be tied to a IE DLL to trick ZA into allowing it to connect. Oh well, as with all such things it is only a matter of time:rolleyes:

    I use coyote linux.. Boots off a floppy runs on anything over a 386 with 2 NICs.. http://www.coyotelinux.com/

    But i kind of like Tiny Software's personal Firewall which is free and a lot more configurable than Zone Alarm.. http://www.tinysoftware.com

    But i don't recommend either of these unless you know your networking..
