i think zone alarm is a good firewall..although there are planty of good firewalls out there. you could also checkout F-Secure , it is a very good firewall also.

zone alarm is fine. I've just had a lot of problems with it so I haven't used it in a while.

i have tested f-secure's internet security 2007 beta version and it seems to work pretty good. i will be deploying their enterprise suite next week in our network environment and will have a better grasp of how well they hand security

F-secure, I think I'm gonna have to check the one out. Seems alot of people like it. Though the free software I have used in replace of Zone Alarms seems to be alot better, and made my PC alot healthyer.

Zone alarm is good, but I have no need for it since I have a router with a firewall. I did use it before I had that and it was great, never gave me any issues. I haven't tried F-Secure yet but I've read good reviews about their stuff so I'd give that a shot.

I use Zonealarm, it's pretty good, and it's free so you can't argue with that.
