What Firewall should I use?

Windows firewall is bad

Zone Alarm wont install any more on my pc

Webroot Desktop Firewall worked nicely expcet when i started up my pc it shows a splash screen that it displayed for about 5 minutes and you cant turn it off.

Mcafee firewall i hate this one and it wont install on my pc any more lol
i hear that their is an avg Firewall?

Yeah so what do you suggest? Im thinking of just going with Webroot.

btw Sorry for starting another Firewall thread :(

Heh yes running a dedicated computer as a firewall is a great idea.

However for someone who wants somethign cheap and simple, just get a router with built in firewall. 50$ solution and it's easy to work with.

However if you want to go far, get a real firewall like a Cisco PIX or Cisco Router running a security enhanced version of IOS.

Re: Firewall
Seriously, the best way is an old computer, it doesnt have to be good, just one that you can install a firewall OS on, I've got one, it's like 100Mhz, 64MB RAM, and a 5GB HDD, I just put the firewall linux on, installed a few network cards, and off I went, works a treat.

Get a Nat router. Best firewall ever. Ths irony is it works because it is stupid.

Re: Firewall
I have no choice but to use windows firewall, to me it's better than most.
