    well i HATE norton (who doesnt?), and i like zone alarm but it keeps disconnecting me from aim whenever i get the first message/reply from a friend, AND ONLY THE FIRST REPLY, so i was wondering what yall other than those 2 think is the best firewall.

    Black Ice is supposed to be good, but it's for more experienced PC users. Lots of things to tweak and such.

    I had it, it confused me, so I'm sticking with Zone Alarm.

    Im testing Steelsecurity at the moment. It comes from a very reliable company and is designed for the modern day gamer. Otherwise ive been using ZA pro and it does it's job well.

    take a look at my free list pinned above. my favorite was Sygate, but Symantec bought them out, so its not free anymore. I could get you the last free version, theres no updates for it anymore, but it was good and still is.

    If youre willing to pay in a little, ETrust Security Suite is awesome. Anti-Virus, Anti-spyware, Anti-Spam, and Firewall all in one.

    I heard Zone Alarm spies on the user, if it's been paid for,that is.

    Windows Firewall is the best. I just use it.

    Yeh Outpost is pretty good. I used it for a while, but then I finally settled on Zone Alarm
