im not sure what your question is but i'll try to respond as best i can.

if you mean which firewall is best, it's definetely zonealarm. not only is it free but on those port test sites(i forget the address) zonealarm was the only one of these firewalls that came out perfect. no leaks, whatsoever. the free firewall does not have the most options but it is very user friendly and is the best on the market.

Yep......I've tried about 5 or 6 different ones and Zone Alarm is my choice too.

Yeppers, Zone Alarm gets my vote. It's also Cnet's pick of the litter.

ZA seems not only to be the best but also the one that causes the fewest headaches. Unlike other 'free' programs it is fully functional and may not certain features but it definately gets the job done.
