Zone Alarm is probably the most user-friendly free firewall.

zonelabs.com I think.

Norton Personal Firewall rulez, even I could manage it, and it's free. I'm not sure about how good it is though... noone's been on my computer (yet)...

Perhaps I am missing something, but since when is Norton Personal Firewallfree. If it is free where can you get it free from? Here is a link to their site: http://www.symantec.com/sabu/nis/npf/
I don't see anything regarding free, just the "Buy Now!" button.

Either my bro got an earlier version (or sth of the sort) or he cracked it (highly unlikely). For sure I didn't pay for it... sorry for the false info then. ( )

ZA is crap in my opinion...the free version crashes some games, its a bug that they never fixed. I use Sygate Personal Firewall, its user-friendly and secure, as i had no leaks when i tested it with http://www.pcflank.com/ .

I'd use Zone Alarm Pro ... But their technical support is bullshit, so dont even think about getting help .

Zone Alarm Pro is great but

1.) its not free and
2.) maybe its only me but it always crashes my computer when i start up with the network cables connected
