which would YOU use?

the Vista firewall, and have been doing so since Vista first launched - I've experienced no problems whatsoever.

Like the Forum Editor, I simply use Vista. It is much better than the old XP firewall.

ZA

i lost faith in zone alarm after it was found phoning home to 4 different servers click here this now seems to have been resolved click here
i have stopped using a software firewall as i find them hard to get along with, but make sure you have a good malware blocker detector to stop any nasties getting in in the first place. i dont personally think it makes much difference if windows firewall is on or off as they both fail every third party test available, and vista firewall IS xp firewall by default. click here
