What in the members opinion, is the best free download Firewall?

Some months ago I bought and installed the latest McAfee Security Suite. It created more problems than it solved. I have removed it from the PC.
Currently, I have Spyware Blaster, and NoAdware installed.
I do have an old copy of AVG on disc. But, even it seemed to miss a few viruses.

ZoneAlarm is the Arnold Schwarzenegger of firewalls click here

This is probably as good as any although I have not used it. I have used McAfee for 4 yrs with no probs!

I use most of the recommended freebies and payware, but it was the MS Antispyware which threw up a trojan all the others missed! Seems there is no one program which will work 100% all the time. What I mean is it's possible to unwittingly download a virus/trojan and there it sits until you do your next scan. MS AS kicks in once a day for me and I do a complete scan with all the others weekly. One trojan in 4 ys is not too bad.

Dan the Doctus we are talking Firewalls not anti virus programs.

I have Zonealarm (firewall), AVG Anti virus, Adaware, Spybot and Sypwareblaster all free and all running on my computer.

Kerio free will be available up to Dec 2005 and supported for 12 months after. I think it's the best freebie and even after the development expires, it'll be some time before most of its competitors get to be as good. click here

Sygate Free is really good and easy to setup and also very stable. click here

pj123, the new avg is anti-virus complete with built in firewall.

"the new avg is anti-virus complete with built in firewall."

But not FREE as in the original request for information.

Thank you all for your contributions.
Looks like it is ZoneAlarm. Sygate, and Kerio so far.

Kerio discontinue after DEcember

ZA or sygate are the best free ones.
