Kerio 2.15 is light on resources and still gives decent protection. click here

R-Firewall has ad-blocking and a few other extras built in click here

Softperfect; click here

There are others if you do a bit of googling

The free version of "Outpost", when I was on Win98, (which was up to a year ago), because I'd had problems with ZoneAlarm. I used Outpost without problem or incident for about 4 years.

I seem to recall, (though as usual I'm open to correction!), that the Forum Editor has spoken highly of this in the past.

Hi, I still run Win 98SE and have used Sygate Personal Firewall for years with no problems.
I did try Zone Alarm but didn't like it.
I think the FREE Sygate (9.6MB)is still available on some sites and I still have the original installation file on CD for future use.
