What firewall program would you recommend?

You'll get many different answers here, I used to go for ZoneAlarm all the time, but i had some problems when I first moved to Vista, so I dumped ZA and now use the Vista firewall which when combined with the firewall in my router provides all the protection I need.

I installed ZA on my sisters PC when I built it for her and it was nothing but trouble, she kept being locked out of the internet, I don't know what was happening, as she lives about 10 miles from me so I would have to keep driving round to her house to see what the problem was, and usually ZA had disallowed Internet Explorer from connecting. Without installing key loggers & cameras to see what she was doing to the PC there was no way of isolating the fault, so I removed ZA and activated XP's firewall, I've had no reports of problems since then...
