Hi guys. Have installed xp pro with sp2, which fire wall should I use, windows own or zone alarm or can I run them both at the same time. Thanks

ZA on its own.

ZA by itself as others have said.

The windows firewall is an ok solution but it only offers inbound protection, ZA has both and is free to boot.

I’ve been led to believe installing ZoneAlarm automatically disables the one in XP. I’ve not tested that as I’ve always turned it off first.

Zone Alarm, switch off the windows one!

Yep install ZA and it will autmatically switch Windows own firewall off.
