Someone has suggested to me that ZoneAlarm maybe doesn't work with AOL BB. Is there any truth to this and, if so, what firewall is recommended for AOL?

Hi...

I work for AOL, contact 0800 376 4406 for all AOL Broadband enquires, or change to a good ISP.

Note: I am leaving the company for a better job tomorrow lol...

Warning: You may get through to India, if so put the phone down and try again, its a free phone number.

AOL provide Firewall and Antivirus software with BB.

Thanks Jim and Muzzsjm. I got the free trial version of ZoneAlarm in anticipation of getting BB, but if AOL comes with firewall it looks like I won't need it.
