My preference is for Sygate as it is "quiet" and seems less resource hungry than ZA.

Many folks here use one or the other & seem to like them. 'Sygate or Zone Alarm' - click here to read recent discussion here.

PS - Just don't have both running at the same time as that can cause conflicts & unnecessary problems.

For what it's worth, I use a firewill simply to tell me what on my machine is trying to connect to the internet and where is is going to.
