What is a good firewall program?

by SyscoKid In reply to What is a good firewall p ...

I would recommend ZoneAlarm (www.zonealarm.com) to anyone. It's free for home use.

It requires almost no configuration. Just install it and run it. As programs try to access the Internet from your computer, it asks if you want to allow this; further, it asks if you want to allow this every time or just this time. Then it remembers your answer.

It also blocks ALL access to your computer from outside sources, and keeps a log of attempts, along with IP addresses. This does NOT block your use of file sharing software like Kazaa or Bearshare.

otherwise there won't be a free version for the next person. :)
