    Can anybody recommend a good firewall?

    Kaspersky firewall is too complicated
    Zonealarm pro firewall I feel is not as good and it also slows up browser speed.

    Been in the same position a while back.

    Comodo is great but bombards you with pop-ups. Got tired after a while.
    "Want to allow firefox to execute?" "yes" "Are you sure?" "No, I am stoned and just clicked randomly" GRRRRRRRRRRR

    I have been using Outpost now. So far happy with it. It has it's pop-ups too, but far less than Comodo.

    Or you can check out matousecdotcomSLASHprojectsSLASHfirewall-challengeSLASHresultsdotphp (I am not allowed to post urls) and pick one from their list that is over 80%.

    Apparently, if you can't figure out that you posted that already and we're trying to see WHY.

    N - Nevermind, don't care.

    Stopping running Winblows and you will have less security issues.
    Personally I use Ubuntu.
