    Is it any good? everyone is saying it SUCKS bad ass, 2.6 was better, 3.0 takes like 10% system resources, slows xp like crazy, causes many errors, doesnt let internet explorer work sometime, etc etc.

    I was going to buy it as i have a Linksys Router and it supposedly works in combination with it, but if its going to take 64 megs of ram and take 10% resources, then is it really worth it?

    the built in xp filewall is reated as good as software firewalls at keeping hackers out of your box, it doen't howeer moitor your computor accesing the internet, which the software does do.

    One problem I've had with it recently is that it no longer blocks many popup ads. Before, it was perfect but it seems new ads they put out aren't being picked up by ZAP3. Anyone had this problem?
