    ZoneAlarm makes it easy.


    Unlike other personal firewalls, ZoneAlarm protects automatically from the moment it's installed - no programming required. ZoneAlarm barricades your PC with immediate and complete port blocking. And, then runs in Stealth Mode to make your PC invisible on the Internet - if you can't be seen, you can't be attacked.

    ZoneAlarm delivers simplicity without compromising your security. A getting started tutorial explains controls and alerts to get you up and running quickly. And, to keep you confident that you're always protected, intuitive color-coded alerts rate security risks - in real time.

    some people love some people hate za...I think it's probably the most user friendly if it doens't give issues on your box

    big footprint from what I remember though

    since a firewall is always running, AND is implemented in IRQL 2 code, (above all thread priorities), the resource footpring is a bigger issue then apps that idle and don't run at high priority.

    I think it's nice of them to offer a free version. I know it does not have power features, I think for free it maybe the best alternative to payed for.

    I think the free kerio blows it's doors off...though it isn't nearly as easy to use...they both have assets and liabilities
