Welcome to the board Will

The folks over at Cnet (the publisher of Computer Shopper magazine) consistently rate Zone Alarms firewall the best, plus its free.

Welcome willmiller. :D

Before I started using the firewall that came with McAfee, I used the free ZoneAlarms product. It worked great. It learns as you go and can be customized as well.
