I've been using ZoneAlarm and it does work well as long as you have enough
system resources.

I'm in the process of preparing for DSL service from Ma Bell. Hook up date
May 23rd and I'm going to download ZoneAlarm as my firewall. Couple of
advantages to it, 1) it's free (big plus), 2) it works well according to
folks I
know who use it. I'm leery of attachments even from people I know due to the
some worms and viruses appear to be from someone you know but actually have
invaded their address book. Norton seems to catch them all at this time. I
reading email last night when Norton went to their site and updated itself,
like that.
