I think this should have been posted in the General Software forum but what the hey!

I personally just use Windows Firewall, but people will probably tell you it's not as secure as Norton or whatever.

Yeah, Comodo. It recieved the highest marks in independant studies and blocks all unloaders and hijackers as well as protecting operating system files and personal files from trojans/malware/spyware and rootkits.



I used it for a long time.

Norton software is often so bad that I wouldn't be surprised if this is one area that Windows Firewall is actually better.

Anywho, Comodo or Kerio Personal Firewall.
