I hang out in some security forums and have determined by trying most all the others and by other members comments that Outpost is one of the best. LookNstop is another great one. BTW, you have Outpost listed twice (Agnitum)

Zone Labs is the best.
The icon in the sys tray indicating dl & ul bars is very handy, infact it got most of my attention.
