It's gotta be Kerio. I used to use ZoneAlarm but I just didn't like it. The Built In Windows Firewall is nothing more than a Joke IMO.

I use a product called Freedom Internet Security & Privacy. It is supplied to Bell Sympatico customers, so I get it for free. Heres the website:

http://www.freedom.net/

It's pretty good actually. It beat McAfee, and Norton because I had them at some time.

I use my netgear router :yes:


Yeah, my D-Link router is sufficient. Many people that use software firewalls don't even need the incoming protection that they provide because of their routers. The only real advantage to a software firewall if you have a good router is controlling outgoing connections or if your router is set to DMZ/Port Forward.
