    My i6000 came with McAfee, so I used it for 3 months (free subscription). Since then I am using zone alarm. I am just wondering what do people think about the firewalls that are currently available.

    I use Sygate and am happy with with. But i cant really compare it to anything b/c i havent used any others xcept the one that comes with XP. Although i think they have been acquired by Symantec (sp?) so somethings might have changed. Another I heard good things about and you might want to add to the list is Kerio

    I used to use Norton but switched to Zonealarm two years ago and haven't found a reason to switch.

    I've used Norton and McAfee, but switched to pc-cillin earlier this year. To me, norton used a ton amount of resources, but was user friendly. Its been a few years since I used McAfee, but I've never been a fan of McAfee.

    When not behind my router I use Tiny Firewall. Its an extremely effective and memory effective firewall that I can honestly recommend to anyway. Not very expensive either!

    Mcafee/and Windows are my prime firewalls. SG- really try mcafee again, it is so good. But i get Firewall, Security Center/ and Privacy for free since im with comcast. " A $114 Dollar Value, Free from comcast"! lol, ;)

    I've been using ZoneAlarm free for a few years, and finally went ahead and bought the Pro version couple of weeks ago
    (I went on a shopping spree when I got my TB :cool: )

    I've only used ZoneAlarm, and I'm pretty satisfied with it.
