Can I get a decent Firewall for Vista ?

Not impressed with the MS Firewall in Vista, so I'm looking for something better.

Understand ZoneAlarm is not Vista compatible yet, so are tere any decent firewalls out there that I should be using instead?

There is the one built into the windows live onecare anti-virus which is supposed to be good, there is Norton personal firewall 2007 which is fully vista compatible. I don't know any more at this moment I'm afraid.

Since upgrading to Vista i have not installed a software firewall,and to date no problems....Touchwood!

The Vista firewall seems to be doing its job for me.

There is a Beta version from Zonealarm,personally i do not think its worth the risk of possibly upsetting your system click here

The Vista firewall is absolutely fine.
