I have used MS Vista Firewall for several months and I find it runs suffiecently no problems at all to date.

I use vista firewall and it's fine. Comodo do a Vista compliant free firewall but if you are like me and use a router there will be a built in hardware firewall as well.

As long as you have good anti virus and anti spyware it is fine.
I just use vistas firewall . If you have a router or router/modem combo that will have its own built in firewall.
Zonealarm slows pc start up time and uses a lot of resources.
Jetico is free for vista but after a time limit the more advanced features are disabled.
