Lo again
Have got winxp pro, sp1, is the windows firewall sufficient or should I really have zonealarm as well?
Anyone? Thankyou!

I just have Zonealarm and have the windows firewall switched off. I find zonealarm is enough and better than the windows firewall. I think all you need is one good firewall so they do not conflict. Hope this is of some use.

Yes, disable windows own firewall and download Z/A free version you will have greater control of all your programs accessing the net as well as blocking programs that want to.

Also more comprehensive settings, I have Win xp home ed sp1 with Panda Titanium av and the free version of Z/A and they work very well together.
