ZoneAlarm System Hog

i use zonealarm's free firewall, and it seems to be hogging system resources. Can anyone reccomend other free firewalls that offer the same level of protection?

Thanks in advance

What OS are you using?

Vista's firewall is good enough for most people's uses.

Last time I used Zone Alarm on XP it was very well behaved, using little resources.

I did try an early build on Vista and it was a real pain.

Have you got the latest version?

ziclient.exe = 6,1660K

TrueImageMonitor = 5,988K

this is what mine uses, but 16megs out of 1000 isn't really a lot...
