Firewalls and Internet Connection Sharing

Does anyone know of a free Firewall that does not destroy ICS settings?

I have just spent the whole of Saturday repairing the damage done to a friends network by ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm.

The free version of ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm wipes out peoples ICS settings without warning!

Uninstalling ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm does not repair the damage!

After the damage is done you search the web and find it is a well known problem but still ZoneLabs do not bother to include a warning in the ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm set up program.

Given ZoneLabs irresponsible attitude on this I do not think they are a company that can be trusted so I will be warning all my contacts away from all ZoneLabs products - who wants security products from an irresponsible company?

I have had no problems with ZA and ICS. From memory when you install ZA there is a check box to specify that the PC use ICS.
