I use win XP home edition and have just rebuild my PC. I now have a option of using Windows firewall or reload ZoneAlarm(free) which is best?

XP firewall is not brilliant but whether ZoneAlarm or one of the other freebies is best, someone else will answer I am sure.

I haven't used software firewalls on any machine for years.

I run Pc tools firewall (free)on a recommendation from the forum on a xp computer .
I did use Zone Alarm but had a slight problem with system restore

To answer your original question - Zone Alarm is much better than Windows XP firewall. Whether Zone Alarm is better than other free firewall programs is a different question.

Windows XP firewall is in coming only.

reload ZoneAlarm.
