Free Firewall software

hello. I'm new to this group. Ive done a search for the topic at hand, but all topics failed to answers my concerns.

currently, as it stands, my computer lies vulnerable to attacks as i am using no firewall software, with the exception of windows XP firewall. i have read it doesn't offer much protection. i know of two "free" firewall applications, kerio, and zone alarm. i have tried kerio before, however, as i don't have the money to pay for it, and to be quite frank i don't agree with stealing, especially something like a firewall, it didn't really suit my needs. ( i share this connection with other computers.) i have read some bad things about zone-alarm, and that it does not protect very well at all.

i need a good, free firewall solution. buying a hardware firewall, or other pay software is not an option, as i have no spare cash.

if anyone could help, i would be appreciative. thanks.

That's good enough.

It isn't right, they aren't better.

I'm using ZoneAlarm. My (Netgear) router also claims to provide Firewall protection. I assume its just a basic packet filter.

If you should try Sygate Firewall, as Melissa suggested, you might find the following useful:

I have used Sygate for about 4-yrs. now and I find it to be an excellent firewall that has been trouble free. To set it up properly, some knowledge of IPs, protocols, and ports is needed. You can start out using it in its simplest form and add rules as you learn. (as I did) Casey
