Having used the latest ZA Free Firewall version I was quite pleased as it ran well and didn't seem to slow down my system. I was just wondering though, if the promises made on the Ashampoo website about their Free Firewall was true. If so it would mean it is more informative than ZA Free, even lighter on the system, and give the user more control. So is Ashampoo better than ZA Free at this point? The reviews on Download.com were mixed, but it did get a very high rating.
