    id say Comodo is better since it doesnt lack any features. ZA free, OTOH, is limited compared to the paid version.

    I havent tried ZA in years, but Comodo is very good with games and p2p. Its also good against leaktests.

    Hi Antus,
    I will have to agree with "WSFuser"
    Comodo will give you more filtering options and more protection than the ZA "free version". You mention "AMD_64", yes the processor is 64 bit, but what is your O.S. Is this 64 bit?

    Comodo is a lot stronger then the free version of zone alarm since the pay for version of zone alarm has 2 more layers of security when the free version has only one.

    Hi Antus,
    I would say, from your choice, to go with Comodo.
    ZA free options have gone less and less over the years, and now it is just an application firewall, and the fact it allows its own apps internet access without notice/logging as always bugged me. So go for Comodo.

    As for the 64 bit. You need to check your O.S. I think (but could be wrong) there are 5 different types of "XP media Center",.... you are probably running the 32 bit version.
