    Out of these three FW's which one will be your pick, also which one would be the less on system resources. I've heard that LookNStop is very light on resources also this prog is a very small footprint.

    Look 'n' Stop for least resources, and Comodo for overall choice.

    When Comodo was tried here it was found to slow the test computer down quite a noticable bit. On the same computer LooknStop seemed to not even be using resources at all it seemed so light.

    Weird, for me comodo's 2 processes uses around 18MB. That's a lot compared to the new alpha which uses around 5MB!!! Who knew double the features would result in less than half the memory.

    Well i say Comodo all around and LooknStop even though i never used it ill just agree with you guys.

    Comodo would be my pick.
    LookNStop is lighter.

    Having used all three (and then some) I can say Comodo was pretty good but slowed down my system a bit. ZoneAlarm, I just did not like maybe it was the lousy GUI or the calling home thing(or both) but never again. Look N Stop is a very good firewall,light,stable,and just a firewall.if you want to pass leaktests I suggest a HIPS program or a firewall w/HIPS. For me it's back to LNS and if I get the itch to try something else again I probably will but I know I'll go back to LNS when i'm done.
