I'm looking for suggestions on a software firewall that is best in these categories in order of importance: 1. Protecting computer 2. Resources used 3. Ease of use and configuring/setup 4. Support (doesn't have to be "personal" - self support is ok) 5. Configurability 6. Price 7. Plays well with other software I know that program XXX may be the best at protecting your computer but may be a memory/resource hog. Program YYY may be easy to use and have great support but doesn't protect very well. I'm currently using ZA free but looking elsewhere because it seems to really slow down my clunker PC and it has very limited configurability. I've been reading these forums and it seems to get the best configurability you need to use a rule based firewall but many people have said that they are hard to set up. I've considered looking at Outpost free/paid, Sygate free (even though when I installed the paid trial several months ago it kept locking everything up on me and I went for a couple days not knowing it wasn't running), Norton personal firewall or NIS (probably both resource hogs) but I'm wide open for suggestions. So taking all these factors into consideration, which would you recommend? Thanks.
