I installed sygate last night. I normally am forced to install a firewall eventually due to torrenting. After torrenting for X ammount of months your IP ends up on a lot of different tracekers, so even when my client is shut down i keep getting seed request. Eventually ur on enough that you start getting hit often, or like last night i had a bunch of request coming in at once which jumped my ping up high. I went with sygate becasue of what it is. It's purely a connection monitor. Monitors incoming\\outgoing connections and asks me to allow or disallow. Basically no resources used, and it's completly invasive. No bells, no whistles, just "checkpoint" for ip traffic to flow through.
