Yeah. Outpost is nice. But I really like Sygate. As you guys have been discussing, some trials and errors exist in using free firewalls. And possiblity of something getting past the firewall always exists.

BUT if you get Sygate (just get it from download.com), then you'll have no problemo. I've used ZoneAlarm, didn't like it much. Ad/spywares contantly getting through.

Switched to Sygate, no messy GUI, very simple. Install, allow programs to access Internet when asked by Sygate, etc. IMO, it's the best firewall I've used so far. I personally think using Windows Firewall alone isn't enough, but that's just me. After I switched to Sygate, I didn't detect any spy/adware unless I d/l'ed programs that I shouldn't have d/l'ed. (Some freewares that looked cool )

Router firewall's great, too, but for some reason my Internet doesn't work w/ router attached. Gotta work on that.

I used to have adware and spyware issues (even with anti-spyware programs installed), but I switched over to Firefox, added the Adblock plug-in with Filterset.G, and installed SpywareBlaster. Not a single issue in prolly a year or so. SpywareBlaster is great, because it's just a blacklist of bad sites, so it doesn't use any resources. The only thing running in the background is my AV software, and it's not too bad.

A home user dosen't need a fancy firewall. The one built into XP SP2 is perfectly capable of dealing with things the ordinary user will run into. Couple it with a good anti virus (Avast if you want free, Nod32 if you want to pay) and use Firefox then you are all set. If you have a router then you have a hardware firewall, and thats even better.
