They all have goods and bads, advantages and disadvantages. I use
ZoneAlarm Internet Security. It seems about as good as any.
A feature/bug of it is that is is constantly asking for permission for
things to run. Like Windows Vista itself does, only different. I
consider this a plus, but if you hate interruptions, you will not like
the highest security mode of ZoneAlarm Antivirus. This is in manual
mode; there is a more automatic mode that attempts to make the decisions
I endorse the free firewall software by ZoneAlarm, and recommend that
you consider the full security suite.
