Swiss-fucking-com finally upgraded the phone switch near my house, which means that I can get ADSL at home :)

What do you guys recommend for a firewall ? Everybody refers me to ZoneAlarm, are there any other good (and free/cheap) ones out there ?

I use McAfee which seems to be OK, but what do I know.

ZoneAlarm is the only one I have experience with. It works, it's free, no reason to change.

You don't need a firewall, trust us.

Download Zone Alarm Pro with edonkey.

The link above seems to have a selection. by sheer coincidence I just came across it.

Great. Download some hacked software to use as your firewall. Worms included at no extra cost.

I use blackice. It's a bit of scaremonger warning you about port hacks where you HAVENT got a service running.. ie FTP on your PC. Also I'm having some problems actually trying to run it on my pc at the mo (xp home). oh yes and it doesnt give you the port no the hacker is attempting to gain access to. other than that it's good.

it's also worth getting a spyware detector/cleaner, such as Ad-aware or The Cleaner

I like ZoneAlarm. The new interface is too complex, but in the end it blocks the ports you don't use, and even checks the MD5sum of the executable that wants to have access.
