Well it's not the best out there. You could always download and install Comodo, it's free, and turn off the Windows one

i think the majority of people just use windows firewall along with the hardware one in their router.

Secure enough for me at least.

I use Comodo (v2.4; don't like v3.0 as much). Used ZA's firewall for a while, but I didn't like it as much.
