Default Firewall

Hey guys, my computer gets messed up after i install the ZONE ALARMS firewall.

So now i have:

Microsoft ANTIspyware
spywall (demo)
spybot search and destroy
windows firewall...duh
a nvidia firewall thing
A built in to my mobo firewall
And a fire wall by ZJK build on my router.

Is that safe enough.?

Can you recomend any good firewalls?

Using more than one firewall screws things up. Disable all of them except the one built into your router.

Well, as far as my experience tells me, Zone Alarm is one of the best.

Since my new computer does not recognize it, what other good one are there?

I'm going to keep these on for the time being:

Microsoft ANTIspyware Yes
spywall (demo) No
spybot search and destroy No
windows firewall...duh Yes
a nvidia firewall thing Yes
A built in to my mobo firewall Obviosly yes...
And a fire wall by ZJK build on my router. Yes, caz i can't turn it off...

What other good kinds are there?
