Best Software Firewall?
What do you guys think are the best software firewalls?

Sygate, ZoneAlarm, whats the best?

I have Norton on some computers, and Zone Alarm on some other computers. I prefer Norton.

Probably Norton - Zone Alarm is somewhat bad because if you're really in to IRC and what not the script kiddies can execute crap to shut it down on you and be little retards on your comp.

Is the Norton firewall different than Norton Anti-Virus or does it come included?

No it is different, if you buy Norton Internet Security than it comes with anti-virus.

For free ones, I would suggest either Sygate or Kerio, but Norton Personal Firewall seems to have worked the best for me in the past.

sygate bar none.

ZA often has issues with demanding p2p programs.

zonealarm has conflicts with many p2p downloading programs, symantec internet security 2004 is my favorite
