Default I need a good firewall

Zone Alarm stopped giving updates for my OS. So until I get a router, I'll need something to replace it. A trial version will do, but I'd prefer something free like ZA if anyone knows of one.

Ah, thanks!

I already tried about 5 others, and I had to uninstall most of them in safe mode.
