right now i'm using nvidia fw (i like it because it's on my icon place on the bottom right screen and i can just right click on it to change settings)

whatever you do, just don't use xp firewall, it's annoying as hell

I agree DiabloII,windows firewall is very annoying and also a little limited.I personaly like the source and destination IP's in the detials veiw for Sygate PF,also the packet dump is pretty kwel

I know WIndows Firewall is garbage, and annoying, I have had it coming up to block stuff even when I disabled it...

I'm usinf EZ Firewall from Computer Associates...it's a ZoneAlarm clone. It resides in my system tray. Just click it and restore the control center and you're in business.
