Default zone alarm

Does anyone out here use zone alarm as a firewall (free version)? If so, is there a way to test it to see if it works?

I used to use it until I found my copy of Norton. Its pretty good, but I know people who've had bad experiences with it. It seemed to stop what ever came at me.

I used it for a bit, but I like Norton better. Norton seemed to have better tools.

I tried it and thought it was way too intrusive, I use my linksys router and System suite 5.0 now. Seems to work OK. I tried Norton years ago and hated it!! Way too intrusive. But I guess it's all personal preferences
