    I heard that if you are using free anti-virus, that it is better to use the free Zonealarm firewall then the WinXP firewall.

    Why is that? Is it because the Zonealarm firewall is more configurable or user friendly?

    Can't speak to particular products but firewalls and AV products serve very different functions. Some AV vendors include their own firewall products bundled with their AV products. I quit using Zone Alarm because it was a pain to configure it to allow each particular product to pass through the firewall. I've found the default one with Vista, with the default settings, works fine.

    Kaspersky Internet Security 2011

    Though relatively few of its individual components rise to the top in tests and reviews, experts say Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 provides strong overall protection. Its firewall falls just short of the very best ones…
