Luke, probably this will not satisfy you, but I really recommend using
almost any other personal firewall different than ZoneAlarm - I have no
problems with Kerio Personal Firewall, previously I used Tiny Personal
Firewall (both free of charge for personal use). I also have heard that
BlackIce is a good piece of software. Symantec software requires lots of
system resources :\
So Zonealarm is probably the worst thing to be installed as a personal
firewall, although it is still better than "IP traffic filter" build in
Windows XP.
