[color=black]Hey...[/color] [color=black]Firewalls.[/color] [color=black]Which one, in your opinion, is the best?[/color] [color=black]Nortons, McAfee, Sygate, Zone Alarm, Checkpoint, Microsoft, Tiny Personal, NetWatcher, ConSeal, a different one? [/color][color=black]Or do you use something else entirely to keep out the worms and dirty little hacks?[/color] [color=black]Cheers... ADDITION: Say something about what you use. Don't just say "Zonealarm", as that's useless. [/color]

You should amend the title of this to "Which software firewall..." I also make use of hardware. I'll turn on whatever the OS has integrated into it, but I won't rely on it. The best, IMO, is one running off a LiveCD on a box with no hard drive, behind a router whose firewall is enabled.

I use a combination of Hardware, and Software. Two Firewalls are better than one. :D

I don't trust any firewall, hardware, or software, enough to use it as my sole source of security.

I use Microsoft SP2. Surprisingly I've never had problems with it, but as soon as it lets something major through I'll get another one. I tried Zonealarm but got sick of it not learning what I wanted to let through (kept asking each time, very annoying).
