    There is no "best" firewall, it is a matter of personal preference. I would recomend Sygate.

    I use kerio personal firewall too. I think it's great

    Firewalls are much of a muchness. Just use the one that doesn't stop you from using other apps cause of the resource usage and detract from other stuff you're doing. The idea is for them not only to keep out the bad stuff but also not to interrupt what you're using your PC for with pointless beeps and alerts.
