Has someone used InJoy Firewall ?
Just installed it... and it installs about 4-5 system drivers with program, overriding existing files in windows(XP).
Looks powerfull... but not sure for system stability with it.
I don't like ZoneAlarm, it's too anoying... This is my alternative... for now...

Don't use the SP's firewall.... It is too slow and inefficient.
There is good free firewall, http://www.kerio.com/kpf_download.html .
For first 30 day it works as a full version, but after that it becomes personal version.
But even personal version is better that Win Firewall.
What AV do you have?
Most AntiVirus software comes with firewall in pack...

Data supporting this claim? Slow, inefficient firewall?

Seems like a... well, nevermind.

...try searching on google about Windows Firewall. You'll see how many people have problems with it.
SLOW : It slows down p2p programs, and connection.
INEFFICIENT: Fails at most of the security test

The Windows Firewall was praised when it came out, and there was a reason behind that. I didn't fail any of the tests I ran and it doesn't slow down my p2p programs. Although, I do keep my computer up to date. That might be a reason why some of these people are having problems with it, "what? i have t0 updatz my c0mputah?"

I use Sygate personal firewall and AVG antivirus. They're both pretty good and I don't have any problems with them.
