    Anything is better than Zone Alarm. It bogs down your system and causes a multifold
    of issues. The last ZA version that was working properly and was effective was
    version 4

    Of everything I have used outpost free is what I would use. Run it a
    while and turn of notifications and forget about it. Takes very little
    resources.

    I haven't used any of the newer ones but used one version that they
    didn't support anymore for years.

    Problem with ZA is they are always 'improving' it. Then for me would
    not block stuff or would make my windows not work. If something works
    it doesn't need to be changed.
