Feel free to comment why you use that firewall. Additionally, if there is another firewall not on the list!

I use an older version of ZA Free from before Checkpoint bought out Zone Labs.

I do not suggest anyone else do this unless you are very familiar with how ZA works.

I use Windows firewall only but that's my choice as that is all that I need as I have a hardware firewall built into the modem that mys ISP provides.

If I were to use a software firewall I would use Outpost Free:

I use Online Armor (OA) Premium with no incompatibility problems with Avast.  There are many Avast users on the OA forum as well.  I'm a former user of Outpost Pro, but find OA easier, more informative, cleaner to uninstall, and the forum and very friendly like here.

Kerio 2.1.5.

Are most of the people using the Windows firewall,on Vista or Windows 7?
And enabling the 2-way ability?

Sometimes I wonder if i even need a firewall behind a router,but then
i use it mostly for outbound application control.

But,after years of trial and error,i have honed my media players .etc,to only those who will not call out if asked not to.

How much do I want to save 600 K of RAM?

Not enough to give up that little blue shield in the system tray.

Same here.
So far this was the best solution for me.
Computer Systems:

Intel Pentium 4 641 / 2GB RAM / Vista Home Basic SP2 / avast! 5.0 Home / SAS Free / MBAM Free / Windows Defender / Windows Firewall / Spyware Blaster/ Secunia PSI / Firefox 3.6 / Opera 10.5

Core2Duo T8300 / 4GB RAM / Vista Home Premium SP2 (32 bit version) / Same Software.

I use windows firewall because the other firewalls make my computer startup a lot more heavier!
