    I am using Ashampoo Firewall Free with Windows 2000 Pro. I does the trick and does not eat resouces. Its eating around 8 MB RAM now
    The real and only freedom is Public Domain. Everything else in unfree! Even those who claim to be the self styled evangelists of freedom are not free because freedom cannot be forced by any means!

    @Choto Cheeta, read the post request - he is asking for free personal firewall. KIS is not free...

    I like both Kerio and ZoneAlarm because they are easy to use... ZA is easier, but Kerio gives more flexibility...

    Yeah... SP2's firewall is really user-friendly. You can either set it to on or off ... User-friendly Its light.... but isn't customisable to say the least...

    if you've Windows XP SP2, then ONLY go for ZA Free & make sure you've enuf RAM (ZA7 takes 25MB+ RAM), or try to get older version of ZA Free (v6.5... was lighter).

    Ashmapoo is extra lite on resorces..

    I am using this piece (Ashampoo firewall) for six months and still found no reason to uninstall it

    Yeah Comodo is the best firewall...but its tricky to set port forwarding for certain apps.
    Zonealarm free is second to comodo.

    Dont use XP built in firewall..its a kind advice
