I use Zone Alaram Basci version and very happy with it. Any idea on how Outpost compared to Zone Alarm?

For paid-for versions, Outpost is the best firewall by far...

However, I haven't tried this free version yet, but given that I like it, I will give it a chance in a spare machine I use for tests.

first time i used zone alarm but it couldn't satisfy me. i started to try every security solution and than i found outpost.
its really impressive.when you start yo use it, you can see and feel the difference.

and

you are right guys.You couldn't compared outpost to zone alarm
because outpost is the best.

but I don wanna fillup my computer with crapware. I use Windows Vista, so i've a far better firewall.

I hope you don't mean the firewall that comes with Vista, because that's a festering piece of donkey droppings - it's so crappy, pretty much *any* firewall is better!

You can see that Outpost (even the free version) is one of the best here:

You can also find the Vista/Win7 firewall in that test - look at the very bottom of the list where it says "Windows Live OneCare", that's the Vista/Win7 firewall wrapped up in a nice package so it can also be installed on XP. 5% (out of 100) is a really catastrophic result.

You need to know what the test is focusing on. This is a bogus test for Windows Firewall which does work just fine. Especially with security stuff you should be careful forming fixed opinions directly from reviews/"tests". Very muddy area.

How many processes does it have running?

If it's more than one, that's not good!!

I have used the free version of this before and found it to be a very effective firewall.

I'll stick with my old, single running process, Kerio, until further notice.
