Been using Zone Alarm on my XP and have had no problems. I did some research on the Zone Alarm site to download the free version for my Vista Home Premium system and from what I read the version for Vista is still in the Beta and only recommended to users who are tech savvy (definitely not moi!). Would love some suggestions for a Vista compatible Firewall (will pay if I have to) or is the new Vista Firewall good enough protection? Would appreciate your opinions. Thank you.

The Vista firewall seems very adequate so far. It's all I'm using and have had no issues with it to date. It's a lot more effective than the XP firewall and is far more configurable.
