The latest ZA v6.5 does seem buggy. Sometimes when I try to uninstall an application through add/remove programs, rundll32 all of a sudden uses up 100% CPU until I kill it. I could not uninstall the application until after I uninstalled ZA.

I really liked sygate till Symantec bought them out, it was free for home users. I think it was the best software firewall out, very small foot print and a awsome traffic log.

You can still download the original Sygate 5.6 here.

I'm using ZoneAlarm pro and it works fine. Granted, I have a gigabyte of ram so I'm not too concerned of running out of ram any time soon, but I could see how you would be concerned if running any less than a gig.

I have a 1GB ram :/. The problem comes if you have Zone alarm Suit. with there anti virus program. It causes memory leak which ends up eating 4mb/min

hmm not sure if they say its the antivirus fix or the firewall fix... The antivirus fix is a memory leak or something like that.
