lol. Since when is NOD32 a firewall?

It is a very sweet Antivirus though. I'm currently testing out the 2.70.12 Release Candidate version. It's extremely stable, and fast.

About ZoneAlarm, I was just testing it out and it consistently crashed over and over again when I started up utorrent. According to their forums, it seems to be a common problem amongst other ZA users.

if you want a fully featured software firewall with a very low ram footprint, try Outpost Firewall by agnitum.

Just disable the extra plugins for spyware etc, and ram usage drops very low (around 5MB i think), for both RAM and virtual memory.

I've been using outpost for months, I like it better than Zone Alarm. It didn't get pissed off when I tried enabling ICS

I'm very satisfied with Outpost
