I currently have the free version of Zone Alarm installed. It gives me problems I can do without. I cannot load a few sites including, ironically, Zone Labs. I have uninstalled ZA and had no problem loading the sites that were previously impossible to get to. Once ZA is reninstalled the same problems arise despite my having them listed as safe zones in ZA. Needless to say this pisses me off. I'm curious to know what is the "next best" firewall as ZA invariably gets the top vote. Also, is BOClean an alternative and better solution than a firewall?
