Are you using a software firewall?

Are you using a software firewall on your personal computer?

Like Windows Firewall, Zone Alarm, Sunbelt…

Just curious if you have a preference on one over another. If you don't use software firewall at home, which one would you recommend to friends/family?

just curious,

Re: Are you using a software firewall?

Software firewalls offer basic defense from outside and inside attacks. In addition, they let you move from network to network. Hardware firewalls provide an additional outer layer of defense that can more effectively hide one or more connected PCs, blocking miscreants via a secure, dedicated platform. All the software firewalls here do a reasonable job of protecting you.
