I stumbled upon Comodo a couple of days ago when I was browsing for a Vista firewall - it's not compatible with Vista... I ended up installing PC Tools Firewall Plus - a free, Vista-compatible firewall that seems to do a nice job (and comes with excellent configuration options).

I started to use that firewall after i ditched the nortan internet security suite. Got sick of waiting for Nortan to load up everytime i wanted to use my XP box.

Interesting. I used Comodo last year for a time on a W2K box.
They've thinned the app out a bit. The download then was about
16mb, the same as Zone Alarm (then). Now it's down to under
8 mb's. It reminded me a lot of Zone Alarm. Not anymore though;
Zone Alarm is downright fat. Almost a 39mb download now.

Well, I am no expert here. But I have used a lot of different firewalls and the one which I liked the best was SUNBELT KERIO PERSONAL FIREWALL.
I use this as it is fully compatible with Windows XP (can't say about vista). Does a good job of not only monitoring the ongoiing network activity but also stops unwanted autoruns which often come with a virus from a friend's USB or CD.
Works as a charm, is light on system and also acts as a bandwidth monitor. SO I can know which program is takuing up my precious bandwidth in downloading an unwanted automatic update which I like to do afterwards. I am not sure if it will work with vista or not. It is better to go to their site and check.

I've been using it for a few months now, seems to be working okay, I haven't run into any bugs (WinXP machine), very detailed, quite a few options, and easy to learn.
