    Comodo

    Just installed it recently after I decided that Sygate is getting a bit long in the tooth and I'm not going to touch the new version now that Symantec has got hold of it.

    I'm very impressed so far and the reviews back up what I'm experiencing.

    Black Ice performed terribly in the testing done by www.matousec.com, which is the best firewall testing site I have seen. Also, Steve Gibson (ShieldsUP) caught them blatantly skirting his testing software without actually fixing the underlying security flaw. That's disturbing whether or not you agree with Gibson on the whole.
    My vote goes to Comodo because Kaspersky, the best performer at Matousec, is only available as part of their $70 security package whereas as Comodo offers the full, unhandicapped version of their firewall for free.

    If you're looking for free software, then go with Sygate.

    If you don't mind going out and buying some software then I suggest you go do that, although just because it costs money doesn't necessarily mean it will be "better".

    Although sygate is still around there are no updates for it and the sygate company was taken over by norton.

    Comodo FTW! They just released the new 3.0 version which I think it very nice, although I turned off that defense+ feature cause it got annoying
