    What is the most efficiant Firewall Program?

    I am currently using Norton Internet Security 2004 with 5 active services in the background.

    CCAPP.EXE uses anywhere between 18,000 - 30,000K Memory and the SNDSrvc.exe 4,100K.

    I usually play games while I download so I am looking for software that is light on system resources.

    Thankyou.

    zone alarm pro with the zlclient and vsmon are using 10436k right now. If you are using norton antivirus, the ccapp is still going to be there no matter what firewall.

    Do I really need Norton AV installed, won't NIS notify me if there is a virus and then I can temporarily install AV to remove it?
