It's a tad subjective to state that Sygate/ZA are the best of the best.

There are a number of Firewall links in this thread for you to choose which one you want - both free ones and ones that require payment.

I guess you can get as many replyes as it is programs out there, but a good firewall would stop the one hacking you, also make shure you have been scanning your computer online for viruses/worms, you can also make shure you have the latest updates from microsoft for your OS.. me self using mcafee firewall, but i guess that everyone have there own favorites, a good one are also Outpost firewall..


if ($me != tired) { return } | else { echo -a Get a pot of coffee now $+($me,.) }

The easiest way is to stop accepting files now a days viruses are in zip file when you open that zip the virus enters in your computer Keyloger is dangerous trojan when it gets in your computer the guy who send the Keyloger can operate your computer he can do wha ever he want so the best idea would be stop accepting files and use the latest version of mIRC.
Thanks

my favorite firewall is Agnitum Outpost Pro (it costs money, but there is a free version). It allows total control of your connection.
