Question Firewall

Is it worth it to run a firewall sush as Zone Alarm in addition to the XP Firewall or is this overkill. I am berhind a router as well as on wireless.

Do bothe firewalls serve the same purpose and is it foolish to relly on the Microsuck firewall? I am aware that the ZA is very good at what it does but have had an issue w/ ZA products in the past.

TIA,
Bryan

XP Firewall does nothing. Its leak rate is like 99.9%. I believe zone alarm had like a 2% leak rate
