There are no 'Cons', that I know of at least, to third party firewalls... just 'Pros', like several are free.
Take a look at these; http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/
, and http://www.zonealarm.com/store/content/cat.../comparison.jsp
<-- if you want to go with this one make sure it's the free one.I DO NOT,
under any circumstances, recommend the 15 day free trial version of ZoneAlarm PRO to anybody, as I, personally, have had one BAD, BAD, BAD... system devastating experience with that.
That is, however, no reflection on their free firewall, which I think is grate and am using as we speak.
