I would recommend that uninstall the old and use the latest version of Zone Alarm Free for Personal Use.

There are also other free alternatives such as:
Outpost Firewall Free
Jetico Personal Free
Sygate Personal Firewall Free 5.6
Comodo Free Firewall
Kerio Personal Firewall (available in a full and limited free edition)
Kerio Personal Firewall 2.1.5 (last freeware version that was strictly a firewall and not bundled with extra features that hog resources and slow down system performance) - Alternate download
