Until now I have been using ZoneAlarm as my firewall for my PC, but my new

ZoneAlarm isn't available for the 64 bit Vista (and it seems it may never

You are not going to find anything better than the Vista FW and Vista in
itself due to the advanced features the FW and Vista are using.
"If you try to block outbound connections from a computer that’s already
compromised, how can you be sure that the computer is really doing what you
ask? The answer: you can’t. Outbound protection is security theater—it’s a
gimmick that only gives the impression of improving your security without
doing anything that actually does improve your security. This is why
outbound protection didn’t exist in the Windows XP firewall and why it
doesn’t exist in the Windows Vista™ firewall."
You are wrong about the Vista FW/Packet filter. It can stop inbound or outbound traffic, a two way FW/packet filter.
