I maintain a small network of about 10 computers.  We have not had any laptops connected to the domain to this point.  We just purchased a laptop which will be connected to the domain and used in the field.  I was going to install our symatec antivirus client and spysweeper, but was not sure what to do for a firewall.  I was wondering if the free version of Zone Alarm would be sufficient.  The only problem I have with Zone Alarm is that the pop ups become annoying.  Is there something else that is better?  Thanks for your help.
