Outpost free is getting quite old now, so you might do better with
Outpost Pro. Also, you may have trouble if there are remnants of
previous firewalls hanging around on your system, ZA leaves things
behind and I imagine the others do also. Have a look in your hidden
devices and clear out anything in there that might be left over from
other firewalls. I once found part of ZA loaded and running even after
I did a /clean uninstall. Couldn't believe it...
