Programs like ZoneAlarm have served me very well on my old 32-bit PC

you need another one wasting resources and causing connectivity issues?
Simply because Windows Firewall is inadequate for my uses.
I need outbound connections being scanned as well as inbound.

I does scan outbound connections.

Anyway, ZoneAlarm never served you well. And you not noticing, not even
trying to notice them by an audit, shows that you don't have the technical
competence to make such judgements.

First of all, I did run several "audits" on my pc and all of them
claimed that my pc was secure. But anyway, if you believe that personal
firewalls are so horrid, why don't you give me a suggestion as to what
I should be using. I have a hardware firewall built into my router but
it's not very customizable as far as I can see.
