Need New Firewall for Win ME.

I've been using ZoneAlarm for quite some time already. I think it has been one of the best firewalls I've used so far. One day, I had to reformat my computer so I had to reinstall ZoneAlarm, except by this time, they had released a brand-new version. Unfortunately, the newest version of the ZoneAlarm firewall no longer supports Windows ME users. When I did have the firewall running, my computer had problems shutting down and restarting so I uninstalled ZoneAlarm. Because I am not familiar with any other good firewalls, I decided to give it one last chance and tried installing it again. It won't install. Some error gets in the way, and I have given up.

I need a new firewall, preferably freeware. It MUST support Windows ME. (I do not want to upgrade my OS for the time being.)
Anyone have any ideas?

I've already looked at all the firewalls on download.com but I have no idea which firewall is safe and reliable.

Thanks for any input.

I use Zone Alarm Pro on WinME. I've heard it can sometimes cause lag on online games, but I've never had any problems with it. Highly recommended!

Just added the latest Free Zone Alarm to a WinME machine the other day without an issues.

Maybe you have some other problem or are short on RAM.
