Can anyone recommend free (for personal use) firewall software with
outbound "phone home" protection that is compatible with Avast! av and
Spybot? I used to use Zone Alarm and loved it; then I found it didn't
play nicely with other apps. Or it was user error on my part.

Evidently, the Windows XP firewall from Microsoft only provides
protection from inbound traffic.
