And I was using XP x64 before Win 7, so no Vista problems.
I've always wondered about the configurability of the Win 7 firewall - does it give you the granularity that Agnitum does?
Ultimately we all need to use what works for us!
I don't think I'll ever have the desire to use 3rd party apps anymore, I've been trying to stick with Microsoft software and hardware now.
The Vista/7 Firewall is pretty configurable but it doesn't offer the depth that 3rd party does, its no Bull*** approach really...
The funny thing is that in Advanced Firewall Settings in Vista I could enable Outbound Protection for Domain/Private connections but Public would cut off my internet connection entirely so I left that Disabled. While on 7, Domain/Public are Outbound Enabled but Private is Disabled since THAT will disconnect my internet entirely...
I have notifications Enabled and though I've only come across popups maybe twice in 2 months of using solely MSE 1.0 and Vista/7 Firewall, I've even started using XP SP3 Firewall/MSE only.
***IMO, people hype up 3rd party protection. Just using MSE and XP/Vista/7 Firewall has proven extremely reliable and quick.
