Windows 7: What is the best Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit free firewall?

As mentioned by the guys for 3rd party firewalls Comodo / Online Armor free are okay. But you have NAT Router so you can use the built-in Windows firewall. Personally I'd choose Comodo

Wow, damn-it! I have PCTools Firewall v7 & it decided to !@#&* my connection after I installed FFox. So, do I re-install / repair PCTools OR goto 7's firewall? Like Tool's interface on see'n what's going on with in / outbound but want something that WILL play well with others...? Am currently "building" my Win 7 / digging myself out of the stone-age due to necessity.

No idea about that particular on, never used it, but in general, the most important aspect in any firewall is the rule's configuration. You probably need to add a rule (or let it to "learn" if it can) to allow Firefox to connect to internet.

Thanks Alejandro85, tried TinyWall 2.1.4 and would NOT unpack / install. Said there were errors / issues with the msi package file, hhhmmm. I know the TinyWall "learns" so that's kewl but I wonder if 7's wall does too?

Remember that TinyWall is NOT a firewall!
It's just a "nicer" control panel for the built-in Windows Firewall, that supposedly helps you controlling it, but don't have a firewall engine by itself. Just because of it, I don't see too much reason to ever use it, just stick to the Win7 one in that case.

Hi Alejandro85.

Well Tiny bought the farm after install issues & then 7 shut it down after it started having a case of the stupids. Good idea but disfuctional on my system, conclusion, deleted (oh and does NOT come with a uninstaller AND 7's Programs and Features could not uninstall / had issues) with Revo. Done. Now am using PCTools v7 after I found malware screwing up Win7's firewall, so removed malware with Windows bug finder & 7's wall works NO PROBLEM (used some of Brinks tutorials short-cut, enable/disable, add to list, etc). But I like PCTools 7, does in / out. Problem(s) solved.
