I currently use Microsoft Security Essentials

Comodo Firewall If your just looking for a simple firewall. They do offer full protection for free as well. Comodo Internet Security These are all free and are reliable.

MSE is safe as it is popular due to it being free and a Microsoft product. This means its frequently updated.

If your really looking for extra beef use Comodo it is better but it runs slower and bugs you more about firewall permissions.

PC Tools Firewall has always been free, idk how it has evaluation period on it. Other firewall option would be Online Armor, Comodo, Private Firewall, Tiny Wall, or Windows 7 Firewall Control free.

I dont know how it`s got that either, i liked PC topols one as well i might give Comodo a go later, this evaluation mode seems clunky and taking up space, i am trying to have all programmes run from my 2nd HD and not C drive
