Windows 7: Compatible firewall for Kaspersky

Compatible firewall for Kaspersky

I just updated from Kaspersky AV 2010 to Kaspersky 2013. The update said that the Comodo firewall I was using conflicted with 2013. So now I'm using the Windows 7 firewall.
Is the Windows 7 firewall adequate or can someone recommend another one?

Thanks,
JohnTysz

I really believe honestly in truth you will be fine, just keep the antivirus up and firewall on. Kasperksy should have its own firewall settings, use those they should work best. Anyhow i truly believe you will be ok with windows firewall, and or kasperksy's.

Welcome to Seven Forums Johntysz. I know people like Kaspersky, but it doesn't play nice with almost anything. Look at the list for 2012 (none found for 2013):

List of applications incompatible with Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012

It just basically wants to be in charge. Just the Comodo firewall may well work, but anything else (Defense+, Internet security, etc.) Likely will either not play nice, or will be removed on installation of 2013. Many here use the Windows Firewall, and the Windows 7 Firewall Control Free, and seem happy with it. A Guy

Thanks for the advice. I'll stay with Windows 7 firewall. Kaspersky does seem to be finicky.

Thanks again!

A while back I had Kaspersky and it did a great job protecting my computers. The problem I had with it was along with protecting my computers it wanted to rule rule my computers. I had to keep changing setting and relearning it to get any thing done. PITA. It's gone and I use MSE and the Windows 7 built in Firewall with no problems.
