Windows 7: Which free firewall?

01 Apr 2013   #11

Windows 10 64bit

If it has to be one of those then I would suggest comodo firewall. There firewall from my experience is the best one but atm I recently went back to use window firewall and mse. Was using comodo Internet security for a while then was with a kaspkrey trial for a while but just went back with mse. Works fine so far with the windows firewall. My pc passes the shields up test with the windows firewall, all you have to do is setup your routers firewall and you past the test. Just had to set up my router not to respond to pings and changed the router from wpa to wpa2.

I would tell you to stay with the built in Windows Firewall, this is more than sufficient for normal "home" traffic.

BUT if you must have a third party firewall I would tell you to use Outpost out of all the free firewalls I have found Outpost is about the easiest to configure and use.

I've never been a big fan of Commodo products, their antivirus will pick up completely legit programs as viruses and trojans and their firewall will nag you to death about incomming and outgoing traffic it can be a real pain in the a$$ sometimes.

Zonealarm Firewall or Comodo firewall? (Free)
Which is better? I remember using comodo in the past and it was too strong. But I hope they fixed that. I also used zonealarm b4 but forgot how it was.

Best free firewall
I heard that if you are using free anti-virus, that it is better to use the free Zonealarm firewall then the WinXP firewall. Why is that? Is it because the Zonealarm firewall is more configurable or user friendly?

Free Firewall?
Are there any good free firewall programs? I don't want to just go googling such a query as I'll most likely get trojan horse malware.
