Windows 7: Good firewall program?

Thus far the Built in firewall and my router firewall seem to be doing all that's needed to keep me safe from any threats. If the need ever came up for a 3rd Party solution though i keep a copy of Outpost Firewall Pro handy.

)))) kinda old, but still funny)btw, does it run on 32bit?
The old ones are the best, especially when they're still applicable. Yes, while the solution is entirely 64-bit ready, it also provides support for the laggards still using 32-bit technology.
glad to hear that...
