Windows 7: Sphinx Windows 7 Firewall Control

All of these issues can be resolved if a user would take the time to educate themselves on the proper way to secure their system ... most wont bother because they can't be "bothered". Software developers are aware this and develop (generally) shoddy and, sometimes, risky programs. Windows Firewall Control will allow you to create outbound connection rules quite easily... This is just my opinion .... feel free to disagree...

I will read this. I take it that you believe more in securing inbound and therefore outbound protection is really not so important. Right? I am aware that all third party firewalls recommend that you use outbound protection and that theirs is best. I also believe Microsoft is, for the most part, a good product. I keep it patched and have never had any problems. I just like to get info from all sides. ( without the MS sucks or Apple sucks opinions) Thanks,
John

That's what I forgot -- Apple sucks. Seriously, inbound is most important. Outbound is important if you do not scrutinize the processes running on your machine on a regular basis like many of us here are guilty of

It's more than opinion, it's a fact. WFC plus is worth the money. If people would like to use the Seven inbuilt outbound control but are reluctant to do so because of rule creation, then install WFC for the trial period and allow it to make the rules for you. Use that info for the inbuilt firewall outbound.
