    Windows Firewall


    Hi.

    I've been reading a lot of articles about the shortfalls of windows firewall and how it more or less lets everything in. I myself have never seen a warning from the windows firewall but then again maybe i never encountered anything very malicious. So im wondering if i should install a third-party firewall and if yes which one?

    :)

  2. Best free AV and firewall

    Can Windows Firewall block outgoing connections yet? If not, it's one step above useless.

    Look into Online Armor for a free firewall.

  4. Windows Firewall

    Good Antivirus + Firewall

    I would never put anything Norton on my computer.

    Nod32 is arguably the best antivirus. AVG is likely not as good, but it's free and at least pretty good.

    Firewalls, I'd put Comodo and whatever "Tiny Personal Firewall" is named nowadays on your short list. I think Kerio might have sold it now and it's named something else. Otherwise, just put Comodo on your short list. I think the current version's ease of use has taken a step backwards, seems a bit counter-intuitive when trying to do certain things with it, but overall it does a good job and the price is right.
