what about sygate personal firewall, i heard its really good, and low on system resources, is it any better than comodo.

i know Nod32's new security suit is going to be the best, because of their excellent all round protection, and low system resourse usage, but its only it beta now, release date i dont really know for the final.

so what about sygate firewall, version 5

I like N0d32 but only thing I hate about it is when testing my addons by manually installing them they take forever because stupid nod is scanning each png file :huh:

It takes 1 Hour (not kidding) to install the Windows Sidebar

For a free one I don't think your can go wrong with Comodo Pro, I scraped a paid version of ZA for it and never looked back

Online Armour is offering a free version that is supposedly up there with the best.

As I have a hardware firewall I only need outbound control.

Using Sandboxie here and by adding the below settings to SB's ini file nothing but Firefox can connect to the net from within a sandboxed browsing session.

ClosedFilePath=!firefox.exe,\Device\Afd*

ClosedFilePath=!firefox.exe,\Device\Tcp

ClosedFilePath=!firefox.exe,\Device\Udp

ClosedFilePath=!firefox.exe,\Device\RawIp

Replace firefox with the browser name you are using and remember that nothing else "running sandboxed" will be able to connect, including your email app.

I've been recommending Comodo Firewall Pro. It's an excellent firewall. Use 2.4 for the time being, as v3 has many bugs still, despite the fact it's a public release.

It installed and works flawlessly on my server. But on my main pc it doesn't load the tray icon and despite having told it that I only want the firewall, it installed Defense+...
