best free firewall

  pookie 09:06 04 Dec 2009


Windows XP home SP3.

I have come to end of paid for security suite and now installed free avira as antivirus, free malwarebytes and free spywareblaster. I am using free comodo firewall in meantime as that was the favourite of forum users (with zonealarm) last time i needed a free one.

Is the comodo free firewall still ok? I ask as their security suites seem to be getting poor reviews.

Had (still have on dual boot) Comodo free firewall with MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials ani virus) on XP SP3. Works well with the other applications, if a bit intrusive. Have awitched to (Free) PC Tools on Windows 7 64 bit following advice on the W7 forum. (with Avira)

Comodo was the best Firewall and may still be.I would just stay with that.Maybe add Superantispyware or A squared to your collection and you should be Ok.
