Firewall for Windows 7

  audeal 19:08 18 Jun 2009

Can any one tell me which would be the best firewall for the new Windows 7 RC which I have just installed. Avast Anti-Virus works ok but Commodo will not install so I need a good replacement.

Thanks for any help. Audeal

Timbo. Thanks for that link. I have downloaded it and also Ashampoo Firewall and will try them out later. Time for a spot of TV now.

Zone Alarm works on the 32 bit version, tho' not the 64.

laurie53: Thanks for that info. I have now got both Avast and Comodo working on Windows 7. I downloaded their latest versions, but with Commode, I downloaded the Vista 32 bit version and installed that. I had some problems with it but eventually got it working.

I ran both Avast and Comodo and found about 30+ viruses and Trojan Horses on the system, which goes to show how dangerous it is to run without any firewall or anti virus protection on your system, even for a short time.

Thanks to everyone for your help. I will tick this thread now.
