As far as I know Norton took it over.Comodo is one of the top Firewalls.You may have to turn Windows firewall on temporary until you remove Sygate Firewall.When you download Comodo it should automatically turn off Windows Firewall when it installs.

Hmm.Not sure if you have to use the full free security suite or here

Sunbelt (ex-Kerio)and Comodo both are good firewalls. Sunbelt has less in the way of "warnings - it tends to most things automatically. You get 30 days of their commercial version - then if you choose not to pay, it reverts to their free version.

Symantec Norton) took over the Sygate firewall two years ago.

Read the link more carefully - the free products section.

Teach me - I clicked the free firewall link - and it went straight to the security suite again!

Sorry - I have to change my recommendations - I hadn't seen that all links now lead to the full suite.

A point, connected with butemans reply. I tried commodo firewall. Decided I was not keen on it and deleted it. I am using windows firewall, if i click on the firewall button, this indicates that both firewalls are running? I deleted commodo using "add or remove", after this I tried to use revo, it could not find any trace of commodo. I am not trying to pinch your thread, merely letting you know to be careful if you delete it. Aine
