Simple but effective firewall please..

to put on my new laptop which is linked to the internet and to my main computer through a Netgear router. I have tried Comodo (which I have on my main computer) but have got a System Status problem saying that the network firewall is not functioning correctly .. and frankly I do not know how to fix this. Everything else with it seems to be working OK.

Possibly interference with Windows own?

Two + firewalls conflict all too easily.

As Diemmess says, you should only run one firewall and one antivirus.

But if that doesn't turn out to be the problem, and you want to try a different free firewall, you might like to try Zonealarm's free one.
