Vote for the best Firewall Software for Windows OS

As you all know, all the latest Windows operating system includes a inbuilt firewall protection for security reasons, which is enabled by default. This means that most of the un-applied programs may not accept Internet communications unless we choose to label them as exceptions. There are two programs that, by default, are added to the list of exceptions and can accept unsolicited Internet, that is, Files Wizard and Settings Transfer and File and Printer Sharing. Since firewalls restrict communication between the computer and the Internet, you may need to adjust the settings of some programs that work best with an open connection. You can make an exception for these programs, so that they can communicate through Windows Firewall.

But apart from the inbuilt firewall in Windows there are also paid and free third party Firewall software, available in the market. So, I would like to know which one do you like the most and why, please share your thoughts.

Re: Vote for the best Firewall Software for Windows OS

I use Comodo Firewall and it is a very good security program for sure. It is a free firewall that effectively protects computer from the dangers lurking on the Internet. It comes in a clear interface that can be quickly understood with the different tabs given. Viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, etc; are immediately identified by its powerful detection engine. A clear and accessible description accompanies each alert to help users make the right decision. Its built-in database of more than 10,000 software enables automatic configuration for the most common applications. Advanced users will appreciate its dynamic filtering capabilities and the ability to add rules manually. You can easily manage multiple configurations. Note that the proactive protection module "defense +" informs you in real time about software, files and processes accessing the network, as well as their level of potential danger. Also Comodo Firewall now includes a "Sandbox" button that allows you to test suspicious programs installed in a closed and secure virtual environment.

I would vote for ZoneAlarm Free Firewall because it provides good protection against attacks from the internet. It is free for non-commercial use and provides permanent protection to any users. It controls the applications that run on a PC and can block any suspicious or dangerous Internet exchange. It also offers multiple levels of security. ZoneAlarm provides proactive protection with firewall-like multiple layers of security that block attacks and intrusion attempts while remaining completely invisible to hackers. It also prevents spyware and other malicious programs from sending personal information over the Internet.

Regarding its use, setup is fairly simple. First, enter your user information and then select your Internet connection. If you have never used a firewall before, click on "Beginner", then choose the number and type of PC you want to protect. When the software starts, you can choose whether you wish to be informed whenever a connection is attempted (warning alerts can be many).

Re: Vote for the best Firewall Software for Windows OS

I use TinyWall Firewall which is a very lightweight security program. TinyWall includes a combination of characteristics that distinguishes it from the freeware or commercial firewall. TinyWall does not show popups, but in fact, you will be notified of any action blocked. Instead of displaying popups, TinyWall allows you to add to its white list or unlock programs through various methods. For example, you can start adding in the white list just one hotkey and then click on a window to allow it. Or, you can select an application from the list of running processes.
