    I used TinyWall for awhile to block Windows Updates. It did a good job but have since found a better way. You could check it out. I watched a couple YouTube videos to see how it works.

    Hi folks.

    Nothing wrong with Windows firewall -- use the rules properly and it will work as good as anything else.

    Another area most people seem to ignore is the usually very good firewalls built into routers these days -- also LOOK AT THE LOGS - then you can see if any attempt has been made to enter your system. Most decent routers allow you to set up the firewalls very easily via a graphical interface.

    I'll bet 90% or more reading this section of the board don't use the router firewall and certainly never examine the logs !!!!

    Cheers
