    Freeware Standalone Firewall


    Are there any decent firewalls around today? Been running Windows FW/FW control but looking around. Comodo = NO
    Was looking about Glasswire

    Opinions Please

    Hello Ken just wanted to give you my take on Comodo......Been using Comodo firewall on probably 10 different PC's for me and my friends since 2003 and no one has ever had one problem with the software and I am currently using it on 4 PC's in my house and absolutely love the program with no problems whatsoever.

    So could you explain your reasons for disliking Comodo ?

    Just word of mouth over the years mostly on usenet. How bad are the adds ? I tried a couple of different front ends for the Windows FW.
    Seems like Comodo is the only one left standing. I don't know how well it is updated/changed.

    After it is installed there are zero ads but you just have to watch very close on the install and uncheck the ones(Geek Squad & 1 or 2 others I think - Haven't had to install it as of late) it wants to install along with the installation.....And even if you miss those you can always go to "uninstall or change a program"take a look around and delete them from there.

    If you give it another shot let us know how it works out for you.....One of the things I really like is the Containment (Sandbox) it has....I will never use a browser I can't sandbox.....And I go back and forth using Sandboxie also,both are great Sandboxing programs.

    And on another topic I just found a nice sweet little browser called "EPIC Privacy Browser" that is light on add-ons but is really safe and fast and just an all around sweet little compact browser.....EPIC needs to get some simple little things added to it but nothing I can't put up with.....I use it in conjunction with Firefox which is my main browser!

    Maybe I will give it a go. Most of my browsing is to sites like this so not to concerned.
    Cheers

    Nope, page says 2018 so can’t be discontinued or old.

    What are you looking for in a firewall? Personally I've tried most but keep using Comodo. Ads can be turned off. You have to use the custom install option to avoid crap.

    I'm still using an old version:

    Download Comodo Free Firewall 8.4.0.5165 - FileHippo.com

    I keep the firewall enabled but disable everything else.

    You might look at Evorim.
