    Firewalls as we once knew them are dead. Those who sold their privacy so they would not have to pay for something has destroyed internet security.

    I agree with what you said. Zonealarm USED to be good till they sold out.

    If you are not running Windows 10 then the firewall in manual mode will work. It drives ya a bit crazy getting the rules setup but once you do then you are as good as you are going to get. If you are running windows 10 then you are just out of luck.

    These links can make it a bit easier to use Windows firewall. Read how each one works and make sure you make an informed decision if you choose one.

    I still use ZoneAlarm, but my second choice would be Comodo if i had to make a choice.
