hi, i really need a FW for vista. i've completely stopped using it because i can't block all the connections made to MS that i see in the logs, it's mainly when programs crash and somekind of report is sent. i tried something with a name like the vista FW service, but it didn't install properly and i just get an error when it tries to load. (i'm starting to think i need to do a reinstall because i generally get 3/4 errors at each boot!) so, can anyone recommend a good FW? i want a rules based and free one. i think there's one by LooknStop, is that the only option? and is it good with vista? thanks.
