    Yeah,

    Agree with Kees and Escalader, Creer is taken on a bit to harsh in my opinion.

    Chear up Creer I enjoyed reading the results :thumb:

    I'm late to the party.

    First of all, thanks to Creer for having taken time to do the tests.

    Nobody who has done testing themselves AND also taken time to do screenshots, compress them, upload them and write the posts, can appreciate this enough.

    It takes a lot of effort.

    As for the results, I don't think the results are random.

    I'd say that they are highly likely indicative of performance on various (if not most systems).

    I'm running completely different systems (Win7 64bit, 12GB ram, 4-core 3.6GHz, fast SSD) and I can definitely agree about the results on OA, PCT, Comodo and LnS *on my machine, with my usage patterns*.

    If I were looking for a light fw, with lightness being my main concern, I'd look at the Win7 built-in FW and LnS first. Everything else behind that, some of them very far behind (like Comodo).

    Just my two cents worth.
