    Privatefirewall, but it needs to be upgraded to stealth ports.

    "stealth ports" features is just a placebo effect...to be simple:

    non-stealthed ports > port scan> reply from opened/closed ports in the selected range > hacker says "ok its normal"

    stealthed ports > Port Scan > ports in the selected range don't reply > hacker says "pfff... again the stealth port feature of a firewall"

    result, almost useless feature

    I am currently using Tinywall along with Bitdefender antivirus 2013 plus.
    Fantastic combo and lightweight.

    How do you change PF to stealth ports? I can't find the option and it appears that I have stealth ports by default.

    I now use and recommend the Windows Firewall.

    It does stealth ports. :)

    first of all, DON NOT USE BD PRODUCTS! :)
    second of all, if you decided to stay with BD your safest bet is windows FW.
