    The BitDefender Firewall is made by Softwin. This firewall is an application firewall (i.e. it will only block applications from making unauthorised connections to the Internet). It does not protect you from hackers. A full firewall should probably be included in BitDefender 9.0 :)

    It is recommended that you use the Windows Firewall along with the BD firewall. There are no conflicts between the two.

    I dont know for sure. I do know that it will conflict with firewalls that have application/services level blocking.

    If the firewall only protects from outside threats like viruses, hackers etc. then there is no conflict with BD firewall :)

    Best antivirus ive tried.
    Firewall is only application so ive taken it off.
    Ive never seen so many updates.
    It is also the lightest ,on my pc,that ive ever tried.
    I think ive finally found the antivirus for me .After this i dont think i can find better.
