    I am looking for a simple free firewall for win 7. It should have both inbound and outbound control, SPI, and offer different profiles for wireless connections. A HIPS is not necessary, and I dont want Comodo as ive heard it attempts to dial home at every oppurtunity.

    Online Armor, Outpost or PC Tools ...or you can just tweak windows 7 firewall to have outgoing protection (that's what I am using atm).

    Win7 seems a bit complicated and you need to pay for the firewall control to enable outbound protection.

    EDIT: Do these firewalls work under an LUA? Oh and Online Armor doesnt have full SPI.

    actually windows 7 is built in to have outbound control .. it's just that it is deactivated by default ... follow this tut to activate outbound control on windows 7 firewall https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=239750. I believe all these free firewall would work on LUA.

    Outpost is my favorite. Always u can use Online Armor, this is a good software too, and maybe PC Tools.
