    Has anyone used Ashampoo FireWall FREE?

    https://www.ashampoo.com/uk/gbp/pin/0050/Security_Software/Ashampoo-FireWall-FREE

    Supported Operating Systems:
    Windows® 2000 (Service Pack 4) and Windows® XP (Service Pack 2).

    "You probably know that you need a firewall program to use the Internet safely. In addition to protecting you against attacks from the Internet, a good firewall will also tell you when programs installed on your computer are trying to phone home and enable you to prevent them from doing it. This is something that Windows® own firewall doesn’t do, and it’s essential for identifying and stopping the activities of many malicious virus and spyware programs. For example, this enables you to prevent your computer from being turned into a “zombie” controlled by spammers or destructive hackers."

    People used to say that if you use Ashampoo you got shampoo in your email inbox. Tough idk if that's still the case. :D

    Its driver it's a bit weird, some people had conflicts. If it runs ok on your computer, it's very light and simple. But beware, i think that you must edit all rules manually, because if you let it automatic, it allows each process inbound too.

    You have to try it for yourself. On my PC it was working quite well, but it did have some bugs with some specific applications that i can't remember.

    Personally, I steer away from anything Ashampoo, but that's just me.
