    I think Ashampoo has a free firewall without HIPS.

    Can that possibly be lighter than GhostWall? Don't think so.

    Kerio 2.1.5 is a good solution for a simple firewall.

    Thanks to all for the suggestions. I have started out trying PC Tools FW. I had thought to try an older version of ZA free, but couldn't remember which version I last had that worked so well for me. I believe it was back in 05 or 06.

    There are quite a few old versions of Zone Alarm available at OldVersion.

    For a pure, lightweight rule based firewall, it's hard to find better than Kerio 2.1.5.

    Windows firewall, Sygate, Kerio 2.1.5.
    Personally, I'm using mostly 1 and 2 when relevant and applicable.

    Windows FW. None of that HIPS / outbound rubbish. Just pure, light inbound traffic filtering.

    Best free pure firewall: Sygate or Kerio 2.1.5

    And if you're willing to pay, LooknStop is fantastic.

    Pure firewall, being defined as filtering inbound and outbound ports, and deny/allow based on address/port/mac, SoftPerfect does this, and only this. No injection monitoring, no application monitoring. So, it could be defined as pure I suppose.

    Windows Firewall, for inbound pure too I suppose. I use it mostly.

    You might also consider ipsec as a pure firewall. Not easy to use, but can do same thing in regards to allow/restrict based on ports or ip.

    Depends what your doing on your PC? Most people are okay with their Router 3 hardware firewalls. Some still use the hardware and software types. Like most here use some sort of sandbox types. Still just a plain fast one would be Firewall Plus 3.14. I have it hosted on my site see the Firewall Plus 3.14 posting in this thread. That's good with P2P if you do that, otherwise that's it..
