    Does anyone have any links to reviews/tests on the McAfee Desktop Firewall 8.5? Googling hasn't come up with much.

    I recently gave this firewall a try (along with VSE:cool: and it seems very good and quite light at around 10-11meg RAM usage (just the firewall not VSE!). In addition to packet filtering rules, it seems to have an application 'sandbox' and process hook control - is this something similar to process guard?

    I tried a couple of the leaktests and the application and/or hook control seemed to take care of them but I'm not technical enough to test it properly which is why I'm looking for some reviews read up on. I'm also behind a router so I haven't tested if it stealths ok.

    Thanks Nick, but your link is for Virusscan. It's a review of the McAfee desktop firewall that I was after.
