    Currently, i have comodo firewall installed but i am not sure if it is the best solution, or if i really need to install third party firewall. I just like comodo firewall because it's more easy to use then the default windows firewall. What do you recommend?

    Comodo firewall is working much better on Windows 7 than on Windows 10, so I'd keep it

    I choose Windows 10 Firewall control (Sphinx) .
    Tried almost everything else, after Outpost and then Emsisoft dropped their firewalls.
    After a little learning it works well, plus one time price.

    Windows 7x64

    Light on resources. I just need a FW and I like Comodo. I used it with AppGuard. I disable the D+ and Sandbox.

    same here - up to windows 10.
    fully compatible and from my understanding this IS a firewall (like Windows firewall under windows 8/10).
    it has granular settings, either zones or other.
    the links leads to comodo.
    norton firewall? that product is ancient and abanonned. symantec bought atguard and ditched this wonderful produkt.

    similar firewalls:
    atguard (very ancient)
    outpost (abandonned)
    jetico firewall (free, abandonned)
    W10FC (current)

    for comodo i am not sure it it offers additional crap for a firewall, like sandbox or malware scan. BS.

    Ahh, AtGuard. Brings back so much memories ... Yes, Memory Lane ...

    We still have very old posts from CrazyM.
    Look at https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/useful-links-recommended-threads.24415/
    and then go to :
    Customizing Firewall Rules
    System Wide Rules
    Global Permit/Block Rules
    Application Rules
    Final Block Rules

    Sorry for getting off-topic.
    Thank you Brummelchen for reminding ;)
    Back to topic.

    For Win 7 and still to get as free - Comodo, Outpost Free, PCTools FW, Privatefriewall...each one with HIPS module.
    Without HIPS - tools like SimpleWall or actually already not avaliable from developer like Look'n'Stop that can be still activated if you have valid activation key.

    Yikes! What a nice list of what used to be top notch at the time.

    Wouldn't mind locating a good link for Kerio 2.15 just for nostalgia sakes. It was on my machines for a good long time around then.
