    I could kick myself a thousand times for deleting one of Spyware Terminator's releases when I had Windows XP. The version that I'm referencing had a brief feature unique to only a few early versions I found incredibly useful even if it missed a hundred other items.

    It was that interactive auto list that every single file you clicked no matter what, a toast list would in Real-Time display and climb up your screen showing interactions of dependent files that were called. Most users hated it since it was annoying having a lower right screen toast rise up constantly displaying that exe files dependencies such as DLL's called as the file was actively clicked on.

    It was a magnificent work of art IMHO that all other things aside made it a useful program a user could easily visually follow as any program was acted on.

    If If If anyone happens to know what i'm describing of that early ST release version and has that particular installer it would be greatly appreciated.

    I haven't seen anything else like it since.

    yeah, with insanely granular settings under the hood. for my money, it was the epitome of fw architecture before the wfp kicked in with vista.

    My favorite was Look 'n' Stop. Website still there, but development stopped several years ago. Was using it with Phant0m's rule set.

    The old Tiny Personal Firewall. I think it was 2.0.9. Ran on Win 98 thru 2000. First firewall I ever used. Hadn't a clue what I was doing when I tried to tighten it up even more (which it didn't need), and ended up locking myself out of my own computer. Ended up having to re-install Win 98 and everything else.

    Yes, definitely agreed!
    (and BTW IEClean and NSClean (from Kevin and Nancy))

    And let's not forget TDS3 and WormGuard from DiamondCS.
    ProcessGuard was already mentioned.
