    Looking for a Windows 8.1 x64 compatible FW. I would love to use my license to LookNStop with Phant0ms ruleset, but the 8.1 update broke it and it no longer works.

    Looking for something just as light weight and granular to work alongside WSA

    Webroot does recommend BiniSoft's Windows Firewall Control on their community forum - not officially, but a staffer does list it. It adds outbound notifications to Windows Firewall. Works great, but can keep you a bit busy when it is first installed. That all calms down after you've defined the outbound rules.

    You can find the BiniSoft support forum right here at Wilders.

    $10, Lifetime Licence, Unlimited Installs... whale of a deal for such a good little soft.

    WFC or W10FC (pro) are the nearest neighbourhood for LnS, except you like Outpost or similar. both can use zones/profiles and can be set granular as LnS. Outpost same, but its much larger. have you tried those?

    Private firewall worked great for me on windows 8.1, light on the system & it has basic HIPS built in.

    What about TinyWall? How does that stack up again WFC/W10FC and Private FW?
