"Best there WAS"

November 16, 2012  |  By ITepb

 |  Version: AVS Firewall 2.1.2.241

Pros

Easy install, easy setup, with 3 nice bonus features.
Registry Protector, Ad filter, Parental Controls.
Block everything unless have rules quick option.
Auto block all new requests is the best.
Popup was simple to understand, with Make Rule option.

Cons

No x64 support.

Summary

I just really liked this software. The interface (GUI) was elegant and clean and I just liked its look. Nothing beat the New Rule popup, just a simple Allow, or Deny, with Remember Rule. No other Firewall looked this good. Really will miss having this on my PC since upgrading to x64 bit. They have no x64 bit version and have said they will not make one either.
Again, compared to other firewalls, they have so much clutter or just plain ugly interfaces and can be so difficult to understand.
If you have x32/86 bit windows use this firewall, noting better and it's free.

"Actually AVS is a great company."

February 18, 2012  |  By GamerKing

 |  Version: AVS Firewall 2.1.2.241

Pros

I purchased the lifetime package some years ago. (Around $50) it allowed me to install about 20 of their apps. Some months ago, I reformatted my HDD and lost all my AVS apps. It took a single email and they sent me all the info I needed to download and install ALL THE LATEST versions of their software.

I don't use their firewall, so you must look to others for advice on that. But, I must defend the company's reputation for integretity.

Cons

None that I know of.

Summary

If you use audio/video software, than check out their bundled package. Then you get their firewall and antispam software as part of the deal.

"Finally after a sluggish start, a great Firewall,Need +"

January 04, 2011  |  By mastrulo

 |  Version: AVS Firewall 2.1.2.241

Pros

As a Firewall, I've tested it with all and it passes well.
NOW fix the Reg to work the same and Great, better than Most.
Fix the Banner and No one will touch you, you will be miles ahead.
The Reg should ask once and make rules as Firewall. Awesome

Cons

Still a long way to go.
The Reg Side of it will be there soon, BUT the Banner is a Nightmare even for Very experienced, Remember the KISS Principle,"Keep It Simple Stupid".
At the moment I loose interest of change refresh no that wasn't it & so on.

Summary

I love it.
I love the total concept of the Software Suite, even though I had many of their apps and some are free, I jumped on the Lifetime Free upgrades and any more apps Free.
I would recommend to all to take up this offer before they increase it as it is a TOTAL Swiss Knife approach, yes there are bugs, and some are ..well bloated because memory is cheap and PCs are getting faster so they have a few lazy and outright useless programmers, very normal in any company the good the bad and the ugly!
The concept is great and so far all that I have used except the media player is very intuitive to use, I love the Audio Editor, I had an old LP to MP3 file that had 1 second of the previous song at the beginning of the next (it was a live track), the second time I used it, I removed that offending bit, that's how easy most are, and there are a dozen or more with more coming, the last is the Doc converter, simply great, convert anything to anything (almost, but next ver will do that as well).
I can only have praise at 90+% and 10% will always be ugly until they get rid of that person that is an anchor attached to the Ferrari.
Keep it up, fix the Firewall first!!!

"Not one problem after 6 months of use"

November 20, 2010  |  By 1g2br3

 |  Version: AVS Firewall 2.1.2.241

Pros

It is simple to use and very effective in doing all that a firewall should do.

Cons

I have yet to find a con.

Summary

I am not a computer expert, but I have been using AVS Firewall for at least 6 months, during which time it has proved to be very successful. It is simple to install and effective to use, and I have yet to find fault with it. Added to this, it is very cost effective.
