"Didn't work for me"

February 26, 2014  |  By Dr_William_James

 |  Version: FortKnox Personal Firewall 9.0.305

Pros

Clear GUI, no bloatware, easy to install and uninstall.

Cons

Caused problems with Chrome and Firefox.

Summary

Having used Sygate Personal Firewall Pro with Windows XP for many years, I was looking for something with similar functionality that was compatible with Windows 7. I just wanted a basic firewall that would enable me to control outbound connections, without any additional bloat, and from the reviews I read, FortKnox seemed to fit the bill. Unfortunately it caused problems with the two browsers I use, Chrome and Firefox. With FortKnox running, Chrome took approximately 80 seconds to open, though once open it functioned normally. Firefox, on the other hand, opened immediately but promptly froze and had to be closed from the Task Manager. For these reasons I have uninstalled FortKnox and am now using Windows Firewall Control, which so far seems to be doing the job I want, no more, no less.
