"Disappointed - I expected more from Lavasoft"

June 03, 2009  |  By Zenbob96

 |  Version: Lavasoft Personal Firewall (32-bit) 3.0

Pros

Aggressive, itchy and twitchy

Cons

Aggressive, itchy and twitchy. It hiccups a lot, and seems to be in a pitched battle with users...the pop-up screens come at you so fast that you feel overwhelmed. Seems feverishly incapable for the program to learn new rules.

Summary

Exhausting, frustrating and silly. Why provide check boxes for setting new behavior when the program just keeps smacking away constantly with the same old behavior? I felt like I was engaged in an epic fly swatting battle.

In the end, it had to go. You may feel the same sense of desperation. Try Agnitum Outpost!

"Best of the worst."

November 15, 2008  |  By Someonehowdoescare

 |  Version: Lavasoft Personal Firewall (32-bit) 3.0

Pros

Detects everything (as far as I can tell), can group one application's activity, has a farily good entertainment (full screen) mode, and it even does firewall-level content blocking!

Cons

Tries very hard to not let you be in charge. Sometimes allows an app. access even though you have specified that you want to block it. (It overrides your decisions based on some algorithm or something.)

Summary

Very hard to take controll of the application, it wants to be all-automatic; which it does not do a very good job at. However, when you do get in controll it is the best firewall available today.
