"DOES THE JOB (SO FAR)"

February 20, 2012  |  By Edinburgh1

 |  Version: Online Armor Free 5.0

Pros

Free, easy set up.Very secure.Doesn't slow my system down at all.Quite low on CPU.

Cons

A bit too aggressive at learning my system.After a week its settling down now.

Summary

My trusted Comodo Firewall was letting me down.
Online Armour blocks everything thrown at it.
Its free, easy to set up and has many security features.Even blocked a malicious site that AV's usually do.Very pleased so far!

"EXCELLENT protection"

December 16, 2011  |  By ComputerLuvr

 |  Version: Online Armor Free 5.0

Pros

Very user friendly

Cons

None at the moment

Summary

It fully passed the Gibson leak test. I also like how it runs seamlessly in the background. You start with a learning curve from the program and then your set to go. I have the free version on my home computer. Tested it on twenty computers at work. And it performed EXCELLENTLY. I highly recommend it. :)

"Online Armor Free works very well."

November 27, 2011  |  By jamest99

 |  Version: Online Armor Free 5.0

Pros

Free,works in the background, easy to setup.

Cons

When downloading and installing new or updated software, the learning mode is a bit of a pain. However, that is what a good firewall does in order to learn about trusted software etc..

"Excellent Fire Wall! Ver 5.1.0.1331"

October 20, 2011  |  By ses6236

 |  Version: Online Armor Free 5.0

Pros

O-A Free was the top rated fire wall by http://www.matousec.com/ until a business agreement dispute, which caused Matousec to remove O-A Free from their testing.

Now that the HIPS profiling is finished,performance is great.

Cons

For several hours after upgrading from V 5.0 to VER 5.1.0.1331, O-A was profiling the activities on the machine and slowed the whole machine down for about 3 sec out of each 8 sec. Then abruptly, the performance returned to normal.

Summary

When I installed O-A 5.1.01331it was initially a resource hog, making on of my 2 core processors 80% busy for about 3 sec. our of every 7-8 sec. After a number of hours of that this activity stopped. Checking task manager showed that the O-A program oasrv.exe was the culprit. Since the hogging activity stopped oasrv.exe has consumed only a very small amount of cpu time and my computer response time has been very good.

My guess is that O-A was in a learning mode, which is documented for the product, and once that was finished, response time went back to normal.

Updated on Oct 20, 2011

Obviously you are doing something wrong to be having those complaints.

A) did you turn off your machines native fire wall?

B) Did you add the program path of your A-V to O-A, and visa-versa.

I haven't had a single problem withe O-A 5.0, but 5.1.0.1331 does consume a lot of resource for an hour or so while it profiles your machine.

You could be experiencing the machine profiling of the HIPS process....

September 29, 2011  |  By Spiechter

 |  Version: Online Armor Free 5.0

None at this time.

"Just didn't work for me..."

September 21, 2011  |  By cleaning970

 |  Version: Online Armor Free 5.0

Pros

It seemed to work, I guess.

Cons

It slowed down my computer to the point that I couldn't do anything on the internet, so what's the point of having it. I would tell it to trust a program and it would ignore the action and pop up windows would come up every 3 seconds.

Summary

It is possible that I just didn't know how to work this program. I am not as computer literate as others so I will say that maybe the program would have worked fine if I had known more about how to negotiate the program itself.
