"Rock solid Firewall"

February 01, 2012  |  By mr smith--2008

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.25.5

Pros

No problems so far and I have been using it for at least several months. I use it with ESET Anti-V and have never had anything unwanted on my PC. Nice features like: allow, filter, deny or customise access of applications and processes. Also has, at a glace, port tracking with view properties and terminate options.
All for FREE!

Cons

None that I know of. (For some the graphics might not be 'fancy' enough.)

Summary

I used Comodo before this and that crashed whilst I was playing an online game, so how long I was left naked on the internet for I have no idea as I was playing online for about 2 hours and had no warning that it had crashed. :(
Privatefirewall has never let me down, it is rock solid.
Once the process detection part has learnt what normally runs on your PC then you can literally just forget about it. It is very rarely that I even look through the recent logs, now, as I know that it just 'works' so I have no need to bother with it, even if someone or thing has tried to probe my PC 8-)

Updated on Feb 1, 2012

I have used it with Windows XP 32 and now with Windows 7 64.

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.25.5

Pros

a must have and boy does it make adware folks mad. When you press the red stoplight stops cookies from thiefs. It also helps you to see the action of unwanted folks actions then it reads your blocks and just blocks them. get wise registry and disk cleaners free and use them daily to keep thefts from taking info.

Cons

none this product does what it says.

Summary

"Excellent Firewall"

December 23, 2011  |  By neomarcman

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.25.5

Pros

Works better than Zone Alarm or Comodo. Very secure program.

Cons

Don't like the ASPCA program or the ID Vault that comes with it.

Summary

Best free firewall out there, just got to get rid of the ASPCA stuff and maybe the ID vault as well, but other than that, a great security program.

"Works great! Simple to use! Solid!"

December 23, 2011  |  By pickycustomer

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.25.5

Pros

Works. Quiet.

Cons

None here.

Summary

Private Firewall does what it says it will do. Simple to set-up and runs quietly in the background. I highly recommend Private Firewall for the novice or the experienced.

I agree with gord8166 and download all of your software from a website that does "not" add their own bloatware.

"Good product"

November 15, 2011  |  By TheDerpster

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.25.5

Pros

Works well with my anti-virus and runs light, when you first install it it asks for permission to run everything the first time but it remembers all those programs the next time they run.

Cons

When you are trying to stream large files like movies you really need to turn the filters off because it perilously slow so I just switch the filter back on when I'm done streaming.

Summary

I got this for intrusion prevention and since I've had it installed I haven't had a single intrusion notification from Norton so basically does what it says it will do.

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.25.5

Pros

Light weight,
Highly Effective
IT IS FREE

Not a single one!

Beats Comodo Firewall by a mile. If you are a Comodo Firewall user, you should try Privatefirewall. Comodo uses to much of your computer system!!

Cnet is a great place to shop for utilities ! But they are now downloading bloatware with all downloads. You have to be very careful not to download the boatware in their downloads now. I suggest going to the source website of what you are trying to download. Cnet please stop this practice !!!!
