    "Beware!!! Intense Malware on this Install"

    January 13, 2014   |   By SteveW__

    Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.30.2

    Pros

    I didn't have time to evaluate the firewall component to this install. I was to darn busy trying to remove the malware this download installed. I even opted out of all the additional "free" installs offered before the install program began.

    Cons

    Loaded up with hard to remove malware. Wow! It was a mistake downloading this train wreck. It was so bad, that I had to walk away from my computer and work on the malware again on another day.

    "Straightforward, effective free firewall!"

    January 03, 2014   |   By Batchoy2

    Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.30.2

    Pros

    Simple to use
    Easy to navigate
    Adapts easily with your system

    Cons

    Just the old GUI but no more so far.

    Summary

    From Comodo Free Firewall, I now use the Privatefirewall.

    I have made an extensive research from other independent reviews and sites and hence, Privatefirewall is a good contender!

    Updated on Jan 17, 2014

    I now use Privatefirewall 7.0 on all of my computers. I uninstall the latest Comodo Free Firewall.

    "Blocks legitimate programs"

    December 16, 2013   |   By sharcs

    Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.30.2

    Pros

    - Very light weight and easy to use
    - Does it's job of creating a barrier between your computer and the internet

    Cons

    - Block a lot of legitimate programs and sometimes doesn't even admit to it. It took me several resets to discover that it crashes my Steam games on launch and I had to turn it of when updating windows because it was automatically blocking random files from the update.

    Summary

    I wouldn't use it again simply because, if something goes wrong, I'll never be able to be sure if there's something wrong with my computer or if a program has it's hands tied behind it's back by PrivateFirewall.
