    "A great Firewall but unnoticed and unappreciated"

    September 14, 2008  |   By Smoaky

    Version: Rising Firewall 2011 20.44

    Pros

    Great GUI,doesn't slow down your PC running 2000 or newer,easy and painless updates and many many settings that other Firewalls don't include.Some features are a Trojan scanner,vulnerability check,lists all your start-up programs and more.

    Cons

    Not free. After trial period the firewall is rendered inoperable and no updates. Daily "nag screens" to buy before trial period expires.

    Summary

    I just had to write this review because no one has given this Firewall any credit or positive reviews recently. The only current review was from someone running 98SE.
    I have this firewall running on Vista Ultimate and XP and absolutely love it and will buy it when my trial period ends.

    People are skeptical because this software originates from China.
    But if you know anything about computers or electronics, a very high percent of all our electronic components are made in China.
    Also several Large Corporations are using Rising Firewall/Anti-Virus to protect their business's.
    Email support is fast,informative and friendly.
    What have you got to lose???
    You have 31 days to try it out and all features are enabled during that time.
    Note: If you buy Rising Anti-Virus (which I also highly recommend) from their website you will receive Rising Firewall for free!!!!
    I do not work for Rising just a satisfied user.

    "Not a very good software for free trial for 30 days"

    September 13, 2008  |   By cindymollybutch

    Version: Rising Firewall 2011 20.44

    Pros

    The only thing good about this software is you can update until your 30 day are up.

    Cons

    I do not recommend this software

    Summary

    I am still using Windows 98SE, and ever since I installed the free trial that I have used for 16 days. I have never seen so much spam through my email from foreign countries, that I have never received before. I have found more Trojans with my spyware and antivirus that I have never had before. I will stick to my old faithful Filseclab firewall for Windows 98.

    "UNstable on download and "can" cause system lock-up"

    May 5, 2007  |   By nighttracker

    Version: Rising Firewall 2011 19.13

    Pros

    ...Made in China and appears to be riddled with holes within its own portal.actually caused alot of problems on a completely legitimate xp system.had to preform a complete system re-boot inorder to finally delete this poorly built 3rd world system.you will be taking a severe chance if downloading this junk.as bad as the poison in thier dog-food that china sent to the good ole U.S.A. they deny that-one too!

    Cons

    The only thing I liked about this program was...Seeing it leave my system.POST based on FACT.

    "I question this program"

    July 5, 2006  |   By Ionv

    Version: Rising Firewall 2011 18.31

    Cons

    when I down loaded this program,my computer began acting as if there were an infection.I downloaded an anti virus program,it caught 2 virus type programs,both were in this firewall program.1 was on download the other came in with an update of this program.I uninstalled the rising firewall program and loaded another firewall program,ran a virus scan and no more problems.I am sorry,but I can not recommend this firewall program.Perhaps,it was just a fluke,but I am unable to recommend this program

    "Rising Firewall provides good protection for your computer"

    July 4, 2006  |   By Antus

    Version: Rising Firewall 2011 18.31

    Pros

    Comment:

    Rising Firewall is a unique software from the standpoint it contains features not only to protect your computer from Hackers but has the capability to scan for trojans,virus's and worms in memory. Also a unique feature is for those that are gamer's Rising Fireall has a "sandbox" as I will name it to protect you when gaming online.

    "Installation"

    Installation went smoothed with no problems.

    "Resouces"

    Held at 89%

    "Main GUI"

    The main gui is user friendly and well thought out by the developers.

    "Port Scan Tests"

    Eight web sites were used to test port scans against Rising Firewall and how well it defends against the scans:

    /

    **Note** Rising Firewall passed all scans and showed stealth with 1 exception. Sygate port showed 3 open ports.

    "Update"

    This feature is nice.......Rising Firewall will automatically update the firewall against new threats and keep current the applications patches needed to detect trojans,worms,and virus's.

    "Conclusion"

    Rising Firewall is unique firewall with good protection against Hackers.....the added features of trojan and virus detection needs to be refined and tweaked to the point where it will detect any intrusion againsts ones computer. The added feature of gamers (sandbox protection) is a first from my standpoint and a welcome addition to those users gaming on the web....Nice job done by Rising on this feature. I highly recommend this firewall as it has great potential........I will continue to monitor and test it out as upgrades develop

    Cons

    Trojan Scanner need to broaden its range of trojan detections. Also by default all port scans should be stealth...as indicated above ports showed open at one of the test sites.
