"Working great, agree with MichaelCorbin42"

 |  Version: Windows 10 Firewall Control 7.0.10.31

Pros

I have had this installed and learning for a day and a half on an XP machine. It is especially important with XP that the Windows Firewall be buttressed because Windows Firewall in XP was never as good as it has been since Windows 7 and up. So saith those who know such things. I have been using my various applications, and this program has been learning and doing what I tell it, in a similar fashion to other firewalls that used to be great but that have seriously gone downhill. For example, look at what has become of the old ZoneAlarm. Yikes! This is doing fine, and it is very quiet except for when it has to be told--once--that another application is ok. Again, it is a strong buttress for Windows Firewall, not a replacement.

Cons

It took a long time to install and get running, maybe 10 seconds of my time wasted. lol

Summary

It does the job and is quiet except when it has to learn something new. AS WITH ALL OF THE GOOD ONES, IT IS UP TO YOU TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT SAYING YES OR NO.

If I am allowed to say this, check the review for the predecessor Windows 7 Firewall Control at other sites. One of the more significant is Major Geeks. Despite "Windows 7" having been part of the name, that also worked/works with everything from XP up. I got the separate specific XP version of the new update, renamed to include the words "Windows 10," from the manufacturer's site. Awesome.

"The best program control i have found for free"

 |  Version: Windows 10 Firewall Control 7.0.10.31

Pros

Locks down any program you don't want talking to the internet. Easy to use. Totally Free. I've been using other versions of this program for years. It is not crap in the least. If you have trouble turning your computer on, this is not for you. If you dont like all you programs reporting to the mothership about your pc activity, this will stop it.

Cons

Sometimes works too good. You need to be paying attention when installing things for the first time. It will always lock down a program until you tell it otherwise

Summary

These reviews that say "the firewall stops programs from talking to the internet," are ridiculous. That's what this software was made to do! If you're too stupid to work the program, why did you download in the first place? Stick with the firewall that came with your windows. If you don't need it, don't download it. And you certainly shouldn't give something a bad review just because you cant work it. Lastly, This software is not hard to use. Don't be mislead.
