Piriform produces such marvelous software!


Recommended Posts

I love how easy & simple/portable your products are.

 

How I wish that you guys could make a portable firewall that could save settings in an ini file.

The current offerings in firewalls do not impress me, for they are either too complicated, or they mess up settings on the computer if you are not very, very careful!

Wish you had a firewall program!

 

If you ever decide to, I will definitely try it out! This is what I am missing! Thanks for your good softwares!

That's very true which is why Windows Firewall used alongside good anti-malware will get you by very well.

I use Windows Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials - I find that together they offer a high level of security and both are free, which is an added bonus.

I use Windows XP Pro SP3 and Windows Firewall since that built-in firewall never once gives an issue and just plain and simple works without being a completely annoying bugger.

 

I wish I could use MSE however on two different XP installs it just doesn't get along perfectly with my system. Possibly my system is a bit ancient being a 2003 Dell but the specs are good on it. I'll try MSE again whenever I get a newer more modern system.

I detest firewall software, windows firewall and a router.

No fate but what we make

Windows Firewall for a long time. Tried others (two way) and always return quickly to Windows own.

 

Works great on my system with Avast (Home).

I use a software firewall (because I am a beta tester for it) but for those using XP don't forget to read this thread on how to set up Windows Firewall for tight protection

What a great link Hazelnut, many thanks, I have printed to PDF for future reference.

 

I am a Windows XP firewall & MSE user also with no issues; they seem to work well with Avast & Spybot. :)

Always With Kind Regards
