Best firewall compatible with Trend Micro Internet Security?


Recommended Posts

I have Trend Micro Internet Security which I thought included a firewall, I found out that it does not  :-(   Now I am trying to find a good firewall that will not conflict with Trend Micro, any recommendations?

Apparently Zone Alarm free would conflict with it according to info on the Zone Alarm website.

With windows xp 32 bit, I have used Outpost free firewall ver. 6.5.1 for years.  Works with later windows versions but I haven't tried it.  

It has "autolearn mode".  Autolearn mode will remember any allowed connections made while it is active.  You can turn autolearn on or off anytime.  

 

Still available at Filehippo:

What about the build-in Windows firewall ? I assume it's still running without "Razz" knowing it. At least, I have seen many people who installed a Anti virus program with a Firewall but overlooked the fact that the Windows Firewall was still running. In other words, they had 2 Firewalls running.

Thank you login and Hazel, I really appreciate your input (as always) and I'll check out both today - I'll post what I decide later.  EDIT: Hazel, do you know if you get a free version with the Glasswire Free download, or are you required to upgrade after a trial period?

 

 

Willy2: I realize that Windows firewall is running (and with no conflicts) but as far as I know, Windows Firewall only guards incoming traffic, not outgoing traffic. In other words it would not stop malicious traffic from leaving your PC and communicating with the evil behind it.  Naturally the object is to not have any malicious activity on your PC in the first place.

I'd imagine like all other security software that it was made to be compatible with Windows Firewall.

 

Windows Firewall not having any outbound control, true however you can also use a HOSTS file that's tailored for blocking just malicious sites such as the MalwareDomainList HOSTS file, etc.
