Firewall question...Remember Sygate?

#1
Well firstly hello, its been a long time since I posted on here...in fact it seems a lifetime ago.

So i`ve finally moved from XP to Windows 7 and I need to install a firewall but would like one similar to Sygate which is now dead, any suggestions?.

I like to see what data is being uploaded/downloaded and with a single click.

Thanks.

I use comodo on my personal machines, it's very good, extremely thorough, but it might drive you nuts while it 'learns' your system, so you do have to put some time into configuring it, which could easily be too much for the average ebay user/facebook junkie. Also, pay attention to each install screen, don't just install it with your brain on autopilot, it has optional toolbars & features you may or may not want (likely not).
Anyway, the end result is a pretty good firewall.

The free comodo security suite is pretty decent imo as well.

I remember sygate and "tiny" firewall, man they were great, if my memory is serving correctly (which doesn't happen too often anymore), I was the person that introduced those firewalls to this board many generations ago...at least that's the x-perience I remember

anyway, I believe most of the firewalls went out of business or became unavailable once we started reading reports that the government wanted a back door to all firewalls

while that story seemed un-doable it was a little too coincidental that the firewall industry from independent programmers went under right after that

WIndows firewall is all you need. If you insist on one, the new zone alarm is pretty nice. I never thought I would say that ?
