I am using the Windows Firewall right now.

But i can recommend to use comodo Firewall alongside with Avast free.

Steven,

What version of Comodo would you recommend? Would you recommend version 5.12? Or would you recommend version 6x?

I would recommend to use the newest version. But when you are encountering errors you can go
back to version 5.12.

Thats not so important but i would install Avast first and then Comodo cause Comodo Firewall could interfear
with the Avast Installation.  ;)

May someone please provide some info to me between these three firewalls and give me an idea which is a stronger firewall and has stronger HIPS built in, and stronger overall? Also please provide me in order from stronger to worse?

Outpost: http://www.computerwoche.de/a/kostenlose-firewalls-im-test,2496056,3
Comodo:http://www.computerwoche.de/a/kostenlose-firewalls-im-test,2496056,4

Choose the custom install for Comodo and disable GeekBuddy, Comodo Dragon.

There are reviews on Youtube.

I'm not sure what you are trying to say, and that doesn't answer all of my questions in my last reply. I'm sorry.

Comodo Firewall v5.12 vs Outpost Firewall Pro vs Outpost Firewall Free?
That's is a very difficult question to answer at best. Since what works best for one is not necessarily the best for someone else.
I have tried OA Free, Private Firewall and Comodo Firewall and found CFW v5.12 works the best for me. Then there are still others who
prefer Outpost Firewall.

May I suggest you do some research before deciding. A Google search of "free firewall reviews" may give you some direction.

I like CFW 5.12. I don't like v6x. Do you run both the Firewall and D+ both in safe mode?
