What firewall should i use with Avast! free?Any help is welcome.
There is nothing wrong with the Windows firewall if you want a free solution, other than that you can use Google to search the net for firewall reviews or look on the Wilders security forum.

Tinywall is a useful control interface for Windows Firewall.

It doesn't really matter what tag they've decided to attach, there hasn't been an update to PrivateFirewall in over a year so claiming Win10 compatibility is false and misleading.

Your choice to use if you want but you have been warned.

As I said it's your choice, I certainly wouldn't be using software that no longer seems supported.

Especially when the Windows 10 firewall does an excellent job and is totally trouble free. :)

Via Avast Ticket: #MCN-504-92599 we found out that my problems with internet and downloads in Vista was a collision between Avast 10.3.2225 and HitmanPro Alert.
As far a I know this problem was not analized.
So we now do not know if this is a bug in Avast or HitmanPro Alert of both.
I got only this answer:
####

We do not recommend you to use more than one security application on one computer. This can cause a lot of conflict.
You should uninstall HitmanPro.
Anyway, new program version has been released this week Avast 2015 R4 beta 1 (build number 2015.10.4.2227).

 AVAST Software s.r.o.

####
So they do not even know the difference between HitmanPro and  HitmanPro Alert

In this answer it is suggested to test the problem in my Vista system with 10.4.2227.

MartinZ,
In your list of changes I do not see anything that has to do with my problem in Vista.
Can you approve that in Avast 10.4.2227 something is changed in relation to my severe problem.

Hitman pro uses very low level drivers and may well conflict with Avasts low level drivers.  There is no difference between HitmanPro and  HitmanPro Alert

@ Be Secure   Private Firewall is no longer supported for Win10. There are no plans at this time for further development of PFW.
                      This is information I received via email from Privacyware about a month before Win10 was released.

I reported a long time ago that HitmanPro actually kills Avast. Apparently it's still happening.  :'(

I'm curious, do you know what kind of product HitmanPro.Alert is?
