Yes it is but there are some that feel it is now bloated and it doesn't score to highly in some firewall leak tests.

Your welcome.

- There are many freeware firewalls such as, Comodo, PCTools Firewall Plus, Jetico, etc. - Zone Alarm free works fine with avast and has a reasonably friendly user interface, however, the free version is becoming bloated with trial ware and is also crippled as far as outbound protection goes In the Program Control, configuration area, the slider will only goes as far as Medium protection, if you want more you have to buy the Pro version.

See some firewall tests for comparison, some are freeware but many are paid for versions http://www.firewallleaktester.com/tests.php. Also see http://www.thefreecountry.com/security/firewalls.shtml
Also see http://www.matousec.com/projects/windows-personal-firewall-analysis/leak-tests-results.php later set of results

Hi David ,
             Thanks for the info on firewalls . I did read  some disturbing info on ZoneAlarms V7 free firewall , seems that it needs an upgrade . Also noticed that Comodo's Free firewall was at the top of most lists . Does Avast Home Edition 4.7 free work well with Comodo ?

Thanks for any imput on this .


                                     regards
