Dan,
You have this picture labeled wrong, It's the JA that uses comodo!

The little girl is cute & has an intelligent look in her eyes, so no doubt she uses PC Tools Firewall Plus. ;)

Personally I liked ZA best, but it is too bloated.  I also like Jetico v1, but M$ updates can't be configured in it.

I don't really care for PCTFW+, but for my RAM starved pc's, I use it.

It's not a like or dislike issue!!!

I see you're still at it. Knocking a product without presenting any proof.
I know it's hard to get proof since there isn't any....  ;D

I feel that CFP's configurable rules have made it most successful. A noob can use default settings and be protected, or, you can tweak it so your own mama can't get in!  ;D

LOL, Neal you're 100% right ! This looks like Mary-go-round...

Oh BTW, PC Tools Firewall... just uninstall it and on next reboot you'll see Windows Security Center reports it's still there... even its design points that this product looks like some unfinished doodle-like-product...

Thx for you posts - i enjoyed reading them. I'd be grateful if someone could explain why they are using them if they have a router. I have used a little firewall called Tiny that is now no longer available. It was quite basic with just a message saying who was trying to contact you i.e. IP address and provider name... i just click on Accept, Deny, or create Formula. I read alot of comments which was that it was the simplest yet most effective firewall. Probably dropped because it didn't have enough 'bells and whistles'. ZoneAlarm by comparison was a poor thing each revision i've tried.

Now with a router it would seem it is redundant - i never get anyone trying to contact.

FYI. In ref to the above post. I was able to find a location for Tiny Personal Firewall, version 2.0.12. Of course it's not supported anymore. To acquire it please go HERE.   :)

Now with a router it would seem it is redundant - i never get anyone trying to contact.

The reason is outbound protection, some of the malware that infects systems downloads more of the same and most hardware routers provide no outbound protection.

Any malware that manages to get past your defences will have free reign to connect to the internet to either download more of the same, pass your personal data (sensitive or otherwise, user names, passwords, keylogger retrieved data, etc.) or open a backdoor to your computer, so outbound protection is essential.

Whilst Tiny might still be available at a number of old-version or archive sites, the important thing is continued development to combat new developments. So which ever you choose you should check them out (grc.com and firewallleaktester.com) with a view to protection and not just light on resources, etc.
