Free 30 day full featured evaluation
For Windows
- 2000 Professional (desktop version)
- XP Home
- XP Professional
- XP Media Center Edition  Download Sunbelt Personal Firewall
We plan on releasing a Vista compatible version in the near future
Sunbelt Personal Firewall 4 can run in a free mode vs. a full (paid) mode. Install it now, and for the first 30 days it will run in 'full' mode. After that, it shuts down selected features, but will continue to run in 'free' mode".
don't know how much you get as far as protection in the free mode ???
comodo is free and full protection ;)

Almost as much as the pro, without the bells & whistles.

Sunbelt PF is MUCH easier than Comodo & more user friendly (in my opinion, off course).

Exactly the same firewall protection, just without all the BSOD's the HIPS module gives you, and the web filtering capability, which the evil Adblock can provide in Firefox. (Muahahah!)

Sunbelt are practically giving the firewall away at the moment anyway: 10$- that's two beers in the pub here.

Just my opinion on a Firewall. I am using P.C.Tools Plus F.W., version 2.0.0.25 and am very pleased with the program. Very user friendly and not alot of popups etc.  Does well at the grc site also.  :)

not a bad firewall at all-used before-pctools makes good software-its just seeing some of those leak test reports and others had me go back to comodo ;)
