Recommended software firewalls for Windows XP?
« on: April 01, 2009, 05:46:12 PM »
Hello everyone:

A few years ago, I started using Comodo as my software firewall and companion to Avast.  I'm sure everyone knows the problems they had with their updates about a year ago.  I uninstalled Comodo and have only been using the standard Windows XP firewall since.

Is this sufficient protection or should I re-consider Comodo again (hopefully they have fixed the problems) or is there another free (and better) program out there?  I never really did find Comodo very user-friendly.

Thanks!
