Filehippo shows there is a free standalone version of outpost. :-\
It seems an outdated firewall but it is there nonetheless. :)
Yes there is the old stand alone version of Outpost Firewall but as you noticed yourself it's outdated and outdated software can be more problems than there worth due to incompatibilities with other software updates and windows patches, it may work for you but the risk is still there.

That post also states at the beginning:

If you are running Windows 7 make sure you got CIS 5.12 ( Firewall and D+ only. No AV ) to have complete control on your outbound connections...

That was the issue between Avast! and Comodo running in W7. No outbound control over program connections.

Yeah it makes sense if only I am using Comodo Firewall. I am asking about windows 7 built in firewall.

I am not referring to Comodo firewall issue at all.

So has this problem been fixed with the release of Comodo 5.12 ?
Can I get a confirmation from someone running Avast! Free Antivirus 7 on Windows 7 with Comodo Firewall Free, that Comodo is able to detect programs trying to connect to the internet ?

I think you would need to install Comodo firewall 6, avast 8 is also now the current release.

For various reasons, I have to stay on Avast 7 for now (actually I'm still running the last version of Avast 6 because of this issue with the Comodo firewall).
And Comodo's last version is still 5.12.

I must be missing something, my Comodo Firewall 5.12 says it's up to date.
I'm using Comodo Firewall Free, not CIS.

Thank you everybody for the download links, but that's not what I asked for.

I just asked a simple question: Avast 7 + Comodo Free Firewall (not CIS) 5.12 + Windows 7 , is the bug still present ?

Ok, I finally figured it out with Comodo's naming scheme, versioning scheme, etc.

So let me update my question:
Avast 7 (last release) + Comodo 6 on Windows 7, is the bug still present ?

I'm using Avast 8 and Comodo 5 under Windows 7, I put a block on IE9 with Comodo (I stick to Chrome these days)

Oddly I found that Google works and brings up results, however attempting to follow any of the Links is blocked by Comodo.
Unless as I had Chrome open The Google search was able to get out via this??
