Hey dacoolest !!
Welcome to PCWorld Community !
If you would like a break down of Firewall efficiency then, read what Gizmo has to say
about Firewalls (Free Ones). http://www.techsuppo...ee-firewall.htm
Also, If you would like to read about how they did in independent testing then, read
about it on the Matousec site . They test all Firewall and post the results for everyone
to read : http://www.matousec....nge/results.php .
Once you have settled on one , go to grc.com to test your set up. Their tests will show
whether the Firewall you have installed has all of it's ports Stealthed .
Just click on one of the "Shields-Up Services" to start the testing of your Firewall.

I used to like Comodo Firewall but have stayed away after an incident I experienced months ago. I wanted to try different firewalls and had an extremely difficult time uninstalling Comodo, and it would not let me uninstall it. After I finally got it removed, I couldn't access the internet because the NIC inside Windows had been altered. Thanks, Comodo!
I remember sending in a support ticket about my issue, and the tech-support people didn't know what was going on. So... is it at your own risk

Top Recommendation would also be for the FREE PC
Tools Firewall Plus program . When asking for
recommedations for programs, best to give the
specifics of your Operating System .
