Webroot Desktop Firewall Free

Webroot Desktop Firewall is an easy-to-use, two-way, "smart" firewall which protects you against identity and data theft, hackers, and other unauthorized access to your PC.

A computer without a firewall is easy prey for hackers, worms, remote access Trojans and other online threats. Anti-spyware and virus protection are only a part of any security solution. A firewall is a critical component, and Webroot Desktop Firewall secures your computer from Internet threats and reduces the risks of being a victim of online crimes. Unlike the Windows XP and Vista Firewall, Webroot Desktop Firewall combines intelligent firewall technology with intrusion prevention for inbound and outbound protection that is both powerful and easy to use.

Designed for novices and experts alike, Webroot Desktop Firewall is the gatekeeper to your PC.

* Monitors Internet traffic in and out of your PC for better protection
* Makes your PC invisible to online scammers looking for easy targets
* Prevents remote access Trojans from hijacking your PC

What's New in Version 5.5

* New intelligent, "learning" firewall. It "watches" what you do; then learns from your activity to only interrupt you for abnormal activity.
* Windows Vista Compatible. Version 5.5 provides superior protection to the basic firewall features found in Windows XP and Vista, and will not cause conflicts with those features.
* Stronger multi-layer intrusion prevention. Its multiple layers of security include desktop firewall, port manager, URL filter, process monitor, and application/system anomaly detection.

I agree with you on that I have been using it on my XP machine for years and it really been the best I have found so far. The Vista version is still in BETA and I am going to wait until they finalize it before I install it on this machine with Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit. On my XP machine I also use Comodo Anti Virus which I think is very good also. Haven't had any sort of infection since I have been using both on my XP machine.

I use it with Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit and it does as well as others that I have tried. Making vague comments with no supporting info is unfounded. All of the supposedly literate Computer Guru's make the most unsupported accessments of software with no folllowup information.

Why did you make this comment? Where is the proof other than your word? What may not work for one can work for others. Remember " An empty wagon makes the most noise." :sleeping:
