    Installed on day of giveaway and was fine for a bit, however It now takes ages to do anything and constantly flags Nvidia dll's (mostly the same one) and states they are 4/5 or 5/5 dangerous, ignoring all remember this is safe indications I tell it. Uninstalled after it told for the 35th time the dll was unsafe and would I like to allow it and I'll remember it is.

    When I try to add the license code, it says something like "Entered license key is incorrect; please buy a new one."

    BTW also on their product home page:

    "Minimum Requirements

    Microsoft Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10
    .NET Framework 4.5 - Download"

    Note it says it supports Vista... I did install it under Vista and it runs without error but since I already have a satisfactory GUI for windows firewall that forfills all my firewall per executable control needs I removed it before it could chew up my pre-existing firewall rules with its own.

    Their product home page states:

    "Compatible

    Xvirus Personal Firewall is designed to be compatible with Windows Firewall! "

    One never runs TWO discrete firewalls one will always take precidence or they will conflict. UNLESS one is a GUI for the other which lacks a user friendly GUI. I suspect that this is NOT a firewall program in itself since it installs no ring0 filters or drivers and is simply a single .NET executable with a few .db database files of rules. I suspect this is a GUI and set of new rules for the windows firewall to enable more granular control of the outbound and inbound packets on a per application/process basis. If so I'd much prefer the ones I use Privatefirewall 7.0 on Vista and Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control 6.4 on Windows 10 which are always free and have proven themselves to be stable.

    A couple of quick notes:

    I haven't downloaded this, so can't comment on it specifically, but the vast majority of Windows 10 "firewalls" are just front end controls for the existing Windows 10 firewall, which can do all sorts of decent stuff when you can talk to it. I don't know if this is that or not.

    The other note is that there is no way, NO WAY, to be connected to the Internet and prevent the backdoor Microsoft uses to send a ton of your personal info to its servers. Since they control the OS, they can do just about anything with the outbound connections, and as they hoover endless info from your machine about your software, your browsing, your emails, pretty much everything you do, nothing currently exists to stop them from doing so.

    Those freeware programs that claim to 'protect your privacy from Microsoft' are just nonsense. Yes, they stop a small amount of data from going out, but nothing can stop the wholesale theft of your info by Microsoft - it takes place far too deep inside the Win10 OS.

    Why do you suppose it is that the disk access light on WIN10 desktop machines NEVER stops blinking from the instant you first boot WIN10?

    Reply   |   Comment by dd  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+19)

    dd, you ask why the disk access light never stops blinking on WIn10, the answer is the same reason as it never stops blinking on ALL versions of Windows NT... The event logging keeps writing pointless informational events to the system harddrive for ever and ever plus any discrete logging that may have been enabled by user/admin preferences. The last Windows to ever let a system drive spin down due to inactivity was Windows ME. A little knowledge and a dose of paranoia is a wounderful way to grow conspiracy "theories".

    dd, Now you know why a lot, like me, stick with W7.

    Reply   |   Comment by Terry I.  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

    Privacy is nothing but an illusion, and with Windows 10 the EULA clearly gives Microsoft full rights to all the users files (take the time to read, you'll be amazed, you give up all your rights!).

    Reply   |   Comment by Leonard  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

    TK, I disagree. I've been running Windows since 3.1, and before 10 I had three desktops here running 7 Pro, and none of them kept the disk access light blinking incessantly when nothing was happening.

    The drive doesn't have to 'spin down' for the access light to stop strobing. Besides which, is anyone still using a spinning boot drive with SSD prices so low? If so, why?

    I may not be a coding genius, but I have more than a little knowledge and a dose of paranoia. Since you have no idea who I am or what I do, I found that comment insulting.

    Is an antivirus without updates worth even installing? It could be outdated within a minute without updates.

    Dr Ronald Lechner, it monitors outgoing IP connections, it's up to you to determine what is good or not = "not an antivirus program"

    Reply   |   Comment by Daniel B  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

    Dr Ronald Lechner, quite right but what has that got to do with a firewall or a GUI to the windows firewall?

    Ignoring that fact you are writing about a completely different product there are differnces between PROGRAM updates which if it were a giveaway, is usually not available under giveaway terms and pattern updates that may be available for as long as they are compatible with the giveaway version...

    Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

    Dr Ronald Lechner,

    You are correct, an anti-virus would be quite useless without updates. This, however, is NOT an anti-virus, it is a firewall. If you do not know the difference, I'd suggest you research the difference between the two so you don't get yourself a false sense of security by not understanding the purpose of this software.

    I expect to receive hundreds of Thumbs Down for this comment because, rather than correcting someone elses critique of how he/she feels the interface looks, and getting lots of thumbs up for so doing, I thought I might actually comment on the program offered here.

    From what I can tell this has a pretty small footprint and one thing it does nicely is monitor any 'Phone home' behaviour of any software. It also asks if you wish to allow, for example,. a program software update (Which depending on the program in question, might or might not be unwanted).


    NOT good is the fact that there are loads of settings that can be altered but doesn't give any idea of what or how so a lot of guesswork needed.

    Best thing is this works alongside any 'Firewall' as this is designed to be an addition to the service carried out by your existing firewall.

    I shall leave it running for now, but it seems to have more going for it than against - so far.

    No Email needed to register - simple as it gets. Just copy/paste the code given into box which opens when button bottom left is clicked. Happy Days,

    Terry I., I hope you are not dissapointed, you have +20 useful votes so far. How many firewalls have you tried it alongside? Their website only states it is compatible with Windows Firewall not "any Firewall" I suspect it works purely as a GUI to the Windows Firewall to provide more granular rule control.

    The initial download is 1.07MBytes NOT the shown 101KBytes in the information panel.

    Do not forget to uncheck "Enable Automatic Updates" in general settings once you have activated this giveaway. Note I would not recommend something like a 3rd party firewall from a giveaway that prohibits free updates since it is possible a security problem could prompt a critical update that the giveaway participant would not be entitled to for free and because they should disable automatic updates they likely will never be made aware the firewall has become unsafe.

    Would love to see it portable for use in less secure environments (my main concern)! Only ZoneAlarm offers software or application control, so it's amazing to find another one that does so as well and it's a massive resource hog.

    This software is out of date.

    The UI needs updating
    The firewall list needs to be searchable
    Options are needed to find the source file or app that is calling home.
    There needs to be a better block on the block a call home (e.g. "for this session," i.e. remove firewall entry on power down to allow installation of software and then block)
    The ability to block by application I.e. "Click to Run" has about 10 separate calls to MS and each one must be blocked.

    Overall it is more cumbersome than MS Defender. And, if you are willing to take the time to check each call home, it is superior in many ways to defender.

    If there is a better alternative to this, I.e. a better UI more tools and better firewall I would switch. But I still use it with it's defects.

    There is more but it

    sid, you sure you mean one dimensional? that is an infinitly thin single line! Surely you mean 2 dimensional as in having an X and Y axis but no depth or simulated curves in the controls and borders?

    The scroll bars seem to be simulated 3D shaped in the giveaways screen shot... not FLAT. what was it you wanted? The data rendered onto the sides of a spinning 3D dodecahedron?

    As far as I know, Windows has a firewall that is also enabled.

    Reply   |   Comment by Andre Millot  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+24)

    Andre Millot, true ever since XP SP2 I think windows has had a built in firewall but to be a one size fits all the default policies are to always allow outbound connections from any process and to block by default inbound connections on new processes. anything more secure tends to cause problems with the less computer savvy users which is the vast majority of microsofts target customer base. It can be changed with 3rd party GUI's that provide varying degrees of control. something like TinyFirewall I believe if memory serves me right defaults to blocking outbound connections unless the user changes the settings for each process individually but the devloper has chosen to NEVER inform the user it has blocked an outbound connection attempt so the user never knows in advance tht any given program NEEDS an outbound conenction to operate e.g. the setup.exe/gcd package needs an internet conenction to validate a giveaway. I personally use on Vista PrivateFirewall 7.0 GUI on top of windows firewall which does give notifications of blocked attempts at outboud connections so one can make a choice there and then to allow further connection attempts or temp allow all outbound attempts for a short time to get the program installed or activted. Under Windows 10 I use MalwareBytes Windows Firewall Control which performs much the same functions both are free and make the windows firewall a complete personal firewall for the slightly more tech savvy user. And certainly ad less bloat that trying to redesign ones own 3rd party pattern part wheel of a firewall and like introduce new bugs and vulnerabilities yet to be discovered... though of course with microsoft there is always the potential for yet to be discovered ancient bugs discovered as new vulnerabilities LOL
    FOr XP the firewall was only capable of inbound packet control but with the advent of Vista and above the possibility of outbound packet control as well as inbound packet control was added.

    TK,
    Do refer to BiniSoft.org for the Windows 10 firewall add on? Malwarebytes does not show anything about a firewall app. I found the BiniSoft app on TechSpot.

    TK, If anyone's interested in the windows 10 compatible Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control... it's NOT listed on the malwarebytes site but is on the https://www.binisoft.org/wfc.php sites page which was bought up by Malwarebytes.
