Hi, @tears
Avast Antivirus, the free version. It's best free firewall application for me so far.

Hi @tears
Everyone, will have firewall in their PC. As it being supplied as one of the mandatory software with any type of modern o/s.

I use quick heal antivirus. It manages the firewall settings.

Nope, I'm only one who protect my PC.
There no antivirus, no firewall, even no windows firewall active firewall.
Sometime's is better protect PC without antivirus.

If you really want to protect your computer, I suggest you turning off your firewall and install a third party Antivirus

Yes. I use Windows Firewall.

Different from other suggestions, I don't recommend turning off your firewall. To explain, a firewall is basically a software that filters all incoming and outgoing communications to or from your computer. Each software has its own preferred port. Different software might use the same port, or might create its own port of communication [to the internet]. It is very dangerous to turn off your Firewall since you won't have a security check when a software creates its own port.

An advantage of a firewall is that it filters communication without consuming a significant amount of processing or memory.

For compatibility, use Windows Defender, the free and reliable antivirus from Microsoft.

Yes, I do. I use the windows defender.
Here are some pros and cons:

+ Mostly no compatibility problems
+ It is lightweight
+ For normal use of the PC you are protected enough
+ It is free and easy to use

- For companys or other important works on your PC you should get another Firewall; recommended to use NO freeware
- Not every attack to your PC is averted.
- Just base funktions.

I hope I could help you!

P.S.: I use the defender over years and I got never attacked, so i very trust it!

Yes, right now my firewall is by BullGuard. I still have 2 years left on my account there. It works OK, no compatibility problems. Additionally, I also use MalwareBytes & MalwareBytes Anti-Exploit. I recommend both of those programs.

It's great that many security softwares have free or trial versions to use them to check them out.

Avast free antivirus or Windows Defender do not have a firewall application. Windows firewall is sufficient to me since I access internet via wifi which has a hardware firewall. If u want more protection try Comodo free firewall. It has a lot of advanced features. But it may also slow down u'r net.

Have been using ZoneAlarm for years, their free version is the best safety device you can use. Anti-virus programs are NOT firewalls! (I use Malwarebytes Pro as a spyware defence, & ZoneAlarm comes with a great anti-virus program). I loved the product so much, I forked out for their Extreme Security as soon as I could afford it

The best choice for me has always been ZoneAlarm (the FREE version).
A paid version is also available, which is probably even better.
