    Nice one. Not a huge fan myself as it's a little bit bloatier than the ZA of good old, however wonderful for some haphazard users and people who survive on ignorance and lack of protection

    Good deal in that it's free, but does anyone actually still use a third party firewall if they're not behind a router?

    I fail to see the point, myself.

    Didn't get that here, just an email with the licence (misspelled) and download link.


    I know, I'm a pedant

    Don't know what you clicked on to get a prompt for your card but I've had me email with the link and I've downloaded it already.

    Commodo is better. To be honest though i rarely use more than Windows Firewall anymore and have not had any virus reported on my Antivirus for years. Could ditch both but i have 8gb ram and a quad core so it does not hurt my performance. If you are sensible online and don't click random links in email messages to dodgy sites then you should not need to bother. Basic Windows Firewall and Router is enough for me.
