Been using this for a few years, have not needed an anti virus at all. Sometimes use a free one to scan suspect files.

This has saved me from a few java exploits and some other bs.

Also there is a built in IP Filter blocker.

If you've got the patience to learn this program you won't need another one ever again.

This is beta 2.
The most current beta is found on http://www.agnitum.com/lp/outpost-7-5-beta.php

And the 7.5 betas are very unstable and weird with lots of functions removed (that will return in later betas).
I strongly suggest anyone not familiar with Agnitum products to skip the 7.5 betas altogether.

I tried the latest fw pro and the free version. Both consume cpu via that pos acs.exe file at an extreeeme rate I have never seen in previous versions. The latest comodo pro free gui is (finally!) working like a champ and even gets a much better score on matousec.
Weirder still, outpost blocked IE net access when dns was disabled. ce la ve

I agree. I have tried them all and have always gone back to this as it simply does the job without complaint.
And the free version was very recently updated.

I've found Outpost to be stable in all of the platforms I have used it (XP Pro SP1-3, Vista 32 & 64-bit, as well as Windows 7 RC1 32 & 64-bit). The protection it offers is top notch, however (as others have stated) somewhat bloated. That is, bloated if you do not disable certain components that are enabled by default. These componenets include: Anit-Spyware Protection, Host Protection, Self-Protection, & Logging (this last one is optional but will free up some RAM if disabled). If you disable the unnecessary components (unnecessary for experienced users), your firewall will no longer be bloated, but will continue to offer the superior protection Outpost has to offer. I would not, however, recommend this firewall for older or slow computers. If your computer is 5 years old or newer you should be good to go. I currently have it on all my systems, configured as mentioned above, and I can confirm that it is working smoothly and have yet to see it cause any issues of instability, as others have claimed. On my older computers, however, I used to prefer to use Comodo, as it is lighter on resources, but have since transitioned to Outpost without complication.

I liked this thing a lot a year ago, but there doesn't seem to be any way to turn off the "news" which is nothing but a built-in adware module. I HATE advertising.

Scored well on Matousec, though! Back to COMODO....

Boy, did this bloat out over the years. 24Mb for a firewall is inexcusable, especially one as unstable as this has become. It used to be great, but now... just use Comodo.

Bought this last year, am computer savy myself and its pants. Bloated beyond beleive, crashing issues and for the newbee unforgiving. It does provide excellent security, but the crashes and extreme growthof install kills it.

I now use avira security suite, does the job:)

I find it to be stable, and it coexists well with Adaware, etc. It seems to be quite graceful and light on resources, for me.

I really like the ability to completely unload the resident program and service while in a safe environment for off-line game playing or music work.

I rated it the closest # to its current adverage. Outpost use to be the best then it went wrong somewhere. Default installs frequently crash, our consistanly freeze then unfreeze, blocking all traffic when it does. It's also become bloated, and I think they abandoned their free version a long time ago (a vista ver would be nice). Hopefully they'll eventually straighten up, but I doubt it. I didn't try this latest build, I've used to many dissapointing updates to try every last one.

Face it:

Folks who write negatively about super products have NEVER installed nor used that product - they ain't got the brains. If they did install one, they probably crapped it out to mirror the image of themselves - a turd.
