No free version. period. Even if you try do download "Free Version", it is still a 30 day trial. Piece of crap.

# Limitations = Yes - 30 day timeout

I thought applications listed as freeware did not have such limitations

Using v. 5.0.0.1097 and pleased thus far. Used the advanced install, which was straightforward. The interface is clean enough, though better integration with the Windows 7 api would be nice. Having said that, the free edition provides plenty of useful information quickly, and has not hassled me with popups or pleas to purchase upgrades... yet. Uses approx. 15 GB RAM at system idle on my machine.

WOW...so many complaints.

*It does not slow the computer unduly - If your computer has slowed after installing this, you must have already been running close to the limit of your RAM

*It is not overly talkative - Default settings produce very minimal pop-ups. Higher settings will [of course] create more messages.

One of the very best...and it's free!!

- Installed need email address & internet conection. You cant installed without that. :(
- Startup is very slow...
- No Sandbox feature !? (Comodo does have)
- Autorun Protection Limited ! why?
- No mail shield/Protection ! (Every free firewall does have this)

I have been using this firewall for about the past 4 versions.
I dumped Comodo because it was WAY too bloated.
I personally CANNOT see why all thses people are complaining about this program "slowing their computer and internet down". I have an OLD machine (AMD K6(2)-450MHz with 384MB RAM, an old 16MB video card, and Windows XP with SP2 (cannot use SP3 it caused issues)).
So if this program would slow down a computer I would DEFINITELY notice it, AND IT DOES NOT SLOW IT DOWN AT ALL. PERIOD.
Personally I think it is their LACK of config'ing it right or some other software that does not play nice with it.
This program works like a CHAMP on my system.

Made my system slow and unstable. Like the filter-by-country feature.

I'm not seeing all the high CPU utilization mentioned here.
I removed CIS because of the bloat/impact of late and moved over to OA because of the high ratings. I DID take the time up front to configure it correctly. The initial learning phase for things like unregistered "portable" apps on the system is minimal if you answer the questions correctly.
