Great software. Uses 20 of 400 megabytes of RAM on my machine. Small footprint and low resource usage. Great options for firewalling / blocking also. Great software

Good Firewall. Small, effective, low resource requirement, work fine when Emule is running (Zonealarm's VSMON caused a very high cpu load)

Must say pctools firewall plus rocks the free firewall world.With its latest version 7 pctools firewall plus performed very well with 10+ score in moustec test.Uses less pc resource only 5MB,no annoying pup-ups,doesn't slow down the pc,minimum conflicts with antispyware and antivirus programs,most simple user interface in firewall category and most of all it v7 contains HIPS similar to that of comodo.'USE IT TO BELIEVE IT'.4.7/5.VERY GOOD.

Used to like this firewall. But the latest version, 7.0.0.111, produces an error with Microsoft Office and some other programs. If you click on an office document file like .doc, the firewall issues the error "There was a problem sending the command to the program." This error also occurs if you try to open a webpage by clicking on a link in a program's helpfile.

This is a nice lightweight firewall. It would be nice to have a few more configuration options like granting access by time of day or specific protocol. But on the positive side, I haven't experienced any of the BSD reported by some other users with any version of PCTools, unlike my past experience with Outpost and Comodo. But I mostly do clean installs of firewalls after testing on a spare PC. They're too important to be larded on on top of older firewalls.

I SERIOUSLY recommend you stick with comodo internet security as it includes both firewall and antivirus protection as well a many other protection tools.... I'll admit I've never had to use them all ... but at least they're there... if you're not stupid in terms of compuer terminology than go with comodo please for your own sake

Wow! SysremRestore is awesome. :P Had to use it after I installed not the beta but the actual normal version from their website. :P

PCT Firewall had its beginnings as a clone of Look'n'Stop FW. PCTFW has since added several "anti-leak" HIPS-type checks so as to improve its scores on Matousec's tests.

PCTFW is a good, light, effective FW with better-than-average Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI).

NOTE: PCTFW does not require a restart during installation. Therefore you can painlessly take this beta for a test drive while in Shadow Mode (via Shadow Defender or Returnil or similar apps).

Gave me my first ever blue screen before install finished. This is on a fresh Win7 install.
Restored image backup. Didn't want to waste time to try to uninstall.

Testing, so far so good
I hope I finally found a descent firewall
And hopefully they will keep it as good as it looks now, small footprint, not nagging all the time, efficient and free.
Will post in a while to tell how it went.
