PC Tools Firewall Plus Comments

Works well on WinXP systems, not on Vista or Win7

Comment by peterstaack
about PC Tools Firewall Plus and Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Vista Jun 2011

Works well on my older WinXP systems, but not so hot on Vista or Win7 (intermittent freezes and sometimes a drain on system resources). On the newer Windows versions, I've been opting for the OS default firewall and another free AV suite, with good results.

Completely useless under win7, works a while then can lock-up the system! AVOID
