In previous versions of Windows, there was either no native firewall supplied with the OS or what was provided was extremely buggy, insecure, and intrusive. As of Windows 7, the OS provided firewall was upgraded to be robust and secure but was extremely difficult to configure and manage.

Unlike previous versions, the native firewall in Windows is now actually secure and lightweight. But using it is so difficult for many people that it's actually easier to install a different firewall to replace it than it is to get the native one to work. That's is a shame, because that native firewall is very tightly coupled with the operating system, and is actually very good.

WFC is not a firewall itself. What WFC does is to provide a wrapper around the existing firewall functionality already built into Windows and provides a sane, usable, and much more intuitive interface to the native firewall. The benefit of this approach is that there are no compatibility issues and there are no performance issues.

A properly configured firewall should be secure, but something you don't think about, and don't notice unless there's an issue. With WFC, the native firewall in Windows finally reaches this level.

The main problem with windows firewall is that is an absolute pain to configure. This makes it super easy. It even has a bullseye like mode where you can just click on the program you want to allow. A+ program right here.

I can't recommend this tiny application enough. If you use the built-in Windows firewall, this application will allow you to take full control of it. The application is free but has a few things disabled in free mode. To unlock all the features and be able to have unlimited installs on unlimited machines, you'll have to provide a very small $10 donation. That is an absolute steal by what all you can do with this little gem!

Donate $10 to the developer and unlock this powerful Windows firewall companion! In my opinion, it's worth way more than $10.

My Rating: 10/10

Its quite simple to use and I like how it does the popups for blocked applications etc.. Real light weight too ! I didn't really want to install a 3rd party firewall as the Windows 7 firewall works. Its just a pain to configure and has some weird method of only showing pop-ups for blocked items sometimes.

This acts more like an addon than anything else ! Helps you control that windows built-in firewall. I'm surprised this doesn't come bundled with Windows :P

Just perfect!
