    Tried my Windows 7 firewall, 64bit IE9, with TinyWall Firewall and it scored higher than the Comodo Firewall and the standard Windows 7 firewall in a test. Used Comodo Firewall tester and GRC leaktest . :thumbs_up: :redface: No Pop-ups using the Tiny Wall firewall since it enhances the standard Windows 7 firewall. Very quiet.
    210 score for the standard Win7 , 240 with the Tiny Wall. 230 for the Comodo :confused:
    This was 'out of the box' test, no fine tuning or a lot of time playing with them. Only letting the 'learning mode' do the initial learning.

    Download Comodo HIPS and Firewall test suite

    TinyWall - A free, lightweight and non-intrusive firewall

    You make me think. I have Avast Internet Security, and I got 200.

    Have you tried Shields Up, ttps://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 ?

    Anyways, very welcome "private enterprise tests". Much obliged. :)

    I pasted everything except the 'PING' test. But no matter how I set the firewall, I still get a ping, even different brands of firewalls :confused:
    I don't worry since a 'PING' is nothing to worry about anyway, see link below....

    Firewall Doesn’t Block “Ping”
