I don't like the pre-installed McAfee stuff, so when it started asking for money I removed it.
I then realised that there are only a handful of free firewalls that run on Windows 7, and my usual (Online Armor) doesn't work. My machine is 64-bit. I reluctantly intalled Zone Alarm which is fine. On XP it was very hungry on resources, but it seems to be ok now.
I then read some stuff on the web which said that the Windows Firewall was fine. I turned off Zone Alarm, which automatically turned on my Windows Firewall. However, it fails the Leak Test on grc.com (which of course Zone Alarm passes easily).
The question is, does anyone know if there are any Advanced Settings I can tweak within Windows Firewall so that it passes the Leak Test on Outbound connections? I'd like to be able to remove Zone Alarm and just use the Windows firewall, but if it fails the Leak Test then I'll have to keep Zone Alarm.
I'm also using AVG 9 free which seems fine.
Thanks in advance.
