    Firewall

    I was using a great stand alone 'free' firewall called Neowatch. It of course is not compatible with Vista 64 bit. Anyone know a good free firewall? I don;t need anything like anti virus or spyware blocker, just a firewall.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Netwrkwoman, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    The free Commodo Firewall Pro is a great one to have. You will just need to make sure that Windows Firewall is turned off, or uninstall any other 3rd party firewall program you had instead, first before installing it.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
