    Default What firewall do you use?

    Does anyone still use a firewall and, if so, which one? Please also state what version of Windows you are using.

    Are you expecting firewalls to go out of fashion in the near future?

    Win7 and 8's firewall. Most of the other ones (besides Eset's) crash. Altho, I've never tried this firewall before either

    No firewall, I intentionally disable it on all my machines. The router does NAT, that's enough. I have nothing in my PC getting out that I'd want to stop.

    eset. Thought about just getting nod32, but I figured a firewall would probably come in handy too, so I went for the whole suite.

    Ees good.
