  1. I currently am breaking up whit Nod32 (im tired of the troubles it causes whit Punkbuster and such and his increasing price) so im wondering if some one knows about a good firewall that lets me manually configure all outgoing/incoming connections just like Nod32 firewall in interactive mode does.

    I tried whit Windows Firewall but its more like a "configure then block", so any recomendation would be appreciated :stickout:

    I suggest Comodo firewall.

    Zone Alarm is another consideration.

    Is it better to use one of those as opposed to Windows Firewall?? If I use one of these, I should disable Windows Firewall, right? I also use a Linksys router...I thought these also contained a firewall..

    Yes, you have to disable Windows firewall.

    Windows firewall is a decent firewall, but it's only one way firewall.
    It controls only incoming traffic.
