Critical Online Security

In this day and age, sophisticated PC security is required, including antivirus (http://www.webroot.com/consumer/products/antivirus/index.html), antispyware (http://www.webroot.com/resources/spywareinfo/antispyware.html) and firewall protection. Webroot Desktop Firewall provides the critical protection you need to keep your PC safe from unauthorized access.
Webroot Desktop Firewall is an integrated desktop firewall and multi-layer intrusion prevention software solution which helps protect against identity and data theft, hackers, and other types of unauthorized access to your PC. Its multiple layers of security include desktop firewall, port manager, URL filter, process monitor, and application/system anomaly detection. This layered approach to firewall defense and intrusion prevention addresses the Windows vulnerabilities that hackers exploit to gain unauthorized system access and steal private information. Combined with Webroot’s intuitive interface, Webroot Desktop Firewall delivers powerful protection that is easy to use.
Makes your computer invisible on the Internet

Hackers won't see you because Webroot Desktop Firewall cloaks your computer's identity or IP address on the Internet, making it invisible to others and reducing the risk of intrusion or attack.
Monitors and protects all Internet traffic to and from your computer

Monitor all Internet traffic to and from your PC and blocks harmful or suspicious activity. It even prevents trusted applications from being "hijacked" to steal personal files. Windows Firewall only monitors traffic into your PC leaving you exposed if a Trojan or BOT is already operating on your machine.
Learning Firewall means fewer interruptions during PC use

Webroot Desktop Firewall doesn't bother you with a lot of pop up screens during configuration. It "learns" what normal application or connection activity occurs on your PC and alerts you to unusual or suspicious behavior. You can define additional rules for specific applications or connection types if you choose.
Powerful security that's easy to use

Most users won't need to interact with the program very much because Webroot Desktop Firewall works silently in the background and only alerts you when attention is needed. If action is required, you don't have to be a security expert to respond. Webroot Desktop Firewall's intuitive interface is easy to understand and provides instant access to important information.
Windows Vista compatible

Webroot Desktop Firewall is fully compatible with the Windows Vista operating system. It provides superior protection to the basic firewall features found in Windows XP and Vista, and will not cause conflicts with those features. In addition, Webroot's firewall technology is fully integrated with the Windows Security Center for added convenience.

First you have to register to get your download code. I hate it when companies do that. Second, the firewall couldn't even initiate after install. That's probably because I have a proxy on IE leading to remote address Can't possibly be driver conflicts, because I have nothing else installed.
End of test. )))
