Firewall that will work with Vista 64
Actually I have two questions:

Will Webroot Spysweeper 5.5 work ok with Vista

Other than Symantec can someone recommend a firewall that works ok
with Vista?

What's wrong with Vista's own FW/packet filter?

Re: Firewall that will work with Vista 64

Spysweeper is not yet vista x64 compatible. No telling if they will
patch it to work on x64 since the majority of the retail customers that
purchase it use x86

However Trend Internet Security is. And from my experiences it works
flawless.

It does not catch outgoing very well. This is a well known fact.

It does if you configure it.

That depends entirely upon how one configures it.

"Well known" only to those who don't know Vista.

There are two interfaces for Vistas built-in firewall:

1) A simplified one accessed through the Control Panel that is the only
one most people see. Sphinx's Vista Firewall Control
http://sphinx-soft.com/Vista/) is a piece of freeware that makes the
Vista Firewall much more useful to the average user.

2) And the more advanced "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security
(WF.msc), accessed via the Start Menu's Administrative Tools folder, for
the experienced user who wants more granular control.
