I have MS firewall, would this inhance my protection?
Jeffrey, I've never used it myself but according to the developers site this firewall is an additional layer of protection which works with Windows 32/64 bit computers - see this link for more feature details: http://www.privacyware.com/personal_firewall_features.html

Started using this a couple of months ago.  Protection rating is moving up the charts fast.


Using a firewall is a training process, and what I like about PF is that it doesn't hide this fact.  That and also all the protections are there.  Yeah, you'd have to be a complete IT god to know what each protection option for a program/process is,, but PF makes it simple to choose how to protect for noobs like me with solid default options.  Also, things are easy to find with this firewall.  Help is solid too.  Totally unpretentious and user friendly as firewalls go.  4+++++ from me.

Head up on PF.  It fails the Gibson test which checks to see if a malicious process can rename itself to the name of a whitelisted process and then establish a connection using that process' permission.  I ran the test myself.  I think the only free firewall that passed the test was Zone Alarm.  Might be switching, especially since there is no official support for PF.  Wilders has a forum that PF developers recommend using, but it's not a PF forum...just a general firewall forum.
