Lavasoft Personal Firewall?

Has anyone tried out this firewall? I recently got rid of Zone Alarm Pro, it was a total resource hog, crashed a lot when I had more than one or two torrents running, etc. and I recently saw these testing results, and was thinking of trying it out.

I'm fairly tech-savvy, but wsa hoping that someone here might have tried the Lavasoft one they could comment on.

Re: Lavasoft Personal Firewall?

Yeah, I was considering Comodo, as it's been talked about a bit on several different forums, but to me they were unknown, so I wasn't sure.

In the end, I completely removed Zone Labs stuff and went with Comodo. 48 hours later, and no crashes, even running 6+ simultaneous torrents. It took a little bit to relearn configuring the rules, but after that, it was fairly simple.

I'll stick with Comodo for a bit and hope for the best. Thanks!

Re: Lavasoft Personal Firewall?

Keeping this strictly to software firewalls, what is the reason to use any other than the Window's firewall?
