Hello. on a Windows 7 x64 with BitDefender 2011. My problem is that not all firewalls are compatible with Windows 7 x64 and BtiDefender is not compatible with any firewall that does anything beyond just being a firewall. I love Zone Alarm but since it has anti-spyware features there are conflicts, same with Comodo, Online Armor, Agnitum Outpost doesn't support systems with x86 process architectures. Sygate doesn't work either.
I am unhappy with Windows Firewall because it lets too many things communicate w/out my permission.
Does anyone know of a free Firewall that doesn't conflict with Windows 7 x64 and BitDefender?
BTW - The conflict is that real time protection gets disabled. This also happens with any anti-malware with realtime protection. BitDefender is great for preventing viruses and there are few false positives but it seems to not like anything else being installed on my computer that aids in security. If anyone knows of a 2nd line of defense that is compatible too (like an anti-malware program) that would be very helpful too.
