New Webroot Desktop Firewall (v.5.8) – an easy to use software Firewall for Windows Vista and XP

Most of you might have an antivirus program installed that you regularly updates but at times this precaution fails to live up to expectations, because an anti-virus can detects threats only after it entered in to the system (This is enough in most cases for an infection). Here comes the importance of a good software firewall. It prevents intrusion from Internet and infected Networks, even before they try to enter your computer.

A good firewall always monitors network traffics and close open ports of your computer (through which other computer and installed applications communicate). Windows operating system has its own firewall, but many studies show that it is very weak and vulnerable to a lot of exploits.

Webroot Desktop Firewall (V 5.8) is an easy to use firewall for Windows XP and Vista (32bit /64bit) that eliminates unauthorized access to your computer. Moreover, you can easily block IP address or website URL that you don’t want to access by just entering it from the main window or can mask the IP address of your computer form other infected networks or hackers.

Unlike the Windows XP and Vista Firewall, Webroot Desktop Firewall combines intelligent firewall technology with intrusion prevention for inbound and outbound protection that is both powerful and easy to use.

With this new Version (v.5.8), you can use your laptop anywhere as it automatically recognizes your Internet connection and sets the appropriate security settings

It recognizes trusted Programs, so reduces the number of false alarms by recognizing many known and trusted software programs and automatically allowing them Internet access. Additional programs can easily be added with a single click.

Webroot Desktop Firewall is fully compatible with the advanced 64-bit Windows Vista Service Pack 1 operating system. You can get more information and a free registration key for downloading and installation from webroot.


  1. My suggestion is Comodo pro Firewall

  2. Of course a good firewall is a must for full protection, but which one is best? Comodo? or any other?

  3. If you have a small company and need an all in one solution that I would look at something like unified threat managment also known as a UTM.Cyberoam firewall is the only UTM firewall that embeds user identity in firewall rule matching criteria, enabling enterprises to configure policies and identify users directly by the username rather than through IP addresses.
