Windows 7 includes a very good firewall which is much better than its predecessor, Windows XP firewall. But the problem with Windows 7 firewall is that it is not easy to use. It uses a very complex UI which a normal person can’t use without knowing much about firewalls.
Windows 7 Firewall Control is a software which can convert Windows 7 firewall into an easy to use firewall with many options like application rules, zones, port forwarding etc.
Windows 7 Firewall Control comes in different flavors i.e, free, portable, plus and portable plus. This software can also be used in Windows XP but doesn’t include the portable versions for Windows XP. The free version of Windows 7 Firewall Control include applications protection and removable drive support. It also supports IPv6 in Windows 7. This firewall interface can also be used in Windows Vista.
