PC Tools Firewall Plus 2.0 installation fileNumerous options exist for protecting Windows systems from malicious traffic. While Windows boasts its own Firewall, many deride it as ineffective. More expensive (and more difficult to administer) hardware-based firewalls are another option. All many users require, however, is an effective software-based firewall. PC Tools Firewall Plus 2.0 monitors systems and prevents unauthorized access. Better yet, it's free and operates with no limitations or time limits.
