Need a firewall

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My trial for Norton expired and I wanna know what firewall to get, whether I should just find some free one or buy one.

I just need a firewall that just protects my laptop, but if its possible to get one that can be used on more than one computer say 4, that would be nice but its not necessary. A decently priced firewall would definitely be nice.

Comodo is my personal fav. Both their AV and Firewall are awesome.
