Attempting to offer an all-in-one Internet-security application, Armor2net Personal Firewall yields mixed results. Initial installation and setup are easy, as the application walks you through several configuration screens. However, the program's interface is somewhat confusing and may not be clear for beginners. The Net State and Program Filter tabs do an excellent job of indicating which programs are running, which remote addresses they are trying to access, and which preferences have been set for automatic-access attempts. A pop-up window alerts you when an unrecognized program or process attempts to access your machine. Unfortunately, certain other features do not work as well. The banned-sites list failed to block subpages of a listed URL, and the pop-up blocker didn't work at all during our tests. Armor2net Personal Firewall suits those seeking a basic firewall application, but its failure to deliver on other advertised features certainly tempers our enthusiasm. From Armor2net Software: Armor2net Personal Firewall stops hackers and data thieves and protects your PC from Internet-borne threats. It meets your requirements for Internet security and privacy. This PC firewall monitors all Internet connections to and from your computer to ensure that only legitimate traffic is allowed, and alerts you to attempted intrusions. You have the option to grant and deny access to the Internet on a per-application basis, thus preventing worms, Trojan horses, and spyware programs. Armor2net shows the currently active connections and their details. You can shut off any unsafe connections. Armor2net stops browser pop-up ads. You also can customize it on each individual Web site. The spyware remover checks your memory, registry, and hard drive for known spyware components and lets you remove spyware safely. Armor2net's interface is easy to use.
