Ashampoo FireWall is a FREE network tool designed for both the expert and the non-professional user. This self-explanatory lightweight tool protects you against unwanted programs self-installing in your computer through your network connection. It also warns you about malicious viruses and other attacks from the Internet, as well as about programs trying to send out information about your system. You can also monitor your system activity and decide on how and when all processes and programs should be running on your computer. Select the Easy Mode for a simple setup process, or the Expert Mode to activate a wide range of expert features. In both modes, detailed information and instructions are always present on every screen to guide you through any decision you may need to make.

Ashampoo FireWall FREE goes beyond Windows® firewall to offer you a higher level of protection. If you activate its Learning Mode, it will let you know when some program installed in your system is trying to send out information about you through your Internet connection, so that you can decide whether you want to allow that activity or not. You can also create rules to configure how every program may access your network, and you can even block all your system’s traffic completely if you believe it is under attack or infected.

Together with this heavy-duty firewall protection, Ashampoo FireWall FREE gives you four extra features to enhance your network security and your system performance.

- AutoStart Manager will show you which programs in your computer start up automatically when Windows® does, allowing you to configure which of them should be activated or not every time you boot up your system.
- Monitor tells you about the processes that are running in your computer at that time, helping you to easily identify malicious software.
- Internet Cleaner deletes all cookies, Internet temporary files and all traces of the webpages you have visited, for privacy and security purposes.
- IP Spam Blocker prevents popup spam from using Windows® messaging service to show up on your screen.

Forget about complicated instructions manuals and heavyweight software to enjoy professional protection. Ashampoo FireWall FREE is small and powerful at the same time, easy to set up and configure, and full of extra features for the expert user.
