I'm running Windows 7 and am concerned that the firewall is out of date. Is there a 3rd party firewall I could purchase that would not interfere with your software? Thanks.

I have Windows 10 and use Windows firewall and Trend Micro  Internet Security together.  Works fine for me,  But understand your windows may be different.  Good luck.

Hi cjc529,

The TM version works together with the Windows firewall so and your firewall is alright is not outdated if you use the updates of MS.
So no need for other firewall!
Hope this answers your question.

Kind regards,
Tom

Thanks for responding.  I guess my question really is:  Will the Trend Micro Booster augment a Windows 7 firewall sufficiently, given that Microsoft isn't updating this OS any more.

Hi cjc529,

If you want to be save with A windows version then you MUST UPDATE !!!
So that answer your question!
And TM works only together with the MS Firewall so far i know.

Kind regards,
Tom
