    Noob + GlassWire + BiniSoft = ??

    Ok, relative noob here. Win 8.1

    Using KIS + MBAM Pro (permissions allowed for each)

    Was thinking of switching to KAV + MBAM Pro + GlassWire or BiniSoft Windows Firewall control as add-on to MS FW.

    As a relative novice should I leave KIS in (rarely if ever receive outgoing or any permission requests) and let it do its job

    or try Windows FW (+ KAV + MBAM Pro) with one of the above add-ons and learn to monitor/control traffic (worried about request for action on an action that I am unfamiliar with...)

    Windows Firewall Control (no eye-candy but came highly recommended- but also keeps you busy....)

    BTW, why DOESN'T KIS FW ask me re: outgoing....ever?

    I don't know what "KIS" is - to me that means "Keep It Simple". And with that thought, I just use Malwarebytes + Microsoft Security Essentials and the standard built-in Windows Firewall.
    I've never needed more than that.

    Firewall better app?

    Previous discussions on firewalls, though not exactly specific to your question. You may also consider asking on the Kaspersky Forum.
