comment How do I get the Windows 7 Firewall to prompt me whether to allow or deny a new connection?
Comodo has a free version which is great (the free part) but it's not perfect. I've never had security problems with it but for ravaging CPU and conflicting with other very popular AV (AVG & Avast) it can be a pain

comment Windows 7 PPTP VPN can ping and HTTP to servers but not Windows Explorer
Yes it's depressing but this was the answer. I went straight past the firewall when trying to figure this one out because it seemed so ridiculous that it would be the problem. Make this #2 on the list of stupid things that AVG firewall does by default (#1 was blocking all outbound VPN connections)
