If so, what exactly is the firewall adding?
Your answer is going to tell me a lot. Some folk layer on the protections. With that much ram I'd be looking for lighter protection and removing it when my firewall is already in place.
I downloaded and installed COMODO Firewall because I have read that it is the best Free firewall available. Once I install it, It will not allow me to connect to the Internet. I have shut down all other Security programs while installation is in progress, but still no luck. A couple of times it loaded my 'Homepage' but when I attempted to go further it started popping up 'Error messages', asking me if my Internet connection was working,(which it was).
Is there some set of rules for configuring it properly"
Radeon 9250/9200 Series GPU w/256MB Ram
80GB Primary HD w/66.9 Free Space
250GB Secondary HD
AVAST Free anti-virus
Spyware Terminator Free
Any help with getting me online with Comodo would be greatly appreciated. Have uninstalled it and just using Windows Firewall at this time
