Comodo Firewall user
I have been using Comodo for the past 7 months and so far it has not let me down.
Some people may find it annoying as it will pop-up on you a lot when the program 'learns' about your computer. After a month this slows down.
It blocks any unknown from running and getting in the computer. It also keep a tally of all of the things that it blocked from getting in to my system. This resets every time the computer or the firewall is turned off.
It works fine under Vista Home Premium SP1 32-bit.
been using it about a year
been using it about a year, ever since another firewall I used was found to be incompatable with the computer i had. (caused disconnects and blue screens of death with HTTPS.SYS )
Comodo works decent..
I would tell a power user to not let it "learn" anything and add a "trusted" group to your run list and set that to let it run other processes mainly.
When setting up a program i recomend telling it that the program should be treated like a installer/updater and to use the special mode that is available. (this reduces headaces for telling it to allow things)
Make sure you switch back *BEFORE* running the program itself.
Then give it the premissions model it needs to run.
Limited or advanced or whatever
Very usefull for just the program control there and we have not even started talking about the firewall thats in it.
It's a very nice firewall
Just don't install the unnecessary toolbar if you don't want Ask toolbar.
Comodo Firewall Pro is quite easy to use and it is simply doing what it should do.
I didn't install the Ask toolbar and etc.
But another question: Once I install the COMODO Firewall (which I already have now), should I turn off the Windows Firewall?
Windows tells me that having two firewalls = can resolve in conflicts later on.
Yes, you need to disable Windows Firewall
since you have Comodo firewall now.
Glad you did not install the unnecessary toolbar
Haha yeah. I don't like slow browsers :P
Alright thanks for the help and yeah I disabled my Firewall
Right, it will slow down the start-up of the browser
and will also use unnecessary memory
You're welcome. Enjoy configuring your firewall.
Another Comodo Firewall has Anti-Virus protection
It is called Comodo Internet Security at: www.comodo(dot)com. I was not to crazy about the pop ups from the Firewall, but it can be stopped until it learns all it needs; I switched it from safe mode or clean mode to training mode for Firewall & Defence & Security. There was another item that caused balloon messages and I have that unchecked. You will be surprised at the stoppage of virus & sptware!! Originally, I had Comodo Firewall Pro. Darrell
On my Vista I already have McAfee Enterprise so there is no point on getting the COMODO antivirus.
On my virtual machine XP professional I did, though, install the whole Internet Suite since I did not have any protection what-so-ever (other than the Windows Firewall).
Just A Note: Had A Few Problems Here In Domain Environment
Most homeowners don't have such, simple networks only, but complex networks can be troublesome. And it could be my failings in it's configuration but we require file sharing in one particular domain while blocking others. Same thing is a few office networks where multiple workgroups were used..
As a result, the firewall became a little glitchy and unreliable for a few simple things like internet connections.
This may not be your situation but I thought it important to point it out.
Hope this helps.
I'm running the average-joe network but with higher knowledge to its security.
The only thing that I dislike about COMODO is that even though I say "remember my answer" or something it still asks.
