You will still need one... Comodo or something else. AVG 8 is a good anti-virus, anti-malware software. I use the new version and like it.
Using win xp home, sp3, auto updates. Linksys router for hardware firewall.
I googled this question and did not find an answer.
I have been using Comodo free firewall and find it too bothersome. Keeps popping up too much. I click OK, with REMEMBER this checked and the next time it will give me another popup on same thing!
I tried to play a music cd that I bought and got a several pop ups on that. Never got the music cd to play.
I had been using AVG 7.5 until today. A friend told me that AVG 8 free, included a firewall and he had uninstalled Comodo without any problems, relying on AVG 8 to be his firewall.
I installed AVG 8 free today and do not see that it is supposed to act as a firewall.... as mentioned in 2nd line, I googled this question and did not find an answer.
SO, do I need Comodo, or can I uninstall it and have AVG 8 as my software firewall?
If I still need a different software firewall, any suggestions for something better than Comodo?
