    I wrote a thread in their forum yesterday (bugs) but it was filtered as usual. This is the second major critical Windows Update installation in Vista I have to completely remove this firewall from the pc to get all the updates installed. Disabling DEFENSE+ doesn't work. As it seems, not all pcs on Vista are behaving in the same way on Vista:some have troubles like hell, some behave normally. I was OK with Comodo until December 2007.

    Well, that's why i don't intend to downgrade my Pc from XP to Vista. :D

    If most security applications don't work in Vista and many developers still don't release Vista versions, there must be a reason...

    Blame Vista first... Comodo was one of the pioneers in giving a free Vista firewall. But apparently they can't predict the MS patches that change things.

    Short of installing XP my advice is to remove Comodo, make sure UAC is enabled, enable a software restriction policy, use the built in Vista Firewall, an AV or your choice, and stop worrying about outbound filtering. Of all possible security measures, outbound filtering provides the least benefit in exchange for the most trouble.

    This was sorted with the 11th January update to CPF3. The current release allows the Windows updates for Vista, so no need now to uninstall.

    Version 77 takes care of this problem.
