So I've setup the Comodo firewall......after horror with ZoneAlarm free. Yet I block one app and another uses OLE automation on it. First what is OLE Automation? I know its implementation of Com+. Does it allow programs that I have explicitly blocked to get to the internet through another app? (ie Firefox) What can I do about it? I'm worried about it. An example is apps I've denied ALL access to, and they enact OLE automation on Firefox. When I deny, Firefox is denied too. Also....I have denied svhost trying to get closer to 100% control to what gets internet access. How can I get closer to 100% control. I don't want even Microsoft integrated apps accessing if I don't let them. How can I get closer to this goal?
