    One of the features I liked about OP 4 was the ability to setup a rule that did nothing but display a small pop up every time that rule was invoked that automatically disappeared after a set time. That way I could always knew when a program I choose to monitor was accessing the internet and how, but I didn't have to click anything to close the pop-up or give it permission to do so.

    Does Comodo have this feature? OA? Others?

    Thanks.

    The latest version of OFP and OSS still have the "Report this activity" function.

    thanks chris2busy
    I tried OA and I could never get those pop ups to come up consistently. They seemd to only appear once when a trusted program accessed the internet for the first time.

    Can you tell me how you configured OA to display these? (If u are not too busy :D )

    I am using Outpost Security Suite and like it very much. I like it rule setting capabilities the best.
