    Hi

    i installed comodo firewall , last built and i noticed a slow down with firefox
    it's set to learn
    did you find the same slow down?

    i installed only the firewall with hips but without antivirus
    ->this version http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/firewall.php



    i got some nag pop up , like join to facebook but i guess
    go to More > Preferences and untick Enable Comodo Message Center should disable

    thanks

    I think he means he's experiencing a conflict running Comodo Firewall and Sandboxie together. He's got a separate thread running on this subject. And BTW, no slowdowns for me either running Comodo Firewall 5.3 and Sandboxie 3.52 together.

    There should be no conflicts between Comodo and SandBoxie if you don't sandbox the same programs with both. I have them running fine together as well.

    You could also add Firefox to your 'Exclusions' like I mentioned in your other thread.

    Are all your drivers up to date?

    I was having a problem with FF a few months ago and it turned out that a desktop 'Gadget' was causing the problem.

    I haven't tried comodo firewall, but in my experience...most third party firewalls could really cause surfing slow down. Coz it "filters" many things before it passed thru in your system. So, if your connection is already slow then better be content with the built-in windows firewall. Just pair it with light in resources HIPS protection.

    There are some... that even if it's already disabled it could still affect in one way or the other, just like those paid pro defragmenters out there...always running in the background even if you don't like to. :p

    Just installed CIS (the full suite) and everything works fine.
    Sandbox enabled.

    Sandboxie works fine.
