hi there, I read a lot of comodo firewall in this forum, all in all most users here are convinced of it's superior qualitiy; as I'm using NOD32 I'm looking for a good firewall and comodo seems to be no.1 in this case, so I installed it a few weeks ago and I felt quite comfortable with it. When they released the new version 2.4, I used acronis to recover the image I made before I installed the "old" version and installed this new version. First, everything seemed to be fine, but then I recognized the following: when I started Nero, comodo informed me that Nero wants to access the internet (it always trys to, because it downloads a "special offer" for the Nero user, which is then popping up in the task-bar on the right bottom of the screen); comodo asked me what to do, I chose "deny" and "remeber my answer". I couldn't believe what happend next: the comodo task icon was animated with a green arrow showing that there is outgoing traffic and nero recieved its' information from the internet and showed up the "special offer".... Can it be that comodo passes every leaktest and on the other hand is not able to fulfill one of the most basic task a firewall has, namely to stop applications connecting to the internet? Im just wondering if anyone else made similar experiences... someone has an explanation for this behaviour?? I tried other firewalls from Security-Suites (trial versions: Bitdefender 10, NIS 2007, PC-Cillin 2007)and everytime I first recovered my image so it was all under same conditions; the result: ervery firewall blocked nero efficiently, no "special offer" was popping up. Finally I repeated the "test" again with comodo, thinking I probably hit the wrong button, but same result. any comments??
