Coolio, those are my thoughts exactly regarding Vettetech, lol. I am a gamer and try new drivers frequently. Comodo gives me no trouble at all.
You spotted him, mon!
Hey everyone. After being over in the Comodo Forums to check on how CPF 3.0 has been doing. I was wondering if anyone is using BOClean with it? Seems like a lot of people there are, but is it even needed with Defense+?
Well, if you look at the newest review of Comodo Firewall Pro 3.0 in PC Magazine , ZoneAlarm does have HIPS-like function it's called OSFirewall, the same HIPS-like function in Comodo, Defense+.
In your opinion, does CFP 3.0 has better inbound and outbound protection than current version ZA Pro, for example?
What do you think- what others think, too?
You people are way too suspicious!
Well I am using ZAAS and it has site blocking and has worked a couple of times for me. It wont let you access certain sites cause they are known spyware sites. Also my friend gave me a keygen which I did not know about and ZAAS automatically quarantined it. ZA and Comodo are both good firewalls its just what you perfer. I myself dont wanna bother with all the pop ups and warning and pending files of Comodo.
Yes I use it. It's very light, free and covers one more base as far as I can see. No harm in trying it out for yourself.
Thanks Joliet Jake. After reading in the other malware forum about people combining ThreatFire and Comodo Pro, I was also going to try ThreatFire with it, but I thought BOClean would be a better compliment.
You may be right, but my son just got infected recently and althuogh SuperAntiSpyware thankfullty came to the rescue to clean everything up, I think Comodo's Defense+ may have prevented it from happening? And yes or ZAAS.
D+ is pretty comprehensive and will notice a lot of things happening. But it won't make any decisions for you. Instead it will alert you to everything that is happening and ask you if you will allow it. If your son answers 'yes' to everything, D+ wont help you.
Threatfire on the other hand will make decisions for you and alert you on suspicious activity.
BOClean is signature based so unless the malware is in its database, it won't help.
Isn't that the case with everyone here
Understood huangker. I just meant to say the possibility of something being detected would have been there with CPF or as you said TF. I like having the possibility that I won't get infected if and when the event ever materializes and that's why I am starting to like Comodo more. Is it overkill? I have said it was in the past and although it may be true. It runs so light on my PC that I find it hard right now to go back to ZAAS or OA Free or even TF. I'm not sure BOClean adds a whole lot for me, but again it also runs light and I feel may be a better alternative than some of the AS apps available.
Does CFP has some heuristic/ behavior based malware detection( in addition to classical HIPS)?
See post no. 4 here.
I will love to see a snapshot of such a pop up from CFP!
Here I just found the post about it a little while ago http://forums.comodo.com/feedbackco...en_released-t14915.0.html;msg104509#msg104509
Firefox has never been faster with any other FW I have used, and with Defense+ enabled I experience no slowdowns like I did with ThreatFire. The slowdowns with TF weren't bad, but enough that I can tell the difference by now using CPF 3.0. again. Also have BOClean and AVG Pro running.
Thanks. That,s a nice work indeed. A behav blocker like TF or KAV PDMs or something like that. Needs some testing by throwing some malware on it.. But it did not tell what type of malicious behavior triggered the alert.
Cool. Just curious what happens after clicking, How should I answer. Is this how you submit it to Comodo for analysis?
If you think it's not safe, block it. Then go to miscellaneous-Submit suspicious files and select it and upload it to Comodo.
Hey Fuzzfas, thanks. Still a little bit torn between TF and CPF, but th noticable increase in browser speed with Comodo makes me lean towards keeping it over TF at least for now. Almost all the troubles I see are with Vista and I have XP so no worries there. Thanks again for your help here and before.
Uninstalling and installing different security programs once week or so isnt such a good idea unless you clean out your registry. Try sticking with something or else have a good back up system. Dont wanna see you reinstall your OS.
Hi Woodward! I m torn between 4 firewalls, so am in worse position.LOL! Right now i run the new Comodo version. Took TF off after the issue with Sandboxie, that you may have read in TF forum. I decided i need Sandboxie more. Will wait till they find a solution about it.
I have XP too and no problem with this Comodo version either.
You like Sandboxie that much huh? LOL. I know innerpeace does and many swear by it. I noticed in the registry that one of Comodo's keys reads something about sandbox. When I have more time I'll search for it. I noticed it after I uninstalled Comodo the last time as I was deleting the leftover keys from it of which there are quite a few. Other than that I am finding it difficult to change back to any other FW at this time. It just runs that smooth and with no slowdowns. I may add TF along with Comodo as some people in here have, but I'm still not sure it's needed. It does however seem that TF and Comodo would offer much more in the way of protection than BOClean and Comodo. Take care Fuzzfas.
Ok so my new Dell WOW Editon laptop came in and after using PC Defrapifier to get rid of all the junk installed apps I thought I would try Comodo again. Welll I think they toned down the alerts cause I dont get now where near as many pop ups. Seem to be ok for now. I like PC Mag review. I tired OA before Comodo and there are way too many pop ups and the not being able to resize theGUI drives me nuts cause you cant see the whole strings. I know I am a ZA fan but I thought I would try Comodo again on a new pc and I am liking it.
