I am one of many people - as can be seen in the Comodo support forum (when it is accessible check out the thread "v3 and BOClean ") - who had the misfortune to assume that Comodo Firewall 3.0 would be compatible with Comodo BOClean In reality, with default settings during installation, the firewall simply fired off pop up after pop after pop up after pop up ... in relation to BOClean, demonstrated a complete inability to learn (this led me to think that perhaps I had inadvertently installed the first of a new type of security software, idiotware) and amazingly regarded BOClean as some strange, unrecognized - and unrecognizable - potentially dangerous interloper; my machines were dysfunctional in this condition. Faced with a choice between disabling various functions on the firewall (without really knowing what the implications of doing so would mean for my security and far too irritated to wade through the help file), uninstalling BOClean (which has been keeping a reliable eye on me for several years) or uninstalling the firewall, I chose the last option. Needless to say, the firewall failed to uninstall properly and clean up after itself, so the XP security centre continues to register the presence of the firewall even though it has supposedly been removed. As the thread in the Comodo forum demonstrates, my lousy experience of this firewall with Comodo BOClean - this is by no means the only problem - is not unusual and is shared by several others. Frankly, any confidence I had in Comodo has been shattered by this experience: if they cannot get the relationship with their own software right, then what confidence can I have in anything this software is supposed to do - the answer is ZERO, so not only have uninstalled this new firewall but I have removed the previous version as well. Not alphaware, not betaware, but awfulware.
