    Re: Comodo Personal Firewall

    Interesting that their free privacy toolbar " Trust toolbar v3 that provides you with a trusted, safe and easier way to surf the web" Changes browser settings, for example the default search provider, home or error page(s) etc., without user permission at time of change. Trust Toolbar installs an Internet Explorer URL SearchHook (c:\windows\system32\srhook.dll). When a user types an address into Internet Explorer without including a recognized protocol, IE will utilize the available SearchHook.
    Second, silently connects to an unintended location to transmit personal information. URLs entered in IE are transmitted to www.trusttoolbar.com.

    So nice of them lol. Does cause one to be a little cautious about loading up their other "free" software

    The firewall looks nice, but its not available for Windows 98.
    I wish that Comodo would make one for w98 users too.

    Has anybody tried the new version? Does it eat up lots of RAM? Heavy or light?

    Re: Comodo Personal Firewall

    I've tried it for 2 hours : a very good firewall (nice GUI for me) but very hard on memory (nearly 50 Mo for 3 threads ) :oops:
    A winner for leaktest blocking, even the newest (jumper and breakout)
    very nice for a free firewal
    Back to jetico :p

    Re: Comodo Personal Firewall

    Tried it last night very briefly. It looked interesting at first until I noticed some of the rules it was making for apps. It made a rule for my time sync service that showed inbound approval only, no outbound, yet it was asking for outbound permission, so why no outbound rule? Yet for other apps like Firefox or whatnot, it showed the proper outbound and inbound rules. So something is weird there. It seems kinda nice, yet fairly simple, but I suspect more work needs to be done on it yet.

    Re: Comodo Personal Firewall

    I installed this to try after removing Netveda (I prefer an application based firewall over rule based), and so far it seems ok, a little more intrusive and active but that can't be too bad.

    Main thing that concerned me was Zerospyware LE flagging the Comodo taskbar as trojan/browser hijack. After removing the taskbar, Comodo wouldn't run properly, so the taskbar was reinstalled.

    Haven't yet made up my mind fully yet.

    Re: Comodo Personal Firewall

    I have been using comodo free firewall for about a month
    it installed a trust toolbar as already mentioned ,and I found a comodo toolbar reference in the registry.

    Updated today to version 2 ,all seemed well at first ,but...

    Kept getting the dreaded Internet explorer has encountered an error and must close message when trying to view various computer forums , on line shopping sites and many others.

    Every error said a problem with ddrawex.dll

    Got a copy from the web but couldn't rreplace it in windows because windows is using it.

    System restore saved the day! Went back to last night's restore point.

    Been happily surfing all night now

    It was the only thing that had changed since last night

    I use xp pro with amd processor

    Re: Comodo Personal Firewall

    update to my problem

    sent them an email saying about the error ,had a reply asking what version of IE I am using , any toolbars like google being used . I use IE 6 and the google 4 toolbar.

    Re downloaded version 2 ,uninstalled version1 , reinstalled version 2.

    Also went into the security/advanced settings of the program and they asked me to uncheck "enable application behaviour analysis " check box ..


    Then restarted the computer as asked.

    no internet explorer closing down, can surf the net happily.

    Hope it stays ok ,it seems quite easy to use

    Testing this firewall (version 2). Pretty impressive. Past about all online stealth test and I heard it is passing leak tests. It takes up about 20000K of memory on my machine. Also the popups are very informative.
