    A - You dont have to. You will get the update next week anyway. But if you dont want to wait, you can.

    Wow ! It took much longer than I'd thought but finally they added IPv6 support for good [Windows Vista /Windows 7].

    Furthermore, disabling the Windows Firewall upon installing Comodo Firewall is a nice touch. WF was left enabled upon installing CF which created some conflicts by running two [2] firewalls at the same time.

    I might give this firewall a go pretty soon.


    Best regards,


    Carlos

    Nice! I can't wait till they start intergrating DACS with CIS. This will do till that happens. I like that they added the rootkit scanning and IPv6. I was just about to switch back to OA++ and sandboxie.

    Nice list of chances, good to see they finally support IPv6.

    Does anyone has screenshots of the new skins? I am especially interest in the native Windows skin.

    cfp.exe is seen as a Virus

    Obviously a False Positive

    Can we hope in a fix?

    Thanks, I think the native Windows 7 Aero one will be the most attractive :).

    Good, that is easily the best option available. Since Comodo aren't heroes in picking colour schemes, so didn't the people who created that blue one.
    All companies should use more native Windows elements anyway. Panda (they absolutely create the most ugly interfaces, Panda Cloud makes me cry, although I do love simple interfaces) and avast! for example. You can see how bad the quality of the border and minimize/close buttons are. While the Windows natives are high quality. The same goes for the buttons, compare some to MSE or Hitman Pro, who just use natives. F-Secure is also great.

    Oh, sorry for this post which ain't really on-topic anymore.

    Thanks for the update. Kind of wish the updates were pushed at the same time to those of us with CIS already installed. I would rather not wait, but don't want to uninstall, reinstall and then reconfigure. Would be nice if you could just install the downloads you have listed and it would update what we have now and keep the settings.
