    According to Scot's News Letter blog,if you run ver. 3 without Defense + you do not have outbound protection. I have gone back to 2.4. http://blog.scotsnewsletter.com/

    -Outbound protection, is when it asks you for a process that wants to connect out.

    -Leak protection, protects from processes being hijacked or manipulated in any way, so to fool the firewall and let the application out. Practically, it's what matousec.com measures.

    Comodo without Defence+, WILL warn you if for example internet explorer wants to connect out for the first time and you will have the option to choose rules. BUT, it won't understand if IE is manipulated by malware that will try to use your rules to gain outbound access. It will think it's the "legit" IE that connects out and will let it.

    Just keep D+ active. I dont see a reason to disable it. Works great for me and I got it to pass all leak test.
