    Quick question really, i am building a new pc and i am deciding what av/firewall software to use.

    If i use eset smart security with comodo fire wall will they interfere? In other words if i have ESS should i stop using comodo, or can i use them both?

    Thanks.

    I would NOT use two firewalls at the same time. I would just use the a/v program instead of ess if you want to use Comodo

    Which firewall do you think is better? I've heard great things about them both.

    I think it's going to come down to personal preference. Comodo is going to ask you more questions (Pop ups) than ESS will. I think Comodo has been around longer & has a great track record.
    I personally prefer to not use suites, I like to use different firewall - A/V products. You need to make sure the different security software gets along so trial them first. Some suites have a week link (A/V or firewall) or are set-up to keep the user out of the decision making process, I personally do not like that.
