    Please recommend a easy free behavior blocker.
    I'm using Comodo BOClean, it is real time protection signature based antimalware.

    - ThreatFire
    - Mamutu

    Mamutu might seem the easiest of the two, but Threatfire have perfectly meet my expectations for some time now, while Mamutu is more recent (ie : slightly "unproven" yet, imho).

    Oh-oh, sorry you're right.
    Well, beside Threatfire then... MicroPoint is still in beta and some members of Wilders are saying good things about it. (Personally, i don't really know it yet, just started to trial it).

    Your already using Comodo BOClean. So why not use Comodo firewall. Only makes sense.

    And thinking that I was just refraining myself from suggesting that he ditch CBOclean since he wouldn't need it with Threatfire... lol.

    Easy+free behavior blocker = Threatfire

    There are other "easy" behavior blockers, but NO other "easy+free" behavior blockers.

    In any event, Threatfire is excellent so... why pay more?

    Also depends on your opinion of "easy". Threatfire isnt completely free either. You need to pay for the Pro version.

    The behaviour blocker in Threatfire IS free. The Pro version offers very little added-value to think that the free version is crippled/limited in some way.

    Here's a comparison between the Pro and free version. I have used both versions and I will say the last two versions is one of the finest security programs I have used. Runs well with other programs and has improved a lot over the last year.

    Comodo Firewall is not for me due to i don't want to configure it and destroy pc with bad configuration.
    Comodo BOClean is for me due to i don't need to configure it.
    I want good and free behavior blocker with NO CONFIGURATION NEEDED and NO MESSAGES (YES/NO - ALLOW/DENY) to input.

    I've been using Threatfire free version for about 5 weeks. In that time it has popped two alerts, both entirely valid/appropriate, but what you'd classify as FP's. (Was pleased to see those alerts, for a while I thought it wasn't doing much, it runs so quietly.)
    Fairly important to not configure it, if you don't want alerts. The standard protection level is 3 (out of 5).
    If you do actually get some malware on the computer, and it's recognised/behaviour is suspect, you will get an alert. And you should welcome that.
    I think maybe you don't mind that situation; the "not wanting pop-ups" probably refers to routine or non-harmful processes, yes?

    Was there any problems caused by the false positives?

    No problems at all. Just a couple of applications I ran that had potentially damaging consequences. I clicked "allow", because it was known, and unsurprising.
    I used the term "FP" somewhat loosely, sorry.
    Threatfire behaviour alerts don't really fall into that category. They alert for any process that doesn't fall inside pre-set rules. (Like any HIPS) So it's just a case of "allow" if you can reconcile the alert to what's happening, or "deny" and investigate further, if you can't.

    I want no more Spybot Resident continuosly irritant messages alert (Deny/Allow)!
    Behavior blocker must decide without asking nothing to me!
    I disinstalled SpyBot due to my bad answers pc stopped working well!

    Did it work ok after uninstalling Spybot? Or does the problem remain?
    You can still keep Spybot, just turn the Tea Timer off.
    I don't think you'll find one that has no pop-ups at all.
    But Threatfire doesn't have many.
    Why do you want a behaviour blocker, if not to control what's happening on your computer?

    PRSC/NAB (both paid) or Threatfire (free) will be good for you. PRSC/NAB is the quietest, so you'll only have to block real malware.
