    It should score 100%. It has a million pop ups! I've tried using it several times, and it drove me insane. You would think it wouldn't need to ask every single time to allow or deny something with white listing. I couldn't get anything done due to attending to Comodo.

    You mean the CIS user scored a perfect score by answering 148 CIS Pop ups correctly. :D

    No, it's a heckuva lot more challenging than that. It's a 148 tests x # of pop-ups to correctly answer for each of them = some exponential, eye popping number :D

    Whew!!! Glad I only tried it once for 10 mins. I would have worn out several mice by now clicking the pop ups.

    Your right,but people just cant seem to grasp that concept.

    The only thing tested is the users ability to hit "deny".

    It's good to see some people that also feel Comodo isn't worth a damn when you have to spend more time answering its questions than using your system. I felt alone, lol. And yeah, Matousec.....*YAWWWWWNN*. Completely pointless "test".

    There are some other people who like to answer just once for a popup that they understand, just to set their system according to their needs. This popup will never occur again if these people just check the "remember my answer"

    Why dont they change the silly way they eliminate by rounds so that you can see the full list of products evaluated in full?

    The casual observer would be inclined to believe that the products eliminated in the early rounds are crap, but that's not so.

    The last time that set of events occurred, I was using ProcessGuuard... Alas no firewall,and at least a token one, is required to accompany the HIPS in the Matousec "Firewall Tests".
