    These pro's and con's are based on a short use of Comodo.

    I started to use Comodo, because of its great reputation on leaktests.
    Then found Kareldjag's site and started to test Comodo against DLL-injection. The thing that irritated me was that Comodo was able to see that a process had changed and offered me the chance to block outbound traffic. When it is able to detect changes, why doesn't it kick in earlier and prevent the change. I found out that I needed a program like SSM-free for that sort of protection.

    Being behind a hardware FW router and having learned how to use SSM-free reduced the goodies Comodo offered. I then started to look for alternatives and ended up with SensiveGuard.

    SensiveGuard is not a better FW, but has the ability to detect wheter traffic is initaited by the user or other programs. I appreciated this intelligence very much. As a bonus SensiveGuard also offers damage protection (a sort of datawall), see review https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=161749

    When Comodo's HIPS features turns out to be very good a micht switch back (I prefere less security programs, with the minimu amount of overlap)

    Thanks for the info and the excellent review of SensiveGuard.

    I downloaded SensiveGuard, tried to install it, but I just couldn't get it up and running. I waited for ages after clicking the icon, but it just wouldn't get started up on my PC. I tried restarting but that didn't help either. I have uninstalled SensiveGuard and gone back to Comodo for the time being.
