I have been thinking of giving SSM a go for a while, as it seems very popular on here, but I have been put off by lots of people on here saying it is best left to advanced users who know all about their systems. I saw the free SSM offer on http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/ yesterday, and I thought what the hell, I'll give it a go. After installing, I CAN see how you can get under the bonnet with SSM, and get a lot more advanced and tighten things up more, but as long as you know your system is clean, you can also put it in learning mode for a day or two, and it settles down and seems quite similar, and no more difficult to use than the ProSecurity free, I had before. I don't understand why so many people on here are saying it is for advanced users only, as it appears to me (intermediate user) that using it in this way, it is no more difficult to use than most of the other HIPS around... I realise that an advanced user will get more out of SSM, but for the average user, setting it up like I have seems more than adequate. Please do tell me if I am wrong here, as I am still learning, and value the feedback. My question is, just to check, which features of Comodo firewall can I disable whilst using SSM, to avoid wasted resources and overlap?
