Does anyone have any recommendations on running something along side WD on Windows 10? Almost every AV I have tried has caused one issue or another, especially with performance. Whether it is PC performance, web slow downs etc. Feel free to PM me so as not to muck up this thread.
Hi, thanks for sharing those settings, do you use it yourself?
If you do, how is the usability and system performance of it? Can you play modern games like The Witcher 3, GTA V, Overwatch etc. with it on and do "normal" work with it enabled?
Windows 10 built-in (file history, SmartScreen, Windows Defender, UAC max, Hyper-V, etc.)
Malwarebytes 3 Premium
Sandboxie, Shadow Defender
Emsisoft Emergency Kit, HitmanPro

LastPass, µBlock Origin, VTchromizer
On Vista...nothing special except SD in real-time (SM on every boot), Keriver 1-Click as system backup
Firefox+NoScript+BluHell Firewall+HTTPS everywere
Yes, I have similar settings (Firewall is set on Custom Mode).
Everything is working fine, I don't play games.
Performance is great (I have Win Defender disabled with GPE).
Web browser is running thrugh Comodo widget aka Comodo Sandbox.
Can anyone tell me what additional protection I would be getting by installing VoodooShield when I already have HitmaPro.Alert installed?
I'm not familiar with VS and recently won a license for it, but I don't know if it would be redundant running alongside HMPA. Maybe someone can explain the differences and if I should add it to my security setup.
So here goes my first post in this thread for years.
Hardened Windows built-in AV + SmartScreen
Sandboxie on-demand before I install an application for real
Zemana Antilogger on-demand
Google Chrome (AppContainer enabled)
Backup on OneDrive for pictures + a physical external harddrive once a month
You can run Comodo Firewall at cruelsister's settings, it won't slow down your PC and it will give you great protection
Put simply, VS is an anti-exe and HMP.A is an anti-exploit and anti-ransomware program.
Re Comodo settings in your picture, do you not enable Virusscope
For me VS and WebFilter are disabled..
But that is just simply a firewall correct?
Why do you think is not enabled?
Is enabled by default.
Pictures that I have posted is CS settings.
You have firewall and sandbox set very good with not so much pop-up window.
Everything good is runing fine, everything not good is sandboxed.
Do you enable cloud protection? I also do not want the browser etc.
I suggest to enable cloud lookup to avoid too many false positives, but you can disable website filtering.
Upon installation you can opt out for chromodo browser, geekbuddy, yahoo stuffs and such
Sorry as you did not post a picture showing virusscope i wasn't sure.
Although may re-enable Virusscope as they are testing some new recognizers.

For booth of you.
Install Comodo Firewall (check options before installation and uncheck what don't want) and just do what is showing in the pictures in my post.
Simple and effective
Done! So is that all there is to it?
I noticed it has been blocking Chrome. Assume this is ok since I am able to browse the internet and update it etc.
Sorry it has been many years since i have run a software firewall. Especially something as powerful as Comodo. Are you running the free or paid version?
Thanks again for your help.
EDIT: I just re-read the logs. Looks like my Chrome browser is trying to talk to my Chromecast via UDP ports. For now I am leaving it as is lol.
