    I am running COMODO Firewall, what AV program is the most compatible with COMODO FW and causes the least amount of conflict?

    Or do I just use the COMODO Defense+ and not have to install any extra AV?

    Or shall I have COMODO Defense+ turned ON and also have an AV installed as well?

    Cheers.

    I have had the best luck running CIS with Panda Cloud.

    I picked avast, it seems like a nice one :)

    Should I now turn off Defense+ in Comodo, or shall I keep Defense+ ON even though I have avast running?

    Yeah avast free or panda cloud. Either one is great. Keep D+ on. Its the best part of comodo firewall. I wouldn't trust Avast's Behavior shield as far as I could throw it.

    For what it's worth, the times I ran just the Comodo firewall with another anti virus I always used Avira (free) and never experienced any problems. Their firewall seems to get along well with most anti virus programs. I did always enable Defense + and their sandbox.

    I use CIS with the Comodo AV and find it sufficient. Even if the AV doesn't detect something malicious D+ will.

    My protection is simple and very effective and costs very little. CIS for total system protection, with MBAM as an on demand scanner. I sandbox my browsers with Sandboxie. That plus a little common sense makes for a very secure setup.

    To my experiences, I can easily say that Avira is the most compatible AV with Comodo Firewall; light and effective. ;)

    I agree. Not sure why people feel compelled to use a different AV than what CIS already comes with. Comodo AV is under-rated, and with the CIS's HIPS adding another makes little sense. Just adds additional resource usage.

    The best AV to go with Comodo is its own AV, so just install CIS with default settings and you will be fine.

    But when I installed Comodo, it didn't give me an option to install any AV.

    Is this the one I should have installed?

    http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/free-internet-security.php

    If I remove avast, do I have to remove COMODO Firewall too and install the security pack? OR can I keep firewall installed and just install the Comodo AV?

    When I used Comodo fw I used Avira AV an I had no problems, I use a Router now with a NAT firewall with Avira. Today I started using/trying Avast Free AV, I still have a licence for Avira if Avast doesn't work out. So I would say Avira AV with Comodo firewall.

    Hello if you are having problems, try the installer from the forum.
    http://forums.comodo.com/news-annou...-security-592198632196-released-t79623.0.html

    Yes if you uninstall Avast, unstall Comodo firewall too and do a fresh install of Comodo Internet Security Premium.

    PS: Given that your combination of Avast and Comodo Firewall is working fine, I suggest you leave it like this. You can watch this video about Avast and Comodo Firewall compatibility issues.

    Yep avast + CFW seems to be working good, not noticed any problems.

    BTW that video is over 6 months old, so I suppose things change a lot in that time.

    all should work since COMODO is highly compatible with others though from experience i can assure you bitdefender,GDATA,avast,avira,emsisoft will work flawlessly.
