Discussion in 'other firewalls' started by Badcompany, Jul 30, 2007.
Which firewall is lighter on resources,Comodo or Online Armor.
Yup. OA is lighter.
Agreed, definitely OA2. 2 services oaui.exe and oasrv.exe.
Definitely Comodo 3 Alpha or Jetico 2 (still in beta stage). These are lighter than Online Armor.
Lightest of all, GhostSecurity but only provides inbound protection
Can't go wrong with Online Armor. I run it along with NOD32 and SuperAntiSpyware Pro realtime and can't even tell any difference with or without them running. At this time OA is XP only; however, they are working on a Vista version.
The release of a new OA build with new features and improvements is right around the corner, probably next week if all goes well.
Off topic but can you just install a new version over old version with OA or do you need to uninstall old first? Thanks.
With any new version of a program I always uninstall the old version, clean with Reg Supreme ( Or registry cleaner of your choice.) and them install the new version.But that is just me.
I've used Comodo and am now trialing OA.
OA is lighter hands down.
lighter than Comodo 2.xx of course, but not Comodo 3
It is my understanding that Comodo 3 is still in Alfa.
Is there reliable info that this is the case?
Just curious, thanks.
I'm using it. Sometimes there is high CPU usage during a few seconds (I think it's a bug) but 99,9% of the times is very light.
Well it's quite reliable and stable especially for an Alpha version, feel free to try it and give us your personal feedback !
Anyways the Beta should be released in mid-August
