    I think comodo v6 would fit your needs...Personally i would stick with what you have as i believe online armor is a better firewall than comodo right now and OA has a better firewall interface.
    Its a bit of a pain to access comodo,s connections tab and involves opening killswitch etc.
    I gave up on that and just used process hacker to access network connections.

    Your most welcome.Over at the comodo forum there seem to be users having connection issues when installing the new version.
    Like i said i think online armor is a better firewall.:D

    Online armor firewall is also one of the few firewalls not to have a problem with avast webshield.
    It seems comodo still has not rectified this but im sure a fix will come eventually.
    After saying that i still would highly recommend comodo and ive used it on and off since v4.1 came out.o_O

    Comodo v6 is virtually non-pop up now.The hips are disabled by default and it uses a behaviour blocker.
    Privatefirewall has a good HIPS too.Ive not had much experience with privatefirewall actually but its a good program.
    I experienced a few issues when installing it but when it runs its a good product and the support via email is excellent.

    It protects critical registry keys with system guard.I think most suites do these days.I used to like diamond cs regprot back in the day.Nice andsimple.

    You can make your own custom groups for registry/file protection in Outpost too. It's a very nice program.

    Just run as a Standard user and all your critical system files and registry keys are already protected by default. No programs needed to protect them ;)
