« on: July 12, 2013, 06:43:13 PM »
I would just like to inform the forum that i have successfully installed avast 8 after experiencing issues before.Comodo seemed to be the culprit so comodo has been removed and avast is running sweet so far.

Thank You.

Bravo! I tried Comodo Firewall and quite a few issues. System lag, slow webpage loading and crash dumps.
CFW had a nice sleek GUI and could stealth all ports. Not enough good points for me. I'm back with Private Firewall.  8)
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

Nice to see you all have resolved any issues you have been experiencing.
FYI, I have been reading about incompatibility issues between Comodo and Avast for far longer then I care to remember.
Alls well that ends well. ;D ;)

Good to see I'm not the only one who had issues with Comodo firewall.  I've dumped it and am currently using W7's own firewall (I know, I know) with avast and it's running great.   :)

Just an update on this.
I attempted a re-install of comodo firewall 5.12 and it is running very well with avast at the moment so god knows what happened before but the issue has disappeared.
Thanks.
