Why doesn't Comodo or Sygate pro, recognize Windows Security Center?

That is the other way round surely, Why doesn't Windows Security Center recognize Comodo or Sygate pro?

1. Comodo is too new.
2. I don't use Sygate, but there were issues in the past with it not being recognised, I can't say if this is correct for the current version. However if you know it is working you can disable the WSC check. You could probably get a more accurate answer at the sygate forum.

That's really not that important after all... if this firewall does it's job well (as it does), it really doesn't matter what Windows says. Same thing with ZoneAlarm not recognizing avast! installed on your system as an antivirus... that doesn't mean avast! is not good antivirus, and of course no one should be scared and stop using avast! just because of that.

Comodo really looks like promising firewall, and as far as I know, it passed all those tests. The ones that Comodo failed, I am sure, even some better known firewalls failed as well.

Best of all, even in it's freeware version, it's 100% complete firewall. Try to pass Tooleaky ( http://tooleaky.zensoft.com ) with ZoneAlarm free... there is no chance it will pass. I tried it while I was still using it, and it failed. Only Pro version passed that test. But with Comodo, you don't have to worry about Tooleaky...

Firewalls should automatically stealth your PC by default hmmm   :-\ of course its possible that you might have to do some configurations.  What test did you use?

Try these if you haven't yet:

Shields Up

Sygate SOS

I'm glad you are having good experiences with Comodo.  I tried to change from Sygate to Comodo and had nothing but problems.  Ages to boot and completely broken connection.  Comodo couldn't even connect to it's own servers to verify my lisence.

I'll try it next time I upgrade to a new machine, but for now thank god for system restore.

Actually my computer has slowed down booting up after installing comodo firewall, avast's starting up slower also.  comodo does take a while to start on my computer, other than that, the firewall's fine.

Firewall + antivirus always are due to startup delay... One interacts with the other... it's not easy to solve...

Comodo may be accessing a lot of files on boot, which will be scanned by avast, if your standard shield setting is on high it will scan all these files. On Normal it will only scan certain files, this could improve boot times.
