recently after microsoft came out with the build 1511 update for windows 10 64 bit, my comodo firewall suddenly fails avast antivirus's compatibilty scan saying my firewall is a antivirus (when i install my firewall it gives me an option to install their antivirus but i always uncheck it).
right now i'm reinstalling windows 10 and i'm going to install avast antivirus and use windows firewall but i do want to use my regular firewall (comodo, since i'm not very comfortable with using windows firewall).

Make sure you install the latest Comodo Firewall and just the firewall.

There were issues with earlier versions and Win10.

You are upgrading the operating system.
Creating a restore point is totally useless.
