Just to tell that I've moved from Comodo to PCTools firewall on Vista.
Less bells and whistles because HIPS is not present.
Also, it's recognized by Vista Security Center.
Also, we have the very recommendable applications from PCTools over Vista (like Spyware Doctor Starter Edition).

On XP SP2+, I'm still with Comodo version 2 (Stable).

In vista, I'm using Vista FireWall Control. It's about as light as a feather.

In XP, i'm using the windows firewall and a Netgear router with built in firewall.

No doubt it's light... but I'm looking for configuration capabilities (as usual ;D).

I've give up on both.

I like this.
This seems contrary to what most have posted relating to comodo and connecting to the internet.

Hi,
I love my lifetime look'n'stop with phantom's ruleset with a light impact in my system because of low on RAM use and It is considered very stable and secured one. But I like comodo softwares they have pros an cons. Nowadays CFP is considered the best fw as matousec says and everybody is repeating.Their developer is very bright with a great support team. CFP 3.0 will improve it a lot. But I think its ram resources it's eating a lot of ram resouces yet. It should be lighter. FW can't be system resources bloated.This is my modest opinion. Best Regards.

Hi guys,

I was just wondering: what is it that you like about Comodo PF? I mean, I once trialed it and didn't find it that great - but I'd be very curious what other people think, too.

To be honest, it is probably no secret that we're working on our own PF and so I'd like to take your input as a constructive discussion of the final version of avast personal firewall.

Of course, if you have other ideas to share (not necessarily related to Comodo) please bring'em on, too!

Cheers
Vlk

For me Comodo strikes a good balance between security and ease of use

What does "ease of use" mean, exactly? Not asking very many questions? Or the questions are well-asked? Or nice GUI? Or something else? :)


Well asked questions  ;D And user interface in most cases is friendly and not very complicated. Although, sometimes it is not enough to be just a basic user to understand about what action you are asked. So, I never recommend comodo for first day users  ;D For those I' suggesting ZA. totally simple basic interface, but.... it's not as secure as comodo. And actually i haven't got nay software/hardware conflicts with it.

I'm too behind the router, but... I don't like XP firewall is not monitoring outgoing traffic in most cases...

The problem with Vista FireWall Control is that it does not check parental application. A malware can easily use the browser (allowed to connect) to download and mess things...

If you allow a program access to the net, then it makes no difference which Firewall you use. Once you've given a program the green light, it's gone.

Nope... it can access directly but not as a parental application.
It could access using a parental application but not other one...
The way of access is a security rule for the firewall.

Hi tech,
Just to let you know my love affair with Comodo 3 beta and AVAST on Vista goes on. Now, I've set-up a wireless network between my Vista and XPpro pc, Comodo 3 beta did like a charm. I'm impressed! ;)

I couldn't install Comodo beta on my Vista system.
Just a nightmare discussed on Comodo forums...

I'm really hesitant about downloading Comodo because I've skimmed the net and have seen user reviews stating that it takes up around 60% of your CPU without any reason mostly. Any thoughts?

Actually, I've never faced this kind of problem with Comodo...  ??? Works like charm in here.
