Switched from ZA to Comodo after reading about it here and been very happy.  If APF is as good will use it.  Give us a beta to play with  ;D.

I've been using Zone Alarm (Free Edition) for years.
I've never had a problem with it. It did what it was
supposed to do and that's all I ask of any Programme.

Then...then...they couldn't leave well enough alone
and decided in their infinite wisdom to turn it into
bloatware. I loathe, hate and despise bloatware of
any kind!  >:(

Well, two months ago, having read everything there
was to read about COMODO's Personal Firewall, I
got rid of ZONE ALARM and went with Comodo and
used it for about three months.

There are things I like about it and things I came
to hate about it. The things I hate about it outweigh
the things I like about it. So I have returned to Zone
Alarm Free Edition.

For one thing, Comodo is always in a "Learning" mode.
I should think that after three months, it ought to be
finished "Learning" and get down to "We got it!"

I don't always know what's going on behind the scene
in most of these programmes, but my preference is to
"set it and forget it". Let it do it's thing. Otherwise,
I get very antsy when I have to check and double
check and triple check if I've got a programme such,
as an Anti-virus checker or a Firewall, is as secure as
it claims to be.

I want my Firewall and Anti-virus Programmes to be
simple, uncluttered, easy to understand when I'm looking
at it without having to play IT Pro.

No matter how many years I've been using a P.C. I'm
never more than a NOVICE. Period.

I've been using computers since 1978 when I was
in DOS. Yet, I still call myself a NOVICE when it comes
to software.

I want to reply each and everytime you update or upgrade a program, Comodo will send you warning messages. It's normal! Not negative at all! Try to understand the software...

Vlk, here you say:

My opinion on Comodo?

We haven't done any thorough tests so all the following is just my 'impression'):

+ solid protection
+ strong user community
+ nice GUI

- the emphasis on leak tests passing is IMHO misleading. Leak tests should NOT be the cornerstone of firewall quality
- moe generally, I don't like the way they market the product.


Overall, I'd say it's still one of the top contenders (although I'd personally prefer other products at the time being [but these are not free of charge]).

Thanks
Vlk

1. If the emphasis on leak tests passing is misleading, what would be the parameters to judge a firewall?
2. What would be the way to market the product that Alwil will adopt to its firewall?

Thanks.

I haven't used Comodo for a while because they seem so slow about fixing it. Can you believe it STILL doesn't work with Vista?   ::)

When you think Comodo is finished learning, you must take it out of learning mode by going to component monitor, and clicking "On".

Was using Comodo until a few days ago when started giving many warnings and would not seem to remember settings. Then would not let me onto some sites. Tried a repair install but no go so went back to old ZA 6.5.737 and all back to normal. Hope final version of Comodo 3.0 will be ok. But may just wait for Avast.

Justin,

I am having trouble trying to understand about the component monitor, please explain what you mean in the quote section when Comodo is finished learning ??? ??? ??? ??? and than take it out of learning and click it on.
