Thanks.  I like this one so far and my pages even seem to load faster now.

Sounds like you're doing good then :).

If I remember right drhayden1 used to use WDF, maybe Dan will give his opinion.
used to use it when it was first released as a paid version and my subscription ran out...then i went to the pctools free one then the comodo free one and then the pctools free one and still using it and happy with it so far again---so why should i go back to the webroot "now free one" AGAIN ::) ??? ;D

and probably the reason that the webroot firewall is free now is probably because of their rival pctools one is free and also of the comodo one too ??? ::)

Will it stay free forever? Or this is another example of freeware (beta) that will become shareware? ???
The best things in life are free.

Haha, I found this funny:

I'm using CFW. It runs very smooth. It's in spanish, i translated it,hehehe.
And is the best in matousec tests.
Why Webroot FW doesn't appears in Matousec tests??

johnny223. You might go to start, then search. Then where it may say to check for all files etc, type in comodo and tell it to search. If it finds any comodo enteries you then can see if you can delete them. This is a start. Might have to go further?

CCleaner is not a registry cleaner.
Use Regedit or one of the commercial registry cleaners.
