Unfortunately CA's firewall doesn't have such a good rating.
Even PC Tools Firewall Plus is rated higher and it's by no means perfect.

Hi bob3160,

You are old enough, and I am nearly as old enough to know, we do not live in an ideal world,

The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you.
Sorry about that,when I first did it,it worked,then later when I tried I got the same message as you.The link I posted was the actual reply from Comodo staff.I will try and post the whole thread,the attatchment was in reply number 68.Also I have just had an update alert for Comodo (funny, I still had to open the program and click check for updates,before it downloaded ) I now have version 3.0.15.277,so thats probably the permanent fix to this issue ( hopefully )http://forums.comodo.com/help_for_v3/windows_update_fails_with_comodo_merged_threads-t16987.0.html

What p*ssed me up is when I invoke Comodo updates and it says the software is up-to-date even with 3.0.13 version... Fixes? Patches? Another Comodo nightmare...

Just what version do you have ? 3.0..13 is fairly old isn't it ? 3.0.14.276 has been out since December 12, the newest version is 3.0.15.277.Did you install the upgrade patch from  3.0.13.268 or 3.0.12.266 or completely uninstall/reinstall as required to version 3.0.14.276

With PcTools FirewallPlus, one week old, was forced to do a clean removal to install their new 0.60 version since the smat update wasn't working. It gets on your nerves!!! ;D

Tech,as far as I know if you have version 3.0.13.268 or earlier,you will not be able to update anymore.You have to apply the upgrade patch ( not recommended )or uninstall/reinstall to the latest version. I can understand your frustration with Vista and Comodo V3,but V3 is fairly new, and has a few blips, but I think the bugs will eventually be ironed out.But there is no point in trying to obtain updates (AFAIK) if you are stuck on 3.0.13.268.I hope you sort things out  :)

With CMF 3 you can export your settings before uninstall( Miscellaneous>> Manage my configurations). After uninstall you can import settings.

Smart Updates are mostly for updates, new versions usually require installs because of differences in the software.  Note avast! has VPS updates & a separate link for program updates.
