I uninstalled Avast but will the installation work if I was to set defence + and the firewall to safe mode?

I am using CIS firewall only new version along with avast pro and I find that it runs real smooth with no bugs or slow downs.

Don't use any COMODO products to begin with.

It dropped my computers' performance even though I have a very powerful processor. How it did so is beyond me, but also once installed, some components are installed for good no matter what you do. Windows Vista and Revo Uninstaller could not fully get rid of several registry keys which remain on my machine thanks to COMODO. All three of its components (Antivirus, Defense+ and Firewall.) still appear in Windows Security Center despite me "apparently" uninstalling it.

I tested uninstalling Avast and, guess what? All Avast registry entries got removed, removed Avast from Windows Vista's Programs list, removed from Windows Security Center, etcetera. You get the point. When you uninstall Avast it does EXACTLY what it says on the tin - it uninstalls, leaving practically NO trace of Avast behind. COMODO however, well, it leaves a lot to be desired.

So I basically go back to what I said at the start of this post: Don't use any COMODO products to begin with!

You can get advice on the Comodo forum on fixing some of the de-installation problems, but it can be hard to find because there have been a lot of issues.  For Vista keys, problem is that Comodo installs some of them under the System account, and you don't have enough privileges as an Admin to remove them.  You can search the forum under my ID for "God Mode Regedit" and probably find the instructions for setting up RegEdit32 to remove them successfully.  Or PM me your email address and I will email you the program to do it.  Be very careful, because it will literally remove anything.  For the Security Center, try http://vista.blorge.com/2008/01/09/how-to-fix-vistas-security-center-from-reporting-missing-or-duplicate-programs/ .  Haven't used the latest CIS versions with the new features, but these should still work.

All their tests are for malware but to be honest one one really knows which one is better as without avast saying how many sigs they have, and even if they did there is still no way of really knowing as what one AV catches another does not.
