Well, it's not bad. Are you using Defense+ of Comodo or only the firewall?
If not, why not?
Other things will be ThreatFire (worse than Defense+), WinPatrol, and MBAM (for on demand scannings).

So, after you use the computer for a while, set it to the protection mode.
When it alerts you in the future, investigate ;)

Tech you mean Paranoid Mode not protection mode ;) In the Comodo Defense+, Comodo Safe Mode is very similar to Training Mode it has a better protection then the plain training mode.

Safe mode is nothing like training mode. Training mode allows everything. Safe mode only allows the actions of known safe things and in my opinon is the mode to use.

I think they might release the notifications in a couple increments, to try and lighten the load a little.
Last time I got notification around 24 hours after release, if I remember correctly.

I've never seen a notification popup, just the alert in the GUI. Maybe I just didn't wait long enough since I updated within hours of the new versions being released.

New version notification in the GUI is in red for version 5.0.

Hi ardi_sugianto...

Installing SpywareBlaster might not hurt. :)
