For those of you saying don't use two AV programs! I wasn't planning on doing so, just wanted opinions on which program gave the best defense. I have decided to not use the Comodo AV for one simple reason.  I installed and used the Comodo System Cleaner two day's ago and since have experienced multiple Blue Screens of Death.  About one every hour.  Had to restore system to previous state and discontinue using the program.

That's useless stuff.
Use CCleaner instead...! ;)

Yes, the program seems to have some problems. Had to restore everything it deleted to get the system back to working order.  Seems to be a problem with many of the smaller applications they have.  I'm intrigued by the Comodo Internet Security product with it's multiple layers of protection but if a much smaller product is not right and causes so many problems then what of their flagship product?

@ brhokla
I see that you now have more than 20 posts which will permit you to update your profile to include signature information.

Go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information then Signature: and put information about your system just like my signature about your system just like my signature so that the helpers can offer pertinent advice.

Stay clear of Comodo if you do not know what it does as Blue Screens of Death is its most recent feature.  ;)

But so far everything is going well, even better. Do I have to uninstall the Comodo Antivirus and just intalling their firewall?

Yes, having 2 AVs might cause driver confliction between avast and comodo.
And you can uninstall Comodo AV by going to add or remove program->Comodo Internet Security->deselect AV component and you are done!
which is better: avast free + comodo firewall or avast internet security?

I have better luck with avast free and OnlineArmor and this gives me better protection than avast with Comodo.

There are free and paid versions. The free version is perfect.

Went ahead and added the Online Armor Firewall to my layers of protection.  Pretty nice layout, features.  Simple to use and pretty much does everything for you.  Hopefully it provides protection as good as the Comodo firewall? Thanks for the info on it.

I have run many tests on both Comodo and OnlineArmor and found that OA matches or beats Comodo on all the tests. OA also has a webshield (it doesn't conflict with avast but compliments it), a hidden process monitor, plus it will kill keyloggers that Comodo lets through.

Is OA has a sandbox feature?
