Use CIS 5 (complete suite) without any other security application. Or avast! with Windows Firewall or another light firewall. Right now I'm testing CIS 5 (without any other security application) and so far is working well, and the best of all, no slowdowns.

Is your decision.

I am glad to hear :) It's stable, solid and secure. FP come (a part of the contract  ;D ;)) but that's better than having a malware.

CIS 5 is everything you need in case you have no wish to combine AV with different firewall. I don't find CIS 5/2011 hard. If you have problems and you don't know what to do then it's good to follow CIS 5/2011 hints.

Best thing to do is to sit behind a router, or some other hardware firewall or a UTM appliance. I use a software firewall to monitor outbound connections. I wouldn't use a software firewall in lieu of hardware firewall but I rather use it in conjunction with it. As for Comodo I never liked it, very bloated for my tastes and the logging is non existent...at least when I tried it.

Never did trust a person that can't figure out how to keep their PROFILE up to date.

Please go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information then select your country in Please select your country: then update your Signature: with information like my signature as this helps the helpers offer pertinent advice.

I guess that's why you are lethal on the street. ???

Don't troll.I know how to update it, I don't really care about it.

You have a profile, doesn't mean anything to me.

Regardless of your baseless paranoia, what I stated in my last post is an opinion. If you don't trust it...who cares. It's not like i'm sitting here selling opinions. Better yet do some research on what I stated instead of worrying if I have a profile and a ridiculous avatar.
