Hello Eldinv,

Nothing is wrong with Windows 7 Firewall if you are comfortable using Windows 7 Firewall with Advanced Security to manually setup Inbound and Outbound rules. This can be hard for people that are not experienced in doing this. Comodo Firewall just allows you to do this automatically by asking you whenever anything tries to access the network. Comodo Firewall is one of the best free firewalls that you can use.

MSE is a malware/antivirus program though, and is not the same type of program as a firewall program. These cannot be compared with each other.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks!
I was running 3.xx and didn't know they had upgraded to a 4.xx versuin.
I like the new icon: fits better with Win 7.
And it seems to run smoother than the old version.

i dont know how to set that up. i thought windows 7 does all the work lol... i mentioned i use windows firewall and MCE as my security center solution.

in the past i used nod32 and avira but i feel that MCE works fine and i always trusted the windows firewall to do the job.. i dont visit many sites, my activities online seem to be the same. so i think this is fine for me

Windows Firewall (default) is good for basic firewall protection. Of course a router with a good built-in hardware firewall would be much better.

I think MSE is great and use it along with Avast Antivirus. They work great together.

You should be fine though as long as you stay away from dodgy sites.
