Windows 7: Security-problem with Comodo´s firewall & Defence+ !

With CIS4.x, you must keep in mind the sandbox portion of this suite will create a virtual registry, letting your software think it is writing to the real one (which is, btw, also protected by D+).
CLT has issues with this new software in that it does not recognize the sandbox and therefore cannot deal with it to show you how secure you really are.

finally some good news, after having had enough of Online Armor blocking my soundcard, i decided to reinstall Comodo.

guess what ?
now everything is back to normal....
after running a new test with CLT it´s 340/340 !

but now the BIG question remains: how the he*l could Comodo suddenly stop working ???

After getting 330 and now getting 220 yet again.. is really odd considering i haven't touched nothing. This is wack...

EDIT: So obviously sandbox is messing with it no matter what so i just disabled it.

The Comodo leak test doesn't make sense to me. Since its made my Comodo, their product will obviously score 100% marks.

Why do you even need to test your firewall? If a bad packet is blocked, your firewall is working. If its allowed, your browser, anti virus software, etc. will still prevent you from getting infected.

For me, the leak tests or any firewall test are a good way to learn how the software works and to adjust settings.

leaktests check for leaks on OUTGOING connections.

it´s not about getting infected, it´s about not letting unauthorized software connect to internet.

fx. stopping a spyware from "calling home"...
