I've used over a dozen iterations of CIS since v3.8 and the most recent v5.0 release is better than ever and even more user friendly with greatly enhanced State of the Art layered default-deny protection.

Actually, I don't think it is as user friendly as was the previous version. I am using it; but I like the older version much better. This version is certainly not intuitive.

I have a very hard time finding my way around in it. It is difficult for me to find the list of programs blocked, allowed, ask. It took two clicks to get there in the previous version. I want easy access to the programs list. I am strongly considering going back to Windows Firewall with the addon for ease of use.

Carl,
I use MSE, windows firewall, and MBAM just for the ease to use.

You're right the Comodo GUI has changed. The Firewall Rules you are looking for are called Network Security Policy and is still just 2 clicks away. I know what you mean by
it being hard to find because I also had a difficult time getting used to the new GUI layout myself for the first few weeks I had v5.0 installed.

I also use MBAM as an on demand scanner ever since A-Squared Free stopped offering a context menu scanner and although it works very well I found that the Hitman Pro Second Opinion Cloud Scanner many times will find Malware that MBAM misses and a full scan of the 22.5 GB of data on my HDD takes just over 1 minute to complete plus its free.

Yes, many of us have tried it and use it. Just read through this thread. In the Crashes and Debugging section, the BSOD team recommends MSE daily.
