Looks good!

You had Comodo downloaded at one time. ( C:\Users\Ch\Downloads\cfw_installer_6106_53.exe)... did it ever get installed and work?

Jacee, I don't think I ever got Comodo up and running.

cottonball, I did what you suggested and Windows Firewall is now up! Thank you so much. I've attached FSS.txt, is there anything else I need to do?

Thank you both for all your help.
