You know you can switch Avasts' skins in a few clicks.

but you see avast (the free edition )
i rarely use the GUI (as i already have already scripted the scanner for weekly scans..
so i usually never see the gui....
its better and gives you the freedom to do whatever you want when you want...

I got Comodo working fine now, so I guess I don't need those other ones, at least the thread will be helpful for others who want to know.

Yeah, no worries mate. Just letting you know if you didn't. And like DA says, how often do you see the GUI besides running a manual scan. I don't that much.

Just go to CIS' properties before installing it. Run under Vista SP1 compatibility and as administrator. Close it and install. you should have no more issue with the network firewall in CIS.

Sigh... do I really have to post this in Comodo forum and the forum here?

I have been using Comodo firewall with W7 without a problem... except for the small unable to update error... otherwise it works very well... and for anti-virus I use Avira.

Does Free Avast Antivirus Have A Firewall?
I'm just about to change from paid Avira Pro to free Avast antivirus. The Avira had a firewall, but does the free Avast have one? If not, what should I do? Am I right in thinking that my Win7 has a firewall, and if yes, is it enough to rely on this? Thanks for any advice.
