So far, I am liking Comodo. Controlling outgoing programs is not as in your face simple as with ZA; but I am learning the program.

just a short tip: run Comodo in "Training mode" for a few days if you get to many popups, then switch to "Safe mode"

I went straight to safe mode. The pop ups trained me!

As a general note on the Comodo Internet suite - which is the only way to get the firewall these days.

If the pop-ups are a major annoyance - the majority are actually not caused by the Firewall in a standard install, but by defence plus.

Defence plus is IMO a good aid to the safe operation of the system and would advise it's use, but If you just require a firewall it can be switched off, toned down, or even not installed/uninstalled quite easily.

update/clarification: run both Firewall & Defence+ in "Traning mode" for a few days
(Comodo recommends a week), then switch to both "Safe mode".

dont turn off Defence+, it provides very good security for your system.

Defence+ & Winpatrol is what im using to watch for suspicious behaviour.

Hey there! You're security setup seems to be over-kill. I can't believe your system can handle that much security software. I like your setup though.

I agree totally , (though I normally skip the training mode phase altogether )

I made the post as some users may have other security measures in place to perform the functions of Defence plus, and therefore only require the firewall, which is no longer available as a separate product, (when I last checked ).

I would also like to point out that the standard install also includes a few free additions, (Internet toolbar), which I always decline, though I do find the "threatcast" a useful aid.

I was just talking about your Security setup which was stated in your signature. But your post reminded me part of my older setup.
