Windows 7: Best AV/Firewall that I can really control?

Kenny, here are some screen shots of the way that I access the programs. There may be a better way that a more experienced Comodo user can share.

In the last screen, you can right click on a program and chose Allow, Block, or Ask.

I have nothing against Windows Firewall. It is just too much of a hassle to control outgoing programs with it.
"Windows 7 Firewall Control" is not "Windows Firewall" and is very easy to control incoming and outgoing. Don't let the name fool you, it is independent of "Windows Firewall"

I tried the comodo, I probably would have adjusted but interface was a bit much for me.

But I found another freebie, "Time Machine" so thank you! lol
A working equivalent of that damn go back, blue screened my machine when I tried it a few years ago.

Well I found out the straight firewall included the program control feature.
So I'm just running that which has no performance hit on my system.

So I'm just trying to find a straight AV app that will play nice.
I've tried BitDefender and Kaspersky but incompatible.
I'm downloading a Demo of NOD32 now and copy of comodo AV now

oh damn Carl I missed those screenshots before.
hmm maybe I'll give it one more try.

If an app is doing something suspicious Zone alarm will will actually freeze the app in it's tracks and pop up in the corner asking me to approve it.
And somehow the apps never crash from that kind of thing lol

Does comodo have anything like that?

Nevermind read your post and looked a little more closely I think I answered my own question.
I'll see if the AV works with zone alarm and then rip it all out to try comodo inet security again.

My machine is running barebones until i settle on something lol
Just the OS and office, thank god for that time machine because all this testing has f*ed it up twice

Well I loaded Comodo again I'm going to avoid run it for a few weeks at least but I'll probably stick with it.

It's the only other thing out there with the kind of control I want.

Thanks for the advise guys.


Hey Carl one more thing I added iexplore to the Sandbox.
Is their a hotkey or some quick way to toggle it on and off?
Kind of a pain in the a** to turn it off or remove IE and add it again when I'm done.
