With all the jumping around you're doing, I hope you have a good backup and use the vendor-provided uninstallers.

MSE doesn't cause issues on Windows 7. Not that I consider it a suite although technically MSE is anti-virus + anti-spyware and then you have the standard Windows firewall that works perfectly.
Jon, I completely agree with you on both counts. MSE will not cause problems because it is an MS program designed for Vista and Win 7. Because of this, we on the BSOD team frequently recommend that a poster uninstall tier current antivirus - especially a suite - and install MSE, a least while troubleshooting. And MSE is not a suite.

I will add that Avast anti-virus works fine in Windows, too. In fact some people are running Avast and MSE simultaneously without problems.

Glad you are able to do it. Does it slow down your downloads any?

hi !

i normally use only a2, which was released in a new version recently.
i have tested different (new) settings for the "File guard", and also runnning a2 & Avast, a2 & MSE, and also all 3 together.
i did it because i wanted to see if i noticed any difference in performance like fx. a slow computer or other problems,
but i have NOT noticed any.

btw, Avast 5 was designed to be able to run together with MSE.

Didn't you just re-install Kaspersky after having MSE and possibly something else?

If you decide to install the Comodo product, be sure to have a good backup as I have seen too many situations where people have problems removing it.
That is a tough one to remove! It's like the registry has been hooked ... gah
I don't care for it all and totally agree with Corrine!

I've found recently that MSE tends to use more resources than other anti-virus programs. This could be because it also looks out for "malware/spyware" but I doubt it. For example, I had Avast Free edition set to Advanced scanning settings and it was only using 5K resources whereas MSE set to normal was using 40K.

In regards to the standard Windows Firewall. I don't trust it because it doesn't ask you for every single action. I want my firewall to ask me what to do every single time it sees a new action. In other words, when a new program is installed, Comodo will ask me whether to let that program send and/or receive information. Not only do I want that level of specificity with the programs themselves, but I also want to be able to block or allow specific ports, ips, protocols and more being used by specific programs. Without that level of specificity, a firewall just isn't doing its job.

Patrick, I share your opinion of Window Firewall and I use Comodo also, primarily for control of outbound connections. My hardware firewall takes care of inbound.
