I have just downloaded and installed the new Security suite from Comodo. It is running very smooth and installed without mishap. This is the long awaited 3 in 1 application of Firewall, AntiVirus and Defence +. Once I got back on line I went to Shields Up and got 100% security ratings in every aspect. I am a big fan of Comodo and have used their Firewall since v2 but this one looks like the best and safest yet and it is very light on resources. For all you people asking about the best free security system this may very well be it.

After reading your post, I decided to try Comodo Internet Security.
Uninstalled my firewall and antivirus. Enabled Windows firewall.

During the Comodo install, the message that it had found Outpost and another firewall on my computer popped up. Both of those had been uninstalled previously. Off to search for remnants of them. First place, the registry where there were leftovers from one of them, got rid of those.
Found nothing in the registry concerning Outpost.
A search of my computer found nothing of the one I can't recall the name of, and nothing from Outpost.

Back to install of Comodo. This time I was informed that Outpost was still somewhere on the compter.
Decided to ignore it and install.
After a reboot, Comodo firewall was telling me that it was not functional or something to that effect.
I tried the fix option, that didn't work.
Ended up uninstalling and going back to what I had previously uninstalled.
I am willing to give the CIS a try, but can't get past the Outpost thing.
Any suggestions?

Here is what Ragwing one of the moderators at Comodo had to say about your problem. Hope this helps.


CIS will warn you that Outpost is installed if one of the following registry keys are present:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro_is1
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Agnitum\Outpost Firewall
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{33C9E362-3EDA-4930-8AFE-5DA39A8BB77A}


I'll attach the full list of incompatible software and their registry keys.

I got tired of ZA. I installed Comodo on 4 machines last week. 3 went without a hitch. the last one gave me a bluescreen on reboot saying something to the effect of multiple Programs. Don't remember if one was Outpost. I selected "Start at last known good configuration" and it seemed to hang. Went to supper and came back and everything was fine. Comodo runs fine

Thank you Bluesjunior for the info.
I found the registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{33C9E362-3EDA-4930-8AFE-5DA39A8BB77A}

and deleted it. The install went off without a hitch.

Had an issue getting AVG to uninstall, kept getting an uninstall failed message. Finally booted into safe mode and it uninstalled.

I appreciate the help.

Garmanma, I used Comodo firewall for a couple of years. Last week I switched back to Zone Alarm-no particular reason why I did. Mostly because I can. And after reinstalling ZA, I was reminded why I got rid of it-I simply don't like it much.

So now I have Comodo firewall once again, along with the Comodo antivirus.
