A while ago my version of Comodo updated to 3.5. After restart, the GUI of the firewall was slightly changed and the "Pro" in "Comodo Firewall" was dropped. Did anyone get this update too?

Lloyd T,

I just did a manual update of Comodo Firewall Pro today. It now identifies itself as Comodo Firewall. Comodo released Internet Security on 10/29/08 with added antivirus protection. It appears to have replaced Comodo Firewall Pro as a standalone product. An update of Comodo Firewall Pro will not include the new antivirus product. A clean install of Comodo Internet Security is necessary to include the antivirus product.

I don't really need the "Internet Security" part. I've just noticed that the scan feature in Defense+ is missing.

I never use the scan feature and did not notice that it was missing. I am sticking with Avira Personnel for antivirus protection and Comodo for my firewall as they are such good products. I would imagine Comodo will need time to build their virus database.
