I had installed comodo firewall 4 months ago. It has been working fine since then. I use it only for the firewall and don't use it's other features such as sandbox, HIPS, cloud scan etc since Eset, and sandboxie already covers those. I have seen an option for update there, though I had set it to check for manual updates, I am not sure exactly what the update does. I mean as I use the firewall part only for monitoring inbound and outbound connections, do I need to update it regularly or upgrade to a newer version as I do for other security softwares? I am actually asking this because I never saw any windows firewall update. Thank you.

so i rather suggest you to remove it (Comodo HIPS even disabled is still active in the background and  can create incompatibilities with ESET's HIPS; both adding hooks to the kernel) and rather use a software like Binisoft Windows Firewall Control (it is paid for a lifetime license, then it allows you to get the same popups alerts than comodo.) 

 

Comodo main power is its HIPS and Sandbox.

Any security sofwares must be updated if possible, to fix bugs or flaws discovered by the developers.
