Hello,

Just had a quick question:

So I have Comodo Firewall on my computer, since McAffee's program lagged my computer, and I was looking though my Window's XP Security Center (The place in the control panel that helps your manage computer security) and I looked at my firewall settings and it said my Window's firewall was set to OFF, is that ok? Or should I have it on...thus making it two firewalls going at once, my Comodo and my Window's firewall...

Also was wondering if Comodo was reliable, anyone else use it?

Thanks in advance!

You should only have one Firewall, and one Antivirus, running at a time.
Having two running at once, increases the chances of them conflicting with one another, and rendering both, inoperable.

I can't comment on Comodo, as I don't use it.

Comodo Firewall Pro is a very good firewall, I use it myself.

Comodo is in my opinion the best. It has a learning curve in which it takes a bit for it to learn what you do but then your good. It doesn't leak and it's free forever

Here's the download link and a tutorial link

Oops, posted the same time as boopme. Hmm...good info. Yeah I do notice that it takes a while for it to learn programs and such. I find it annoying that it sometimes re-asks me if the program is okay or not, and it gets on my nerves.

Ok, thats what I thought about using two firewalls...doesn't it also lag your computer?

When Comodo installs it automatically shuts the Windows firewall off and replaces it. The problem I had with Comodo is it kept turning itself off and saying the only way to fix it was to uninstall and reinstall it. That's going to get old quickly so I ditched it. Unless someone has a solution for this, I'm not bothering with a third party software firewall. Comodo was the only one I liked when it worked.

It's never done that to me. Hopefully it'll stay that way. I've been having problems like that with some other apps lately.
