Do I need Comodo Antivirus, if I have Comodo Firewall?

Q: Do I need Comodo Antivirus, if I have Comodo Firewall?

Im just wondering if an antivirus is actually needed with comodo firewall.
As i understand it comodo firewall checks files as they are downloaded etc and im assuming it would pick up malware on its own therefore maybe i would not need to run the comodo av or any other av at all.

Any thoughts on this please.?


Preferred Solution: Do I need Comodo Antivirus, if I have Comodo Firewall?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:What is difference between Comodo Antivirus and Comodo Internet Security?

Comodo Internet Security includes a firewall in addition to the usual antivirus.I do not use Comodo though (not a big fan of them in general) so I do not have any suggestion to add.

morning all,

have successfuly installed comodo 3, by setting the installer as vista compatibility.

i ran kapersky for a few days, but was fedup with the mass onslaught of programm access queiries.

i am having a slight problem with the firewall side of comodo: i know that it works when i can the 'stop activity' button and it shuts everything down, but when running leak test, the firewall does not respond, i have it on safe mode.

the incoming/outgoing monitor also shows no connections, could this be the problem? the program not communicating with windows correctly?

A few months ago, my mother bought herself a new laptop and at first she used the free Norton trial for antivirus and firewall protection until it expired, then used the trial version of Kaspersky, which is about to expire. I was thinking about downloading Avast antivirus on to her laptop for her, but as far as I know, it doesn't have a firewall, so I was thinking of also downloading the Comodo firewall.

So my question is this: is Avast antivirus with Comodo firewall a good combination? are they compatible? And do they work well on a laptop? I have heard of some laptops having problems running Avast so I'm not 100% sure about using it, and I'm not sure if there are any compatibility issues between Avast antivirus and Commodo firewall, so that's why I am asking.

I appreciate any help or opinions on this.

I recently installed the freeware firewall of Comodo in my Win7 PC. However I am not too happy because of some problems and would like to remove Comodo and simply use the firewall that came with Win7 (I am using the Home Edition of Win7).

I had a hitch that probably both firewalls are somehow enabled on my Win7 PC. I went into Control Panel and turned off the bult-in Firewall of Win7 but it now show the message (or maybe the icon) that firewall is not present (EVEN though I already have COMODO installed). SO that's the first question/confusion I am facing.

The 2nd question is that how do I uninstall COMODO in a very clean manner. I remember froma long time back when I tried to remove Norton Anti-Virus and it simply refused to un-install. Will I face a similar problem when trying to remove Comodo.

Last but not least, will be very thankful if you can share tips regarding what settings I need to put in place for the Windows Firewall to work effectively. Based on what I have read, the default configuration of Win7's firewall has a lot of room for improvement and I would like it to be as secure as my favourite firewall (which I use on XP) i.e. Sygate.

Thanks in advance for your kind help.

Firewall Issue(s) - Windows XP Professional & Comodo Firewall Pro

Friday/December 3rd 2007: This morning I was looking at the features and settings of Comodo Firewall Pro Version Accidentally I clicked ‘no’ when a learned prompt came up asking if I wanted to allow Avast Free Edition to connect to the net. I believe it was Avast. Anyway I figured I would uninstall and reinstall to correct the settings, no big deal, or so I thought.

When windows started back up and gave me the security alert prompt (Control Panel > Windows Security Center) and I figured no big deal. However it was saying “Comodo is not installed bla bla bla.” When I enabled XP Professional’s firewall, window’s message said, “Comodo was working, etc.”

Windows Firewall worked within normal parameters as far as I could tell otherwise. I will try to recreate issue buy uninstalling and will post detailed results later with screen shots.

Sunday/December 9th 2007: I tried recreating the incident and my results confuse me. Windows XP Professional Security Center Says “Comodo Firewall not on bla, bla, bla.” However, when I turn on XP’s firewall it says “Windows Firewall is on bla, bla, bla. So why when I turn off windows firewall does it say that “Comodo” not windows firewall is disabled?

How would I correct this?

Thank you.

As some people on Techspot, occasionally complain that the ubiquitous Zone Alarm
is less than perfect,I decided to check out Comodo firewall.Here are my random comments -

The good points :

1.It`s free.

2.It installs easily on my P.3 XP SP1 machine.

3.Appears to use even fewer resources than ZA.

4.The default settings seem about right,except for the Application behaviour monitoring,
which could be turned off

5.Has plenty of paranoia settings,for those who are that way inclined.

6.I like it better than ZA or Kerio and will to continue to use it,until blows up my system for no apparent reason.

The not so good points :

1.It`s more complicated than ZA,so for a complete novice,it could be offered as
a possible alternative to ZA,rather than a definite replacement.

2.It`s so "quiet",it`s sometimes difficult to know if it`s actually working at all (it is).

3.The developers still haven`t paid me yet.

A:Comodo Firewall

dll validation too

one aspect I like is that when a DLL is loaded with network access, the firewall
can bless or deny access to the net at this level. This means you get a chance
to see what svchost (and other *.exe programs) is loading for fine-grain
control. You can set an option to LEARN the components and then after a couple
of days, revert to monitor components=ON
(so clearly, I like 4.the Application behaviour monitoring)

the logging is interesting, in that it reports the parent of the application,
the application itself, and the activity that was attempted. the classification of
Severe, High, Low risk is arbitrary, so don't get too alarmed at these.

the firewall comes PRE-CONFIGURED with not only reasonable defaults, but
it also is prepared to support a VPN connection;
allow IP/GRE {in,out}bound​
the access to port 53 (ie: dns) is caught and if the app/dll is not totally mapped
by the firewall, it is rated Severe (or was it High) Risk. Heck, all URL translations
need port 53 so plan on setting it as ALLOW.

the other day, a web application had a link for email us and upon clicking,
my email program (Thunderbird) was launched; Comodo caught the action
and clearly showed the attempted SILENT invocation of Thunderbird.
Yea sure it had a window and I knew what/when and why, but if some
vile bugger was launched w/o a window I would have not known it unless
Comodo was there to show me {4. Application behaviour monitoring in effect }

just a quick question about Comodo.
i've used it now for about 3 years,& so far no complaints.
i was a big Zone Alarm fan until version 5 sometime back which was a total disaster,so i searched for a new firewall,& Comodo got glowing reviews across the board,so i went with it,& like i say have no complaints.
my only query is,the thing never updates!
every other application i have ,anti-virus etc regulary updates its programs,& Comodo even has an 'updater' button in its layout,but every time i click on it,it comes back'no updates' i dont think i've had an update since i installed it!
does anybody else find this strange?
is the site still in buisness?
just wondering if i should keep it,or try something else.

A:Comodo firewall

Can I ask what version you are using?. If you have used it for three years I suspect you are using v2.4 which was discontinued. The latest version is Comodo CIS v3.12.111745.360 which is a Security suite including Firewall and Anti-Virus. Here is a link to the excellent Comodo Forums where you can find the download links and also some excellent user advice. By the way it is still free and if you don't want to use the built in AV then just uncheck the AV box during the installation process.For the download link:https://forums.comodo.com/feedbackcommentsa...d-t45362.0.htmlThe main Forums link:https://forums.comodo.com/index.php

Hi Alendar,Old versions of Comodo firewalls are available here:http://www.filehippo.com/download_comodo/2252/However unless you have some particular reason for using one, you would be far better installing the latest version direct from Comodo:http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/During installation you can choose whether to install the HIPS and Antivirus as well, but I would not be without the HIPS Defense+ unless you already have one that you wish to continue with.The Antivirus is quite new but is making rapid progress and has just been included in VirusTotal.

Before Win/7, I was a strong advocate of 3rd party firewalls and Comodo was my pick. It gave good control

Now that I've moved to Win/7 which has a much better default FW, I no longer advocate any 3rd party FB.
The Windows version is sufficient and there's no conflict or maintenance issues to be configured.

A:Comodo firewall

Comodo 3.5 firewall is one of the best available and very light on system resources. It works well with Avira but it's outbound protection needs it's HIPS component Defense+, so you would be better not to have teatimer enabled as well.

I have tried and tried with Comodo Firewall and no matter what settings, training mode, etc. I cannot get it to allow another computer on my network to see me, see the shared printer or a shared folder.

I would like to have Comodo installed, but if I can't use my network, well, it's kind of useless. The second I unistall Comodo, the other computer can access the shared folder and printer no problem.

Can someone point me in the right direction as to how to configure Comodo to allow this other computer and sharing between them in Windows 7?


A:Comodo Firewall

are you able to see your network with comodo installed but using the lowest setting of protection?
if you can then its a matter of creating a rule allowing access...
if its not then its comodo itself the problem (firewalls really sink in into the internals of windows so with things on the inside changing its no wonder why it wont crash...)
if its the latter then you might have to look for another firewall or stick to the regular windows firewall (which is pretty good with the added vista firewall control program)

Hi, was just wondering if Comodo firewall will work well with AVG 2012 (free). Also, is this the official comodo website? http://personalfirewall.comodo.com/

Oh and, is comodo firewall a good choice? Or does anyone else have any other suggestions, thanks.

A:Comodo firewall?

I am not a fan of AVG free anti virus. I have used most of the free ones, and I had more problems with AVG than any other. It is notoriously resource hungry (my computer was very sluggish when I had it installed), had mediocre detection rates and many false positives. I understand AVG have tried to address some of these issues with their latest version but, far better, in my view, to go for a tried, tested and trusted anti virus, and my recommendation is Avast free, which I have used for some time now and have been very happy with.

As for Comodo firewall, it is an outstanding choice. I use it with Avast and have had no infections since installation. Its excellent Defense+ malware prevention system also gives additional protection against any nasties. If you need help with installation and setup, Gizmo's freeware have a useful guide: http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-install-comodo-firewall.htm

Your link is indeed the official Comodo website, but to avoid any confusion with their paid products, you may wish to use this link: http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/firewall.php

Hi all, I have the free Comodo firewall and have been mostly happy with it. Usually when it's normal when you run the cursor over the icon it says it is running and protecting or something to that effect. The last couple of days it says "Comodo firewall is being initialized....." Does that mean it's trying to update? I've restarted the computer a couple of times but it still says the same. I worry that it is not protecting correctly. Has anybody else seen this? Thanks

Hi lazlopitt, Comodo firewall is active from when you turn the computer on. So you are protected, absolutely.As for the initializing you can stop it. Right click the tray icon,altering or even touching the Alert Level bar. This causes the mouse-over message to be corrected. This is a temporary fix. It may have some thing to do with Avast but not necessarily. Anyway Comodo says it will be fixed in the next version.

Hi mrjay100,

Welcome to Vista Forums.

The general rule is that you do not want to have more than one antivirus or firewall program installed on your computer. One of each is fine. Anti spyware/adware programs like Windows Defender, SUPERAntiSpyware, Spybot Search & Destroy, etc. usually do not have a problem with more than one of them installed and running. In fact you should be using more than one since no one program can completely protect you from these malwares.

I use COMODO Firewall Pro, Avast antivirus, Windows Defender, and Spybot Search & Destoy. All running all the time in the background monitoring away with no problems between them.

Hope this helps,

I decided to install Comodo and become familiar with it. After installing (5.0.163652.1142) and using a couple guides to get setup, I seem to keep failing a particular test with their CLT tool.

Impersonation: ExplorerAsParent Vulnerable

Anyone have any tips on how I can correct that?

having found a brief sentence about it online, disabling the Sandbox part of Comodo gives me 340/340 now. Not sure why disabling that would bring "more" benefit according to the test.

Hello Ageeb, i do not know if this is the same source of what you found on line? just in case it is of help i will post it.

Sandbox = disabled [CLT was not designed to be used in a sandbox. If CLT is sandboxed, it will generate erroneous results!]

I installed and uninstalled Comodo Firewall twice.

It has a section for firewall and a section for defense which seem to be 2 completely different things. It also has this sandbox thing. I have no clue what any of this is. All I want is a firewall.

After installing Comodo Firewall, and restarting my PC, I launched Chrome. Comodo didn't even ask me for permission to allow Chrome to access the internet. It just allowed Chrome to go through without asking me. What is going on? How do I set it so it doesn't allow anything at all to access the internet unless I set it to allow without asking?

Then, Chrome wasn't pulling up any pages. All pages were errors. So I uninstalled Comodo, and restarted my PC again. Now I am able to access the internet and this forum.

A:Does anybody know how to use Comodo Firewall?

Have a look at the threads on the Comodo Forums
This link to the first thread contains a link to a document you can download to help you with your configuration.
hope this helps and regards
