Yes, I've tested the firewall. Quite good actually, but beaten by Kerio, so no change for me.

Seems they have a free security setup. Just looks too good to be true. If they are good then it might be a good site to refer any new begginers to secure their pc's untill they are confident enough to search around for other (free) apps. Just a thought as you've got firewall,av etc all in one basket so to speak.

No different in basic approach to ZoneAlarm, Avast! AVG, Search and Destroy, SpywareBlaster and similar free (excellent) security products...:-)

Think that I will pass on this one. Just had a look at two of the 'free for ever' programs. One was or appeared to be a trial version. Another program required registration?.

All my free security apps require registration, the AV is beta I think.

The Comodo firewall 2.0 has a good write-up in this month's (Oct issue) mag. Just might give it a go, although I have Mcafee firewall which is free with AOL.

I'm testing the AV on one of my machines, true it's a beta and the "live" coverage is on access which puts it rather some way behind avast or AVG. But it is totally free even to business users and network suitable. So nobody at all has any excuse for running without up to date AV of some form. I'll be interested to see if Comodo submit it for test to ICSA and VirusBulletin as that's as good a way as any of finding out if it's any good.

Just uninstalled Mcafee firewall and running Comodo. Good interface and will see how it goes.

I installed it yesterday (the firewall that is) and it seemed OK, but then my games kept crashing during load up so I had to uninstall it. Shame really. It looked alright.

According to the author of a book I have, "...the built-in Windows Firewall is sufficient...in protecting against system intrusion."

"...it is the least troublesome to use, particularly for online gamers and the average home user."

Personally, I will probably stick with the Windows firewall, but there are those who don't use a firewall at all, and I'm beginning to see why!

Thanks for that. So far everything's steady here exept that AOL doesn't recognise it but Windows does. Will try to load a game later.
