"New" comodo firewall

  hiwatt 15:30 29 Dec 2007

Hi folks,I had to uninstall my comodo firewall and when I reinstalled the latest version it's a totaly different one to the one I had.The comodo shield was blue and this one is white.It also gives me a lot more prompts and to me looks more complicated.I suppose I was just used to the other one.Has this one been replaced or have I downloaded a different one?Thanks

The firewall also has Proactive defence. Tried it but not for me. You can deactivate this or uninstal Comodo and reinstall and select , simple firewall' on installing.

Hi folks,I'm finding this a bit complicated with just too much prompts.Is there anyway of getting the version of comodo I had before?I'm not sure which version it was but it's the one with the blue coloured shield as opposed to white.Thanks.

You just need to get used to using it. There will be two reasons for the high number of prompts: firstly, it cannot refer to previous rules (obviously) and secondly, it will be in training mode if you opted for the default settings. Click the icon and change the levels from the context menu.

Also, read the help files to familiarise yourself with the changes.

What settings do you reccomend?Should I untick "display balloon messages?Thanks.

I've just noticed under the network defence section,it's saying it has blocked 214 intrusion attempts so far and under proactive defence it has blocked 4 SUSPICIOUS attemts.Is there a way that I can see what these attemts are?It sounds qyite serious.Thanks.
