Like someone else in this thread mentioned.  The new version locks up every time it has to look at a new process.  The delay between starting a process and the defense+ popup is several minutes of complete system lockup.  I thought my computer was frozen for awhile until I let it go for awhile.  There is nothing special about my computer setup, what have you guys done to avoid this problem?

Impressive. Working smoothly over here. Suddenly all the scepticism seemed to go away. Thanks to the devs and the beta testers again.

Only thing is, it's so advanced that I don't have a clue what it's actually doing. Will read the help that looks pretty well written and comprehensive, and looking forward to the "CFP for dummies". :)

Judging from what the Comodo devs wizards are capable of, now I have high expectations on CAVS. If it's half as good as I expect then all my security software will be Comodo once CAVS final is released.

CFP 3 for sure is more advanced and secure then 2.4 but this is only my opinion.. i still think she's just a little to buggy  :(

This I have been really looking forward too!!!

I have been running a beta (in XP 32) , wich also worked well. But the final version seems to work a bit smoother. AND hurrah! It allows my on line games to connect to the servers without a hazzle! Just as the beta did.

I love the "stealth port wiz"!

You guys who have been sweating over the developement of this firewall for months now, should have a big glass of champagne and a big applause for this!

Well done!

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Q: I am using CPF 2.4. Can I update my firewall using automatic updates?
A: Yes. As soon as the updates are available, your CPF should update itself. Or alternatively, you can download the new firewall from the web and install it manually

still no update available from CFP 2.4 updater ???

I haven't been a software firewall user in years for various reasons.. but this release is slick.
The features are effective, rich but simple.. I really like this!
Can I keep it?  ;D

What?? All your talking about being the first and you're still on v2? Oh we pity you so... ;)

Just do it manually, uninstall v2 first, disable any real-time protection during the procedure. Besides a manual installation sounds more reliable, you don't want your firewall to be installed wrong.

is it OK to uninstall CFP 2.4?

You must, before you install v3. Just make sure you're off-line while there's no firewall active.

I think it's supposed to be indifferent. The Control Panel just runs the uninstall program it was told by the install program, the same with a shortcut in the Start Menu. Even if you use the latter, the enty in the Control Panel should be gone.
