Windows security updates vs Comodo Firewall
« on: December 14, 2008, 07:58:57 PM »
Hello

Just a newbie question here. Is it really necessary to get all  of  XP's security updates since i'm running Comodo Firewall 3? Shouldn't this block the holes without getting the updates? I ask this beacuse I just did a clean XP install and everything was working fine untill i got the windows updates and my system now runs slower.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome. :)  You should still have the latest security updates even with CFP.

As it looks, i'm just using my computer to run updates since everything else is very slow.

Thanks for answering.
