Let me first start by saying that Comodo is pretty much the only firewall software I’ve ever used. I used to use Sygate Personal Firewall until they went outta business. Needless to say I installed Comodo like a year ago and have been using it ever since.
So I was having some DCOM exploit problems with Comodo so I figured to check the site and discovered that I was using an outdated version of Comodo. I upgraded to 3.0 and you can imagine my suprise when Comodo began doing a “malware scan”
So I guess my question is this… I’ve been using Avast Antivirus and Comodo for years now, and I’ve never had a virus. Does Comodo 3.0 handle viruses and malware now in the same way that Avast does? and if so, would it be prudent of me in the interest of saving system resources to remove Avast and let Comodo have full responsibility of protecting my system?
If you’re running 3.0, do you also run virus software too? It goes without saying that if I can keep my system safe and run LESS programs in the background, that’d be pretty awesome.
Welcome to the forum DarkDomino. You need to use a Anti Virus along with CFP3. Comodo says Defense+ is HIPS Hos Intrusion Prevention System it blocks based on behavior (someone please correct me if im wrong) It is not always accurate and is not 100% prevention/detection so Yes you need to use a Anti Virus with any firewall/HIPS I myself use Avast 4.8 Home Edition and CFP3 and i have also been clean for awhile now. Hope this post helps you. :-TU
Yes you will get a lot more pop-ups mulitiply x 2 or possibly more I tried the aggresive mode in one of the Beta’s.
I believe it checks each process before any attempt is made to load by another process.
