I really appreciate the careful thinking that has gone into the Commodo firewall, and the fact that it is free.
But to me it seems a real pain to use at the present. Too many bugs, and causes too many performance issues on my computer.
Yes there are work arounds - but my experience is that you have to ‘work’ real hard to find and implement all the work arounds you need. Many themselves seem to introduce security holes - for example I have had to stop guard32.dll loading to run Open Office reliably. (See trace on this & java.exe).
Commodo’s strategy (as I understand it) is to use this free software to build its reputation and then sell to corporates. Version 2 had this effect. Version 3 is actually undermining your reputation IMHO.
I think that the longer you leave this software unfixed the greater will be the damage to your reputation!
So it would be really great for everyone if you could fix it.
Many thanks again for the fact that it is so functional and free
Good evening from Canada. I still want to believe that version 3 is worth updating to from version 2. The bug that chased me away from version 3 was the old “configuration seems to be out of date” bug that arose every boot up. Was that one of the bugs that got fixed in this latest release?
