im new to the forums, but i´ve been using comodo (firewall) since version 3 came out together with avast. Around 2 months ago i switched to cis premium completely, dumping avast which i was using since 4.6 i belive.
I was really surprised with the improved av and positive reviews/video tests.
I always trusted comodo and I felt safe and secure. I still do, but a little while ago I told my coworker about which security I use. He is suppose to be a computer expert, but i don t really believe him so i decided to ask here.
He said that using a firewall doesn´t really protect you and it is just a placebo. You feel safe because you´re using a firewall, but you are not safe. I don´t belive this.
Do you think in my case someone can hack my computer? Watch where i surf on the net, watch conversations i have on messenger and so on?
I know my computer is clean, i scan my computer with comodo every 10th day and once a month with comodo, malwarebytes and hitmanpro (all free). They never find anything. I also use up to date genuine windows 7. I give permission to access internet only to apps i trust and Im not a noob so I know what to click and not to click while surfing.
I think its not possible to hack my computer since its clean and protected, but I needed ask.
