Comodo Firewall Comment

I have been using Comodo Firewall for about 1 month. I believe this is the best program I have used for security either free or paid. I want to thank the developers and am looking forward to the new version that is in the works. I just hope that you always leave the options for the user to allow/deny any program that attempts to connect to the internet from your computer. I personally don’t mind the popups to any and all programs. I am on a wireless cable network I always want to know when and what is trying to connect at all times. I know a lot of users complain about the allow/deny popups, but that should be their option if they want to always allow.
Just wanted to thank everyone and say that I recommend this program to all.

Hi Augie65, welcome to the forums.

Really glad you like CFP, I was very impressed when I first saw it as well.

I’m also very impressed with the new CFP 3 (currently in Alpha testing), Comodo have really taken the “next step” with it. Wait until you get your hands on the next version when its out, it has full HIPS & some very cool features.


I could not agree more with you…
Comodo is ( for me anyway) magic and sure, the price is right!

I’ve been using ZoneAlarms for years but it was “eating” the computer’s ressources!
Then I used Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall. . . it was okay but I’m tired of paying all the time for software, especially being retired now. (B)

So just want to say Thanks a million Comodo and LONG LIFE!

Good you like Comodo, I think it’s a great product, I’ve tried about 10 different firewalls, but never found something as great as Comodo.
Oh, and bye the way, welcome to Comodo’s Forum :slight_smile:

Comodo is great. I was very surprized that after I installed COMODO, I ran ADWARE 2007 and it found 9 tracking cookies from this web site ???. Guess it wasn’t blocking it too well.

Welcome to the forum.

This web site as in this forum right here and now? Let’s start from the beginning. What is a tracking cookie? Well, Wikipedia defines a HTTP cookie as:

HTTP cookies, sometimes known as web cookies or just cookies, are parcels of text sent by a server to a web browser and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. HTTP cookies are used for authenticating, tracking, and maintaining specific information about users, such as site preferences and the contents of their electronic shopping carts.

There’s more, but you can click on that url I linked and see the rest for yourself.

My definition: pretty much any website that requires logging in like web-based emails (e.g. Yahoo, MSN, etc.) and forums require cookies in order to keep track of who is logged in! If not, how will it distinguish whose profile is currently using the forum? How can it tell that it’s me versus you who’s logged in?

Back more on topic:
A firewall is not designed to block cookies; that’s why we have browsers that do that.
