Thanks for clarifying the issue regarding customers’ standard ISP uses.
I’ll think it through, but I might pick the maximum protection offer of allowing Comodo to cover anything connected to the Internet including e-mails. I’m trying to balance how much resources are used with security and speed, as some other products heavily slow down users’ computers.
If I were to choose option 1 (with all applications), but then wanted to change to option 2 (in Icedragon only), would that require uninstalling then reinstalling? and
As I share a router with another person (she doesn’t yet have Comodo Icedragon), would the router be able to work with two different sets of IP addresses?, even if I changed the settings on just my computer or would the router only work on one browser’s IP address, eg Comodo?
I’ve copied the details of how to switch from Comodo’s DNS server to my ISP server, just in case I decided to switch back. It’s useful to have the different options.
From personal experiences, in my cases, malware has infected my computer in the past. It must depend on how severe the infection is (pop-up diallers, automatic but phoney anti-virus products scanning my computer after visiting certain sites caused a few problems before I invested in AVG).
It’s thanks to AVG that, upon me visiting certain family friendly web sites, some malware has been blocked, so an infection must have been placed on the sites without the owners’ knowledge. Originally, AVG would display a warning about web sites being dangerous, but now it does this but also automatically deletes the web page to prevent the malware from going anywhere, no longer enabling the option for users to enter at their own risk. This is fine provided the information isn’t a false positive. I think AVG’s accuracy is very high, as it lists a few different types of malware affecting parts of a web site I originally visited when all sections were accessible and safe to visit.
All sections of this web site then became inaccessible, but hoping the malware had since been removed, I tried again to visit the web site, finding that almost all pages are now accessible, but AVG blocked two sections including page 1 of a list of music information I can’t access:
I don’t know when this web site service began but I first found it sometime last year. Going by the type of information it displays, it very likely began within the past few years.
With AVG anti-virus, I also use Microsoft’s firewall Windows Defender on a Windows Vista platform, but according to reviews, it’s said that Defender is much less secure than Comodo’s own firewall.
I look forward to installing Icedragon soon.
