Hello Qim, That should be fine. At the present time you must download CIS and during the setup you can choose only to install the firewall.
I see you want to install avast! and that’s fine, if it’s cause your worried that the antivirus in comodo has a poor detection rate then I think you should reconsider, It’s good at the newer malware thats out - it only lacks the older malware. Avast! is a good anti virus there is no doubt about that, but maybe CIS could fit your needs better, or maybe not… It’s up to the individual what suits his\her taste
While I was on Skype I disabled Windows Firewall. A window popped-up and as I was ot sure whether to accept or not I just closed the window (by the X). I then closed Skype and started again expecting Comodo to detect Skype and ask me if I should accept it, but nothing happened!
You should of allowed it. In CIS main GUI, Go to Defense+>Advanced>Computer Security Policy and search for Skype and remove it. Also check Firewall>Advanced>Network Security Policy and remove Skype there too.
Now re-open skype with Windows Firewall disabled and allow the Alerts.
Ok…now, rather delayed an Alert came up asking me to allow Skype. But that I think is a third party computer trying to use mie as a bridge. Should I not Block this type of request so that only my contacts can us Skype?
