Heavy CPU usage -- temporary while learning???

Hi – a quick (I hope) question from a newbie – I installed Comodo today and am testing it out. Very nice how leakproof it is! However, I am somewhat alarmed by how frequently it makes the fan on my laptop turn on (as compared with the combination of ZoneAlarm free plus Sygate (old version) that I was using as firewall. Is this just temporary during the “learning” stage? Also, I don’t understand why Comodo help link tried to use IE to connect with this forum when my default browser is set to Mozilla – very disturbing. Any comments?
