I’ve installed CIS, and in CIS I’ve installed only the Firewall.
During the installation we are asked if we want to install “Firewall and Defense+ (recommended)” or… something more (the third choice) “for experienced users”, with full leak protection or something like that.
Sorry, but I can’t remember exactly what was the name of the third choice (the more stringent)
I’d like to know:
- what is the difference between the “recommended” choice (the 2nd) and the “full” choice (the 3rd)
- if one can upgrade from the 2nd to the 3rd choice without reinstalling the whole program, but only re-launching the installer and “modifying” something there (the way some installers do, installing what we previously decided not to install)
Thanks for your answer (L)
When I switch from one “Security setting” to another do also firewall settings change? or only those of the Defence+ module?
Do they restart from zero or do they add to the “Defence+” ones that I created so far using the “recommended” settings?
Does it exist a manual that explains the differences among the security settings that we can see in the image above?
Since I installed only the firewall, what happens if I select “Antivirus Security”?
And what does “Internet Security” mean?
Thanks for your help :-TU
In the Help file I can read this
If this is the first time you have accessed this interface you will see four preset choices:
- COMODO - Internet Security (which is for the full installation, with Antivirus and Firewall components (Recommended and this is the default choice) )
- COMODO - Proactive Security (which is for the full installation with some advanced settings. This choice provides highest security level. This choice is suggested for users who need maximum protection)
- COMODO -Antivirus Security (Which is for the Antivirus component)
- COMODO - Firewall Security (Which is for the Firewall component)
I’d like only to know (and also other replies would be appreciated) if they work even if I installed CIS selecting the “recommended” choice
Sure they work; you can try it yourself…
