Hello to all,
This is my first post here, have been looking around a bit and have just recently been introduced to the Comodo Firewall. I had some gremlins in the machine and it was suggested that I remove Windows Live Onecare (paid version), install AVG, turn off the Windows firewall and install Comodo.
When all of this was done and my machine was cleaned, noting that the bug had arrived FOUR months earlier with no warning bells or whistles, needless to say I was really knocked for a loop.
So much for the history, now for the questions ( I tend to ramble, sorry)
I installed Comodo in a rush and based on what I have read, I probibly did the install steps wrong and just started hitting yes for connections, not a wise thing to do just in case something is still lurking about.
Can I reset the install or remove Comodo and then re-install to start with a clean slate?
How can I determine what is trying to connect? A lot of the names are hard to figure out and what they really do.
At one point during my initial installation, I could not connect with my broadband and paniced, turning Comodo off and Windows firewall back on, which is where I am right now.
I like the looks and reviews about this product and would like to keep it as my primary software firewall. I read the page about how to install and use the automatic settings, but this time I will print that page before I start.
To give you an idea of how I am configured. I have a 2wire DSL modum connected to a 4 port switch where my computer is connected and occasionally another computer is plugged in for me to work on (usually family members or friends who need my limited talents)
Can anyone offer any suggestions or point me in the right direction to get this baby humming.
Thanks for letting me ramble on and I hope to spend a lot of time here meeting a lot of you.
