Hello all together,
my old Firewall made a lot of problems working with WinXP - so i decided to check comodo. Sounds good at all when reading all the comments and tests
i need an extremly closed pc. I’m developer and will block windows (system, modules, …) and all applications from contacting (or being contacted from) the internet.
After installing the comodo, i found out, that there is a list of “scanned applications” which are all set to “allowed” !! - SHOCK !
I made the following changes after the instalation:
- Application Monitor: Deleted evythg but “System”, which is now set to “Block”, Mode is “Turn On”
- Component Monitor: Deleted evythg, Mode is “Learning mode”
- Network Monitor:
Removed “TCP/UDP ALL out” - why is this rule defined and on ?? Everything can be sent !?
Removed “ICMP In”
Blocked “IP Out” - What ist the GRP Protocoll for ??
- Comodo settings:
Alert Frequency level => High
Program settings: Only Protect own registry is checked now
Adv. Attack Detection: Checked “Block all … while booting” and “Monitor other NDIS …”
What else can i do ?
The only application that should connect to the www ist Mozilla (Browser) and Thunderbird (E-Mail) - thats all. No updates, no Windows, no Firewallupdates, no Explorer … nothing else.
Looking forward to your help.
BTW: I’m from Germany and wish (if I use comodo in future) to help translating the GUI to german. I saw some discussions on overflying the forum
