Hello my friends! I just got the news “version 3 got released”. So, i have some questions for you experts.
1 - I have a router smc ( not wireless ), i know i’m well protected with it, does it plays good with comodo 3? do you advise me to download/install?
2 - I heard rumours about the firewall being very annoying ( version 3 ). like, lots of popups just to connect the msn and such… is it true?
3 - Will this version make my internet connection slow? i usually download files with a Bittorrent program, so i don’t want this to drop my speed.
That’s all! sorry if i’m being too boring, and thanks a lot in advance
Ok Mike! thanks a lot for your fast reply, i shall give it a go! bye
You’re welcome. Don’t forget to let us know how you get on.
At first impressions … NO you shouldn’t
the bad points - for me
where is my list of trusted applications ?
why does “treat as web browser” mean “never let this application access the net and keep spamming me with access requests”. . .and “remember my answer to this question” doesn’t seem to work either
why must i add “all applications” as trusted before firefox will connect to the net??
why is there a separate policy rule created for every one of those aforementioned “remember me” button clicks.
i close the firewall using the taskbar and then nothing has internet access
why is there nothing in the process or event list - ever?
apparently “the Defense+ is not functioning properly” despite restarting 4 times to activate it
and the few good points -
the new active connections dialog as a tree is nice
listing the access rules below each application is good
I found version 3 to be a bit buggy for me…especially with Avast 4.7 Home Edition.
I’ve also found it quite buggy, I may just go back to old version.
Well, i installed it… and without changing any setting:
- When i first started Mirc, it gave me 2 popups
- Msn gave me about 3 or 4
- Firefox gave me about 7 or 8
I set to always allow, anyway i guess the rumours were right, this is a bit annoying
Edit: I just got disconnected from mirc and msn, at the same time. with no aparent reason. I guess i’m going to uninstall ;(
