I doubt you’d have problems, but if you did you should set CPF to ‘allow all’ then try to connect again. If you can connect it’s a problem with CPF, however if you still cannot connect it may be something else.
Thanks Mike for your timely replys! I just don`t want to experience any problems, so I am probably asking stupid questions !
I will be installing it on this same pc I am sumbitting these replys & questions, so if I cannot connect to the internet after I install the firewall then I will know their is a conflict somewhere even after I click on the select all tab.
Hopefully everything will be fine. I just got absolutely disgusted with the McAfee Virus & McAfee Firewall hogging up the resources and causing slow boot issues that it had gotton as bad as Norton. Thats the reason I switched to AVG 7.1, and now hopefully the Comodo Firewall that I have heard so many good things about will be all I will run in the future.
Well, it looks like I won`t be able to install the Comodo Firewall until I get this issue below resolved from McAfee:
This is the letter I sent to McAfee and as usual haven`t heard nothing back as of yet !
I have absolutely done everything listed in your Sticky thread in regards to uninstalling both the McAfee Virus & Personal Firewall down to the T.
Ran all the cleaners for both the virus & firewall, re-booted each time, cleaned everything out of the registry pertaining to McAfee, and everything else you mentioned. Did all this with system restore disabled and with show all hidden files & folders enabled.
I am running WXP Home with SP2.
After all the cleaners, rebooting, & everything else suggested when I disable the SP2 Firewall in Control Panel and then click on the Security panel in the Control Panel it STILL shows the McAfee Personal Firewall RUNNING !
I am at a loss except for doing a complete re-format and I sure don`t want to do that!
I have also done all these procedures in Safe Mode to no avail.
Thoroughly Disgusted with McAfee as the only support suggestions I get are the same ones listed in the sticky thread that do not solve the problem of completely getting rid of ALL the McAfee components since the SP2 Security control is still seeing the McAfee Firewall running and it is not!

Since the Comodo Firewall begins its installation stating that if you have a third party firewall installed, please remove it first, I am hesitant to continue with the installation because the Windows security panel still sees the darn McAfee firewall in the system somewhere!
Not sure if it is the same as your problem or not. But I had uninstalled a different firewall and had the same problem that Security Center showed that it was still running. Found out that it was not really running but that Security Center thought it was. I installed Comodo and when I rebooted, Security Center only showed that Comodo was running and everything has been running fine.
I hope one of the Comodo people will know a better answer for you.
