What do I choose?

On the Firewall setup, it says do I want Firewall Only, Firewall with Optimum Proactive Defense, or Firewall with Maximum Proactive Defense+. Which one do I choose?

Did This Help?

Firewall only: only firewall feature.
-if you use other Anti virus, you can choose ‘firewall only’.

Defense+: HIPS(a Host-based Intrusion Prevention System)
-you can block or allow by yourself.
-if you don’t like it, you can turn if off.

Firewall with Optimum Proactive Defense: firewall+anti virus+‘Defense+’
-for normal users.(small knowledge about computer system and networking)
-Do not use other Anti virus.
-If you want to use other anti virus, you need to turn off comodo antivirus after the CIS installation.

Firewall with Maximum Proactive Defense: firewall+anti virus+‘Defense+’
-for expert(enough knowledge about computer system and networking)
-Do not use other Anti virus.
-If you want to use other anti virus, you need to turn off comodo antivirus after the CIS installation.

recommend for you:

if you use other anti virus - Firewall only + ‘Defense+’.(you can turn it off, if you don’t like defense+)
if you don’t use other anti virus - Firewall with Optimum Proactive Defense.

How do I change it now that I have already chosen it. I already have a different antivirus, but I chose the Optimum Proactive Defense. When I downloaded the actual firewall, I chose firewall without AV.
