Why does Firewall keep blocking apps, even when Comodo is exited?

Something I’ve always wondered… if I EXIT Comodo, the firewall rules still seem to be in place.

But if I DISABLE Comodo, they are indeed disabled.

Why doesn’t EXITing Comodo stop the Firewall completely?

Because then a piece of malware could simply terminate CIS and you’d be wide open for attack.

When you ‘Exit’ CIS, you are actually only exiting the GUI. This can be proven by checking your services after exiting CIS and verifying cmdAgent.exe is still running.
