I want a Firewall like 10 years ago!!
« on: June 21, 2017, 06:42:45 AM »
... a firewall that is slim and leightweigth.
that doesn´t come with 5 modules i will never use.

yeah i can disable all that stuff... but you guys at comodo are not stupid, you know that people don´t like to install stuff or have services running they don´t use and want.

i also don´t want the bugs and issues that come with these modules.
for example... to use sandboxie i have to configure HIPS (exclude sandboxie files) even when i have disabled HIPS... WTF?

and i am well aware that the security such a FW will offer is lower, without these modules.

years ago comodo FW was a good product for my intended use of it.

then came defense+, hips, sandboxing, geek buddy, viruscope.... stuff i don´t use and never will use.

i use a software firewall to have some influence on apps that phone home. control over what is SEND from my PC.
that is more important for me then protection against attacks from the outside to be honest.

my router has a firewall, i use malware protection and i scan my system every day.

but a sophisticated hacker attack is the least i fear.

give me (and i bet there are a lot more people that want what i want) a lightweigth firewall that does just that.. CONTROL over my network traffic.

honestly if the windows firewall would not be such a PITA to work with, i would ditch comodo FW in a second.
the windows firewall with the custom ruleset functionality of comodo, that would be perfect for me and all of my friends.

you may have the impression that you NEED to get more features into your product to stay interesting.

but that is wrong!
a LOT of people want something that is small and doesn´t come with a lot of bloat.
people are searching for such a product.

and for gods sake..... make a proper uninstaller for your products.

shortly after i wrote this i removed comodo and installed a frontend for the windows firewall.

after i removed comodo the issues are gone and the windows firewall does everything i need.

i would have really liked to keep comodo but there is no sign that it is going to be better.
it will only get more bloated and you will have to deal with even more issues.

the last few month i spend more time fixing comodo issues then it was worth it for me.
