    Comodo


    Hello
    I am considering using this as my firewall instead of the Win 8 one.
    Does anyone have experience with it for a slightly above average user?
    Thank you
    Peter

    Yes, and I quite like it. I've not tried 6 yet, but quite a few people were saying they didn't like the changes made in 6 and were sticking with 5.12, so maybe worth reading some feedback.

    6 or 5.12


    Would using a prior version allow for less security?

    From a Firewall perspective, not that I'm aware of, otherwise I'd have installed 6 myself.

    As I only use the Firewall part I can't really comment on the rest of it, therefore if you plan on using other parts of the suite as well, here's a list of what's new in 6:

    firewals


    I have been studying firewalls until my eyes are red.
    I tried Windows Firewall Control which is an application, I think. As soon as I installed it, it would not allow me to utilize features necessary to run it unless I donated $10.00. It wasn't the cost, it was the way it was done.
    I read about Comodo and feel it may be above my level as is Private Firewall. Both seem very secure.
    I think I will settle for one that will at least take care of outgoing broadcasting and forego HIPS, as important as it is.
    I cannot handle the better ones so back to the drawing board.

    I've tried the recent release (just for fun) and the GUI has been revamped... I prefer the older one. This one is too... odd. Don't know what to tell you about it being better than the default one.

    I had no issues removing their Internet Security Suite.

    I am glad you were without issues. I think I will try to apply the native firewall set properly if I can.
