I use Comodo Firewall myself, I'm sure it's good at what it does. But even so, I find it to be somewhat overpowering, officious and aggressive. The new version of Spyware Terminator is also seems to be emulating Comodo's attitude. I would prefer them to be more in the background and self-affacing, like AVAST.
Also, further to this neither of them seem to like AVAST even though I have given them the information that AVAST is one of the good guy's. They still try and stop it going about its lawful business.
I think there is a problem here that`s mainly to do with the number of Comodo products, what they consist of, and what they are called.
I have Avast which I have no intention whatever of getting rid so I thought installing Comodo Internet Security would be a mistake, since it has an AV component that would inevitably conflict with Avast, so opted for the Firewall only.
The update before last, however, put a startup key called cfp into Windows startup (in msconfig) that caused the splash screen to come up when windows started ... the firewall key (also called cfp) was there already. The difference between them only came to light when Marko 797 suggested using Ccleaner Tools/Startup for more information.
I disabled CIS startup which seems to have cured the unwanted splash screen at startup but yesterday I also had the offer of another CIS update which I have not yet installed. What would be the point of installing an update for a program (CIS) that I don`t have?
I`ve put a question in the Comodo forum about this but as yet had no definitive reply.
