    Default Comodos free firewall now works with Windows 7 !

    hi !



    i have done some new tests with Comodoīs free firewall on W7, Firewall and AntiVirus Free Software Download from Comodo
    now it seems to be working OK, it didnīt work with W7 beta.

    i did my usual test with:

    1. Gibsons "Security test" & "Leaktest" https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

    2. Comodoīs "firewall package test" (CLT) http://download.comodo.com/securitytests/All_tests.zip

    it was completely Stealth and had only ONE leak with CLT while testing with my admin account, when i tested with my normal user account there was *NO* leaks.

    i also run ALL tests on testmypcsecurity, Internet Security Web Testing Security Software for Desktop Network Security

    and it passed almost every test (only missed 3), so i think we may call this a VERY good firewall !

    and best of all: itīs FREE !

    as a bonus i also found that MSE works, it started screaming about "virus" when i started the tests from mypcsecurity....

    btw. iīm using Comodos firewall together with MSE now, and i have not noticed any problems.

    very good work hackerman1.

    I personally no longer use and reccomend Comodo 'cause of their ask.com toolbar even if it's possible to uncheck it during installation.
    Please, tell me, do you remember what leak test Comodo FW couldn't pass?

    Thanks in advance

    hi !

    no, iīm sorry but i donīt remember exactly, there are many tests in the BIG test-package.

    i thought i could, so i didnīt write it down...

    but one of them were SSS ( System Shutdown Simulator).

    it failed:
    1. Intercept system shutdown call.
    2. Shutdown computer.
    3. Create Eicar testfile.

    the first time i tested "Create Eicar testfile", MSE was turned off in order to do the tests,
    i then tried a second time with MSE on, and it immediately reacted and stopped the testfile.

    it also failed an earlier test, but i canīt remember which one.

    And TEST (Test.exe) gave me a BSOD, so i couldnīt run that one.

    Just one thing with Commodo and that is the tool bar.Check Donna's Security flash for information and upadtes on this.

    hi !

    yes, i know about the "ask"-toolbar.

    itīs bad they try to force that to be installed on your computer,
    but if you donīt want it, you CAN unselect it during installation.

    but it has nothing to do with how good the firewall performs...

    It is no longer the "Ask" toolbar installed with Comodo. Ask was replaced with yet another IAC toolbar -- HopSurf. From the EULA (not available at installation) HopSurf EULA

    "1.5.The Toolbar and the Services are not intended for use by or availability to persons under the age of 18.IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE, YOU MAY NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL OR USE THE TOOLBAR AND YOU MAY NOT ACCESS THE SERVICES."
    So, what kind of material does the HopSurf toolbar include when users must be at least 18 years old? So much for a so-called "security" company. Bah!
