    Windows Vista."

    Nice. Malware couldn't do a better job than Comodo could, could it ?

    Yes. I love joking but don't include those emoticon things.
    ANY software that will not allow the OS to update and replace system
    files ** IS a joke ** in my opinion. That is *specifically* how malware
    operates.

    A hardware firewall plus the native Windows firewall provides sufficient
    protection and will not hamper the OS nor it's ability to be updated.
    Case, closed. Next !

    Correct, and I don't want to start an argument here, but that's only when
    Defense+ is installed. You have a choice to disable Defense+ when you setup
    the firewall. If it was malware, do you think you would have a choice? No.

    Re: Comodo Firewall update addresses Windows Update problem


    I just found out about this today. I exited Comodo and was finally able to download the patches from Tuesday (which are needed for SP 1). I will download the newer version of Comodo and install it to see if this helps.

    This is an old thread. Comodo Firewall Pro has been updated at least once
    more since these posts were written. Download 3.0.16 from CFPs home page if
    you are going to reinstall.
