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

  3. Well, then there's Zone Alarm...

    [Wonder how many Comodo users will see this thread?]

    I did but I have Comodo on XP, not Vista, and it works just fine, as do
    Windows Updates.

  5. I'd recommend upgrading to the new version anyway as it includes other
    fixes.

    I ran an update with the console and it says none are available. That
    said, I am running 3.0.13.268. Does the new version install over the top
    or must one uninstall the current install?

    Thanks,

  7. Dunno. What does Comodo Support say?

    Looks like Comodo doesn't offer the update within the console.

    Comodo users can download v3.0.15.277 from
    http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/download_firewall.html

    I guess that leaves uninstalling the present one and installing the new
    one to be on the safe side. Sigh. That's easier than asking on their
    forums ;-)

    I found a support article about the new version having problems if the
    old version isn't completely uninstalled so I guess one has to uninstall
    the older version before installing the new one.

    I'm running Comodo Pro on two machines and paid absolutely nothing. Pro
    *is* the free version. See http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/ where
    it states:

    "Unlike some other 'free' firewalls, this is not a stripped down version
    but is the full, completely functional product. Updates and upgrades are
    also free."

    OK, I sit corrected. So we've come to the conclusion that it's probably
    best to uninstall your current version before installing the new one.

    Which is what I will do. That said, Comodo Pro running in XP is similar
    to UAC in Vista. I'm impressed.
