Another program in Comodo’s stable of free software is it’s Comodo Firewall, which provides protection against trojans, identity theft hackers, malicious scripts, and other external and internal threats.
I am a sucker for software that looks really cool and professional and is effective to boot, all of which can be said about this one.
From what I’ve read in multiple sources the level and sophistication of this software’s protection is very high.
I’ve been using this one for about a month now and am very satisfied with it, despite a few annoying bugs that were there initially, not least one where the Firewall prevented me from accessing the internet. This has been taken care of in recent updates, though.
Note: Comodo seems to have had problems with a component that came with their software that was difficult to uninstall, but that has since been removed (see my Comodo Antivirus posting). You will also have to provide an email address for them to email you your free activation code. I did this without problems, but you can use a service such as mailexpire to provide you with a
temporary email address that will work as well.
