  6. Tip of the Day Many people think that 'formatting' a hard drive will wipe out all the data so it cannot be recovered
    Not so. To prevent the possibility of future recovery, use a third-party, low-level hard drive formatting tool, such as Killdisk (downloadable at no charge from www.killdisk.com) to overwrite data on the hard drive with a random sequence of 1's and 0's.

    Correction: If you didn't install the Antivirus, then you would be using Comodo Firewall and not CIS.

    I have found Panda URL Filter to be effective, and since I'm no fan of alternate DNS services, I can't comment on them.

    You may want to try WOT for Firefox. Overall your config looks good.

    So if your not running CAV then you are no longer using CIS. So your real time is only Comodo Firewall with D+. Why not use CIS to its full potential?

    Use an antivirus. You can get something like AVG free, Avast, Avira.

    Hi Guys.
    I have edited my config now.
    The installation of CIS was the custom installation without AV and GeekBuddy ;)
    Awaiting CIS 6 sometime next year and will give AV another try.
    Considering a freebie AV solution as suggested.

    Cheers,
    Panda filter is exceptional. prefer this over Traffic Light which slowed down browsing a touch.
    May give WOT a whirl sometime (But use SSL Scroogle as search engine and careful what i click )
    Thankyou

    There is no point in install CIS if your not going to use CAV. Comodo offers each component separately. So then you should uninstall CIS and install Comodo firewall with your choice of a free av to avoid any conflicts. Installing suites and then disabling certain features is never a good practice to get into.

    The antivirus component was never installed (please read post previous) as i made a custom install.
    I am considering a freebie AV to run along side.

    I understand it was never installed but its good practice.This is why Comodo offers Comodo stand alone firewall. The av is still in the package. Just advice to avoid conflicts.

    Thanks for your advice, I was advised that the latest installers were packed this way to avoid such conflicts.
    Maybe I'll PM egemen at Comodo to be sure.

    Egemen is a good guy and your probably all set. But if that was the case then Comodo should take the separate installers off there site and everyone can just download CIS. To each his own so its your choice. If I wasn't needing an entire suite then I wouldn't download it in the first place. Have a good day.

    Updated config considerably, now resembles Fort Knox :)
    Added avast Free / Sandboxie / BDTL / EMET 2.1 / Keyscrambler Personal and main browser Comodo Dragon 16.1
    Still puny lightweight memory config and extremely resistant.
    Thanks to all for suggestions, you have all been a mine of info :)

    Waiting on Comodo Internet Security 5.9 (due any day) until i test anything else.
    May run with this when released for a while.

    #1, Avast sandbox is still in baby stage.:D

    #2, The sandboxes work differently as the Avast sandbox (free version) will automatically sandbox files and programs that are classified by Avast as unknown/suspicious. Using SBIE (free version) you can choose to run sandboxed any application that you want. This is something that you can not do with the Avast sandbox.

    #3,On the paid versions, you can choose what to run sandboxed with Avast but as far as I know, files can not be saved out of the sandbox. That is a killer if you want to use a sandbox.

    Anybody using SBIE and Avast, should disable the Avast sandbox in my opinion, to avoid probable conflicts.

    @ Mclovin, what my spokesman said :)
    avast!'s is definetly in it's infancy, feel more secure using Sandboxie.
    Don't forget the sandbox is enabled in Comodo also for any stray rogues.

    Sandboxie'sandbox is based on full virtualization unlike CIS which is based on policies. they work differently so it is why they dont conflict each other. (this will change when CIS v6 sandbox will come with full vurtualization too)
