I have CAV and my settings are:
  • General settings --> Configuration --> Enabled Proactive Security
  • HIPS --> Disabled
  • Containment --> Auto-containment --> Block unknown
  • Containment --> Auto-containment --> Added exclusion for "Portable SW" folders
In my opinion you can just install the AV, no need of FW (which causes several issues on Windows 10).
If you wanna check why, please read here SECURE: Complete - imuade's Security Configuration 2019

I have Comodo Firewall at CS settings. I also have enabled HIPS ( it took me 15 minutes in learning mode to click on my main apps) No issues on Windows 10 and Comodo is very quiet. In the last 2 years, I had one problem: Comodo opened a window whenever I ran Chrome. It took Comodo a few weeks to find a fix. I disabled the web filter: I use Emsisoft Browser Security.
I have a backup of my settings so the installation of a new version of Comodo is super fast.
Windows Defender is my antivirus.

To maximize protection, in advanced settings put the embedded code protection at maximum by moving the slider to the right for all the entries. Move the slider back only for those particular processes that cause you problems. If you are lucky, none of them will cause you problems, but the most likely problem-maker is cmd.

I used Comodo Firewall 10th version on the settings offered by Maxim Boyarenko (this person maintains a whole blog about Comodo on the Russian forum and offers a variety of configuration settings for versions 10-12. Установка COMODO Internet Security 10-12. Упрощенная инструкция по настройке и использованию - Блог Comodo You may find optimal settings for yourself specifically for your PC. Personally, this firewall didn’t work for me due to compatibility issues with Kaspersky Anti-Virus. Despite the fact that these programs were listed as Exceptions from each other, malfunctions in the work of the antivirus were observed. Using this firewall. Before Kaspersky Anti-Virus, I had Avast free and had no compatibility issues.

Try Kaspersky FREE Antivirus, it has a better chance of compatibility with Comodo firewall.

This was Kaspersky free antivirus. It seems that this antivirus cannot get along with the Comodo firewall, in this bundle the antivirus is constantly turned off and cannot work correctly.

Did you install Comodo Internet Security, or Comodo Firewall?

Some people, such as myself, are frustrated by what seems to be random blocking of system processes by various components of Comodo Firewall.
For instance, take a look at the screenshot in this post
What does Maxim say about this sort of thing? Is there a cure?

I installed Comodo Firewall (not Internet Security).

Unfortunately, I am not so well versed in the intricacies of Comodo Firewall (I used it for only a month in conjunction with Avast, and 10 minutes in conjunction with Kaspersky), as Maxim understands, who studied it to the smallest detail. I can only ask him to say what he thinks about your question. I am not a fan of this firewall, so I don’t know all the subtleties of its work, and this is a very complex software product.

Thanks. Let us know if you find out anything. I am perplexed by some of the system process blocks. It seems to happen to a lot of people, but not everyone.

Judging by the screenshot, it was not a system process that was blocked, but a program for video conversion or some kind of program for download of videos. It is not known from what source the user took this program (it happens and how unwanted software is distributed), hence the reaction of Comodo Firewall. IMHO.

Also, to make combos in general with Kaspersky, You should install it 1st, and then the other security solution...
First, I deleted Avast Free, then I deleted Comodo Firewall, then I installed Kaspersky Free, and then I installed Comodo Firewall again. Since I heard that this firewall should be installed in the system after installing the antivirus.

Looked closer, and because Comodo Firewall on the screen blocked the activities of the program for taking screenshots from the screen. It is possible that the proactive defense worked on the behavior of this program, which Comodo found suspicious.
