Vitali- For a CF download, go here: Free Firewall

and click the free Firewall box.

As to shutting off the anti-malware component:

a). Go into Settings>Advanced Protection>VirusScope and uncheck Enable VirusScope
b). Go into Settings>File Rating>File Rating Settings and uncheck the Enable Cloud lookup box

Personally I don't suggest that you do either of the above as neither VirusScope nor Cloud lookup should present any issues.

Hope this helped!

Thanks very much .
Yeah essentially I thought it was CIS since in the installation process it states so and the process names like CIS.exe confused me a little but if the above would work it would be as light as CF was in one of my old systems not that it wasn't way lighter then any AV I tested before hand but every small improvement count's in overall system responsiveness :)

I installed all of CIS, including antivirus. It's not the best in tests, but it's much, much lighter overall than Win Defender. Total, Firewall and antivirus is running right at 40MB. Scans are a bit slow, but not as slow as Defender on this box, and in the real world, the couple of other people I know swear by Comodo antivirus. I think it's the firewall that's caught stuff, and they think it's antivirus. All in all, Comodo firewall will do the job, and maybe the AV will help a little.
