Sorry for this novice question, but I don't follow your statement that CF is like Avira + CF. I didn't think CF included Avira, did you possibly mean the free version of CIS which includes their firewall? TIA, this looks like it could be an interesting combo worth evaluating further!So I installed this, by itself....Very fast, low use of resources....
Then installed Comodo Firewall with it, since that is like Avira + Comodo Firewall, without the luke file walker, and GUI.....
Used CS settings, and all set....
PC very responsive, Apps open super fast, no web slowdowns ETC,
I guess English isn't his first language. What he meant is that using Thor Vigilance with Comodo Firewall provides the same as Avira Free with CF without the Avira nags.

Thanks for the post. Made me look for the discount code. This appears to be a good time to buy Heimdal's security solution. The coupon/voucher code "blog70" results in a discount of 70 percent off. Enjoy! There are more than a few features that make this product attractive.
HelloThere's also a lifetime promotion on StackSocial that appears to be an even better deal: A Must-Have Addition to Your Antivirus: Close Security Holes to Prevent Cyber Attacks!
There is irrational exuberance around this product.
It has never been that good.
As Heimdal Pro, it had three components.
1. Filtering. Look at Evjl's Rain's tests of filtering (right here at MalwareTips). Heimdal did not do very well. There are better filters out there that produce fewer complications. The two free products of MBE-B & Netcraft offer superior results.
2. Software Update. According to their own numbers... the software update of free patchmypc or Sumo far exceeds what Heimdal updates.
3. Outbound connections. Many security apps can cover this. Although I'm interested in finding the best one..
And then... like many security apps finally discover... the market for people who want to pay for more than one security product is limited. So like MBAM and so many others... a 'full product' is produced as a replacement for an AV/Firewall.
Thus Thor Vigilance was born. Oh, and watch. Cylance will eventually arrive at the same conclusion.
Assumption -- so if you use Thor Vigilance -- you now have to use the Thor Vigilance AV -- it is not a supplemental product like MBAM.
But I don't want to use Avira (the Vigilance AV).
In the meantime, there have been lots of technical issues for those using these products. And the company cannot keep their messaging and information correct.
And... Generally, good products don't have 'fire sales' regularly. They don't need to.
Several people here at MT whose opinions I respect seem to like this product. So I may be totally wrong in my assessment. Time will tell.
But here is my prediction. When AV-C or other testing labs put this product through a full comparative test -- it will end up testing as a very mediocre product.
My verdict: Heimdal (aka Thor) is an overhyped Dog.
That is all.
