    Hello MT members! I'd greatly appreciate it If anybody would like to help me here, I'm in the situation where I love both Comodo Firewall and ESET Internet Security in terms of protection & customization. Now, I'm thinking about creating a combo between both of them on my system like the following:

    Comodo Firewall configuration (based on cruelsister's settings here + Evjl's Rain's tweaks here and here)
    //All Enabled except (HIPS and Web Filtering)
    HIPS: Disabled based on cruelsister's settings from above.
    Web Filtering: Disabled based on Evjl's Rain's tweaks here.

    What I need:

    Allowing the CFW to do it's job to achieve the maximum security by sandboxing any active malware including Ransomware via the Auto-Containment.

    ESET Internet Security configuration (based on viktik's settings here)
    //All Enabled except (Firewall)
    Firewall: Disabled.
    HIPS: Enabled in Smart mode based on davisd's recommendation here.
    Antispam: Enabled.

    What I need:
    Allowing ESET IS to do it's job to achieve the maximum security by taking fully advantage from Internet Security modules like Antispam and Botnet Protection.

    Question for All:
    Do you think that this combo with above settings would work properly without any protection break? Will they conflict in any way?

    Questions for @Evjl's Rain:
    1. Could you please let me know how do I whitelist Comodo Firewall folders in ESET IS settings?
    2. Do you think that ESET IS in default settings is blocking Comodo Firewall Sandbox from working? if so then which settings/virtualization settings should I disable it to avoid conflict with Comodo Firewall Sandbox? Note: I still remember that you disabled hardware-assisted virtualization in Avast to avoid conflict with Comodo Firewall Sandbox here

    Big thanks to the following respected members who served our beloved MT forums by providing us with a useful tutorial, configuration and recommendation...
