Does Malwarebytes have a firewall? MABM has the best PUA and antifake protection in the industry. And It has a good antiexploit and antiransomware protection. Comodo has it all by isolating all ,,unknown". The problem is how to set Comodo -that is true. For me - now problem. Fallow cruelsister's suggestions. With the best regards. I hope You won't be offended by my comment ( I understand English very good, but my writing and speaking are very bad).:)
No not offended by your comment at all. I was somewhat making a joke with MB's pretty low quality and putting it over Comodo. (Which I still think beats it in most aspects.) I kind of compare Windows updates to it. It can either be buggy as crap or work perfectly normal, I was the later so I am giving a precaution to users that might want to test this product.

Solarlynx, i had that problems with installing the newest version of comodo. After all problems: I downloaded Comodo 7 offline installer. Installed it. Updated it to ver 8. After updated to ver 10. No problems.
Thanx again. Finally it worked. As usually Comodo was very stubborn to installation. All attempts to install version 7 failed - got installed but then after logon to any PC account an empty desktop appeared. Then I tried ver 8, FW, and voila. It updated to current 10.0.1.6258. Works fine. There appeared new button "Unblock Applications".

The type of certificate you purchase from a CA (Premium, EV, etc.) does not really dictate the "level of encryption" that it can be used with. You never (at least, you shouldn't) give your private key to the CA, you generate that yourself and keep it secure, and then generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) that goes to the CA. They then give you a signed x509 certificate back. These are the private and public RSA keys, and you can generate the private key as large as you want - for example, I've generated plenty of 4096 bit RSA keys and gotten certificates for them from Gandi.net, even though their marketing says the product is for a "2048 bit key".

Further, once you install that certificate on your web server (or whatever else you're using it for) you get to decide what TLS/SSL ciphersuites to enable. You most certainly can choose only ones which will satisfy PCI-DSS requirements, and even more so. I suggest checking out Mozilla's great documentation on the subject, which can help you come up with a truly great TLS server configuration with some of the best ciphersuite selection available today: Web Development

Premium or not, you should make sure your CA, such as Comodo, is providing you with a SHA2 signed certificate, as certificates signed with SHA1 are being phased out, and started to become untrusted. Google Chrome for example, now shows a warning for sites which have certificates signed with SHA1 only.

I came to Emisi's OnlineArmour, jetico, Privatefirewall, and finally Comodo.
I think that it is a well-made product such as applying group rules and changing the priority of rules.
However, looking at the official forum, you can understand why some people show negative reactions to Comodo.
In rare cases, it is an official "Colosseum".:cool:

I gave serious consideration to the Comodo line of products and services and came to the conclusion that Comodo has a strong idea in their works so I've decided to give them my support for 6 months at the very least...starting with the daily goof off systems and make note of Comodo's performance and operation...then slowly migrate their security options to my secured system I reserve for business only. These products are designed to grow with usage and the more subscribers that Comodo can gather up the better the developers can fine tune their bundled suites. Their standalone product line are already top shelf, so bundling the best of their development into one package needs the public...and it won't be long now. I believe Comodo is on the right path and we will witness the other large names to follow suit. This kind of system security very well could carry us for the next 10 years.

I stopped using Comodo's products. They've tired me. Blocking many times secure programs, slow boot time, delay applications. I have two computers. One is with 360 ts and woodooshield, and the other one avg free with syshardener. (I don't use avast with syshardener like
Evjl's Rain because avg is more easy for my daughter) In both of them I have blocked ads. light solutions with good protection

yeah, comodo sometimes blocks too many known safe applications, which I don't want or can't install on my family members' PCs because I don't want to be called for help frequently

I use avast/AVG with my tweaks and syshardener. According to the hub, there hasn't been any bypass yet because of how they work and complement each other

People forgets that they compare cis into antivirus product like avast free that doesnt have firewall brought with it when talking about free products

If you compare avast free, you have to compare that into comodo antivirus not into cis

Today comodo internet security is more use-friendly than it was 10 years ago, you can use it as default settings and yes maybe it sometimes blocks file or two, but you can use common sense to unblock if it really matters

if i would install antivirus product to family member, yeah i wouldnt install cis, i would go with comodo antivirus

But why bother with comodo antivirus, when you can have avast free or kaspersky free?

Cis is for advanced users, who can make a decisions

I setted my brother's Pc with Comodo Firewall with Cruelsister's setting and all is good. Every six months i check the Pc and i see a lot of strange thing blocked, even a worm blocked in Usb (I think all Pc of my brother's office are infected, and all have an antivirus installed). Good job Comodo!

If they only use browser i would just set up any default deny , allow browser and just set rest system lockdown, Like my mother only using chrome.

Its easy to have teamwiever on every family member computer and just help them that way if theyre far away
