    screenshots corrected.

    i redone the whole procedure, it worked. be sure to always click "ok" , copy-paste the whole MVPS text and import it as "Host Format text"

    This was the solution and it now works!
    I downloaded the Hosts file in it's native format, and renamed that file as a .txt,then followed the guide posted by Umbra and everything is now working fine!:)

    Thank you to all for your feedback and suggestions!

    Much appreciated:)

    Download the Hosts File (not in .txt format) and then just import it.

    if you followed the procedure properly, the "0.0.0.0" should not appear in comodo list

    Hi Umbra,can you confirm/deny that there is a bug in the webfilter regarding HTTPS sites?

    You can simply enter just that *.google.com* or if you get redirected to other TLDs you can add *.google.* however please note that currently the webfilter does not work against HTTPS websites, a bug report for this has been submitted.

    Thanks!:)

    i confirm , there is a bug; i tested with Facebook; but security-wise, actually you will find very few malicious websites with HTTPS :D
