RE: NCLR need recommendation on improvements.

Comodo now has a huge whitelist so it should be a lot better for you.
You should get Comodo Firewall or PC Tools Firewall Plus because they have HIPS components. Something like GeSWall or Bufferzone is also recommended.

RE: NCLR need recommendation on improvements.

Your setup is not that bad. NoScipt is very powerful when it comes to protecting you.

I agree with elliotcroft.
A strong HIPS would complement your setup very well. I would recommend either Comodo Firewall or Online Armor Free. Both are free. However, I would recommend Comodo Firewall as I believe it to be more powerful and also more user-friendly. Here's a guide I wrote for how to install and configure Comodo Firewall. link

Please try it out and see what you think. Do be aware that you will have to answer some prompts in the beginning about whether or not to allow applications to run, but there shouldn't be that many. Also, after these initial questions the program should be very silent while providing you with excellent protection.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks.

Haha! Ok did´nt realize that i used faul language. I promise to improve my language-skills. But since english isn´t my native language it sometimes get hard.
You recommend comodo firewall! Does that mean you suggest that i stick with MSE or do you recommend a change to the whole comodosuite??
I´ll look into GeSWall and bufferzone!
Thanks for the advice!

Both MSE and Comodo Antivirus are very good, but since Comodo Firewall already has Cloud Scanner, you already have the power of the Comodo engine without having to remove MSE. I'd stick with MSE.

You should be fine with MSE & Comodo if that's what you choose, of course I like using CIS in its entirety. You can also check out SuperAntiSpyware & Hitman Pro for on demand scanners.

RE: NCLR need recommendation on improvements.

Hmm. I might try Comodo once again. Is default settings enough to provide ok security and be manageble by me or should i go with other settings?

My previous experiences with comodo was ALOT of warnings and stuff about all sorts of processes i had and hadn´t heard of. Denying or accepting was not easy and therefor i felt that the protection was inadequte since i did´nt know which to deny and it ended up in kind of guessing.
I also had problems with online gaming due to the games processes being denied. Hopefully this has improved since then.

This installation will be on a not newly formatted computer (about 4 month). Will this give me a lot of trouble with the problems described above?

@Chiron: Online armour for x64, is that really free??

And thx for answers.

It has improved, with its fairly large whitelist, and its sandbox. Not many alerts at all, unless installing something unknown/suspicious. Or, if you change the settings (I'm using D+ on paranoid :p).

RE: NCLR need recommendation on improvements.

I would recommend changing the security level to Comodo Proactive security (Right click on the comodo tray icon then go to configuration and select it) then go open the interface then go to defence+ then Defence+ settings. Go over to the execution control tab and change the drop down box to restricted.
Hope this helps.
:great:

Any important reason why he should do this? nclr11111 just said that he didn't want many alerts, since he didn't know how to answer some. Won't this configuration give him more?

I personally keep it on mostly stock settings most of the time, other than having it tweaked here and there. Linkscanner has proven to be useful for me as well.

Something, I know that it does stuff, but I don't know what exactly.

Wow congrats on the splenduperous observation! :whistle:

I know it changes something. Since I think the sandbox stays mostly the same, it will only increase the alerts nclr11111 gets. It is his call though: a bit more possible security and more alerts (though if he answers wrong, it may be worse than letting CIS handle it), or less security and less alerts.

Suppose you're right.

I agree. I would keep it stock until he learns the program, then he can tweak it as he goes if he wants. He made mention of too many popups before.

The sandbox set to restricted is a good first step without increasing alerts.

Yes, that is what I did when I started using Comodo wayyyy back in 2007 (or 06). Just kept it default until I studied up on the Comodo forum and other places online (though Comodo gave more alerts then).
