    Wow, your firewall is active all, whether frequent crashes or your computer is running very slow?
    advice from a newbie, use only one firewall :)

    Check that you have latest updates (SP3) for Office 2007 or check via Windows Updates. Simple config.

    What backup and recovery options do you have available?
    For example: A system image or recovery discs.

    as i mentioned above i use only usb for backing up only some important files.if something serious happen i shall do a format of the drive and reinstall windows.i must tell you that i haven't done a format for more than 2 years and i think the time is closing to do so.after that be sure that i will ask you for a back up or image software ;)

    Does it slow down your laptop ? Comodo AV is good, but ESET is Good + Light which means good for old laptop :D

    Update
    Upgrade Comodo to version 8 and tried on default settings for a few days.
    Added Slimjet x64 browser as an alternative to PaleMoon.
    So far i like Slimjet i think it's lighter than Chrome;)
    PaleMoon after update to v.25 i have some freezing and it's not flash player problem.

    frogboy yes slimjet is good and i am thinking also to switch to cyberfox but not sure yet because until v.25 Palemoon was the most stable browser i have ever used.
    I am waiting new update that may solve my problem;)

    I think that all of us use 2 firewalls (hardware + software firewall). I think that you missed that he use Comodo Antivirus not Comodo Internet Security :) Greetings @Adhit Prakosho :) Oh sorry Adhit i now see he's using ESET and on config page it is Comodo AV...however software + hardware firewall is not overkill
