@Xsjx it sounds like you are trying to fool-proof your system against a click-happy family member.

a third-party firewall won't do that for you, it will only protect you from certain advanced attacks in an internet cafe type of situation. That's not the solution you need for your problem.

I think that zemana with real-time scanning is your best bet. It will catch most of the junk that people tend to download, and it does not require the user to have any advanced computer knowledge. It just works.

The other alternative is to use COMODO Firewall or voodooshield, but it is likely that you will have to provide computer support, because these programs can cause complications.
Also, you have to set them up right, so they will allow what they need to, and block everything else without giving a click-happy user the chance to override the protection. You have to hide those prompts.
For instance, voodooshield should be put in autopilot mode, AFTER you have everything set up just right.
Zonealarm pro firewall also has a aplication control
Zemana is to expensive ( already more than 100 euro for Avira )
So Comodo is left.. but i think it does inteference with Avira..
It´s a great choice
Okay thx ;)

FW shouldn't be a concern as @shmu26 explains. Comodo FW is well appreciated for all its offerings except the FW (not to say the FW is not good).
If you're using sandboxing and/or HIPS of comodo, then only is CFW any good to add to your setup.
If you're just looking for a FW, ZA is nice.


I was a great fan of Zemana. But what I learnt from some of my tests here, and from Evjl Rain, is that Zemana is very aggressive in detecting scripts and other files. Pandora is not anywhere near perfection. It thus increases FPs and it also misses good amount of some formats of malware.
It's difficult to acknowledge, but Zemana won't be that good for a family system in my opinion.
DOesnt comodo Sandbox inteference with Avira?

@Xsjx Since you only asked about EU Antivirus software. Check Point (ZoneAlarm) is not an European-based firm, are you sure you want to use it?

I don't see why it should interfere.

the idea works like this: comodo autosandbox will keep all unknowns in a controlled virtual environment, where it can't hurt your system.
Avira will protect everything else, i.e., everything that you decided to let out of the sandbox.

Hmmm, if its good i can use it ;)
If 'being good' is your main criteria for selecting EU products, many other products from outside EU too come under that criteria :)

Whats the difference between free and pro?
The pro has advanced two way firewall
- early boot protection
- zero hour protection
- advanced access protection against specific network attacks
- application control and behavior protection
and more wireless security features

So pro has behavior protection? so that can fill up Aviras flaws :) ?
