    I just saw this on their website....anyone tried it? How good is it? And how does it affect system performance? Is it a resource hog?

    Mind you I use NOD32 on my system just asking whether to install this on PCs that I fix or to stick to Avira Antivir FTW?

    I actually have used the comodo suite and I rate it fair. It does not use that many resources but it does have user required popups periodically. The one I tested was an old version mind you and the AV seemed good but there were those false possitives. Overall I would rate the firewall top notch but the AV not so good. I would honestly say that the firewall is much better then ESET's but ESET's AV beats Comodo's. Now they could have made it better with the 2011 version, I really don't know for sure on that.

    Comodo Antivirus is relatively new and is improving all the time, Is it good enough to use as your main antivirus ? I would say not (not yet anyway)

    On the other hand the firewall is top notch !

    What you have to remember when comparing is that the Comodo suite is free and outshines a lot of paid security suites.

    Couple the Comodo Firewall with Avast, Antivir or MSE and you will have top protection... all for free !!

    "BTW Comodo Firewall 5 has been released with a new nice looking UI, much better than the previous versions"

    I'm using Comodo Firewall v5 now :)

    The only reason why I never used 3rd party firewalls in the past was because of the very hard setup.......but this one is very easy to use and tell u if an app is trying to use the net with a possible recommendation to block or allow :)

    Good to know that you decide to use a 3rd party firewalls, Comodo is one of the best in HIPS attack, you are now behind a 99999999999 miles Wall :cool:

    Do they still include that "Ask toolbar" with the installer?

    Comodo's only benefit is their firewall and HIPS. Their antivirus blows. Stick with NOD32 and consider using Comodo's firewall to lock down you system.
