Comodo Firewall Reviews

Sadly, an application that has become bloatware

about Comodo Firewall · · Helpful Not helpful

After years of using and loving Comodo Firewall I finally realized that over the years it has grown into a series of unwanted programs if all you want is just a firewall. With no installation option, the latest v10 installs in your system an application that pop-ups all the time called GeekBuddy (for online chat support). Also without permission, installs another Internet browser called Comodo Dragon, and even a desktop Gadget !!!

None of this crap is essential in a firewall, just like other additional meddling features that the bundle "offers" you, as Comodo DNS, Auto Sandbox, Antivirus features, Cloud Based Behavior Analysis, etc.

So, after years of using and loving Comodo Firewall I finally replaced it with a simpler one. If you want a simple firewall there are many options out there, even Freeware and Open Source, just use AlternativeTo to find which one meets your needs.

Comodo try to install a Browser replacement(Chromodo) It try also to replace your DNS with it own DNS. Just after installation, you will get anoying advice pop up. And a secure pop up is alway present on my desktop after install. He install GeekBuddy a messenger which will pop up you when you have an app crash... (wow in a firewall, is this serious or what ?). Sound not very serious...

Comodo, fairly-good reputation over the years.

I used this for quite a while on my older Win2000 and WinXP systems, and it was quite effective at keeping my clients out of the dark recessing of the internet. On the newer systems, running Vista/Win7 or a popular Linux distro, I tend to opt for the integrated firewall for convenience sake. However, as needed, I wouldn't hesitate to trust Comodo, given their fairly-good reputation over the years.

With the latest update, it made impossible allow programs to run. It deleted QQ international which is Skype for Asia and no way to allow it run. It was good now it's just a garbage...
