"I found this program to be a big disappointment"
I was able to uninstall it. All I wanted was just a firewall and got a whole lot of junk included with it.
The install of the program should have been a warning. They did not offer a custom install and included Geek Buddy with the install and I did not want that. They also do not give you an option to change the install destination folder. After I rebooted I found that it had a monitoring program and was trying to decide for me what programs where going to be allowed to run on my puter. Constant pop ups telling me that a program was trying to load. Worst part about that was even tho I told it to remember that I wanted the program to run it kept coming back and asking. That part is a really bad imitation of ZoneAlarm OS firewall. Total failure and very annoying. The firewall was even worst. I could never find a way to put the firewall in manual mode so I could decide what could come into and get out of my puter. To make that even worst they had a white list of over 15,0000 programs THEY decided was safe. That is always a bad sign when they make it so only they make the decision.
Never trust a company or a firewall that install more then what you want without asking. Never trust a firewall that decides for you what is going to be allowed in or what gets out of your puter. If they had provided a clearer method of editing the white list and a method of putting the firewall in a manual mode would have been a good thing.Let me respond to someone advice to check Matousec to see how good Comodo is. They rate Comaodo Internet Suite not the plain firewall. The other thing you should know is that if you click to buy from that site they get a fee for recommending the program and you buying it. There is no pure firewall review site on the internet. That alone should make you suspect of the review. The second thing is that I invite someone to write a review and explain how to put the firewall in the manual mode so you can choose which programs get into and out of your puter. You would not allow a home security company decide who gets into and out of your house. Of course not. Then why would you let a firewall company decide what gets into and out of your puter. The reason so many of these so called free firewalls are going this route is that the true money is letting corporations get into and out of your puter to spy on your usage and web surfing habits. If a firewall uses the cloud to make decisions run away
