Editors' Review

Comodo Firewall 7.0 takes over the tasks of the default Windows utility. It has a very modern interface and offers enhanced protection via an up-to-date cloud database, and also includes application whitelisting, a safe Web browser, and an interactive situation update system.

Pros

Effective protection: For a free program, Comodo Firewall has some pretty powerful features that really keep you safe from intrusions. It even includes a GeekBuddy subscription, a threat scanner function, and Comodo Dragon, its own safe browser. The best part is the cloud database that informs you about types of threats and guides your decisions based on well laid out options.

Application sandbox: This great feature allows you to run suspect applications in a safe context without risking infecting your computer. Activation of the automatic sandbox feature also reduces the amount of required user input.

Cons

Requires too many decisions: For an application that's supposed to run in the background, it requires more than average user input. Pop-up messages are generally informative with clear options, but you may be occasionally prompted about a DLL file that you have never heard of before.

Intervenes with core computer work: Even though we undertook testing on a 15" laptop, we still found pop-up messages to be far too large, obstructing our core tasks. It would be preferable to have smaller message windows that can be expanded to their full informative version with a single click.

Bottom Line

Comodo Firewall efficiently protects your computer from all kinds of external threats. It successfully mobilizes the latest features and cloud technology, offering a good user experience overall. Although it might be slightly complicated for novice users, it is certainly a meaningful upgrade from the default Windows firewall.

"Effective, but flawed"

October 13, 2014  |  By dedgren

 |  Version: Comodo Firewall 7.0

Pros

Could be very good a identifying problems usually.

Cons

Annoying, frequent pop-ups. The final straw was when it would not let me access the Dell website. Even after I deleted all of the components I could find and restarted my computer it continues to block the Dell website.

Summary

Comodo has become a worm.
