i have been using avast! for some time now and i love it
but recently i started using commodo firewall
and i dont know if i like it that much
i have special software installed on my computer that essentially turns off the internet and allows no one to access it unless you unlock the internet with a password
its called inetprotector
anyway commodo firewall somehow bypassed this program and the internet was open to anyone (including my children)
so i uninstalled it
my question is
is avast a firewall or is it just antivirus protection
and if it isn't a firewall, what firewall should i use that won't have this problem?
i also recently installed spywareblaster and spywaregaurd
