Can one install the new Comodo Firewall without the Sandbox, or disable the Sandbox? If so how, for either?

Telling the truth, I have no idea, what your question is...

Yes you can disable the sandbox, and if you disable the Defence+ component the sandbox is automatically disabled with it anyway, since the sandbox can't function without Defence+

But you can disable just the sandbox on it's own as well.

Personally I found Comodo all very confusing and "overkill" (well I am 60!) so I changed to something
less brain-taxing but equally effective for my needs. Comodo's high level of sophistication puts a lot of people off as I've been discovering on Comodo's own forum.

Before I try the new Comodo, which firewall did you change to? Since I am 76 I might have the same 'problem' as you with overkill.

I also found Comodo firewall too confusing (59 years old). It asked so many questions that I had no idea whether I was still protected.
I use Zone Alarm. IT pretty much configures itself.
When a program attempts to access the internet, it will ask (allow). You can check it to allow or not.
So it does not ask again you place a check in the box (do not ask again).
