Don't much like it. If you want a free anti-virus then get the free Avast. If you want a free firewall then get Online Armor. (They work well together.)

If you want to pay for anti-virus then pay for Kaspersky or BitDefender.

I like Comodo's Firewall but not so much their antivirus. When I ran it through a virtual, stable test environment it did well but it let a few items slip by and off port some data. I recommend it in the top 5 for free antiviruses and top 5 for free firewalls, but there are a few that do top it. Like Rkinner said.

I do recommend Comodo Firewall though always instruct the user to choose Custom Install and to uncheck GeekBuddy which is a remote support service.

You don't need that, you have us and we won't violate your computer by requesting remote access to your machine. You never know who is sitting on the "other side" requesting permission to connect to your computer. ;)

For an AV, I like Avast.
