  1. OK. I just wanted to clarify that Comodo doesn´t do that.
  2. As i said above: "Comodo Firewall also has a HIPS (called Defence + in older versions) which, depending on the settings, can be a bit annoying... But the settings can be changed, and the HIPS can be disabled, you don´t have to use it..." I said: "You have to be alert when you install software, not just Comodo Firewall... Otherwise you might get unwanted "extras"." It seems that you misunderstood me. What i meant was that you might get parts of Comodo Internet Security (CIS) that you do not want, fx. Comodo Antivirus. I did not mean that Comodo is trying to make you pay for parts of it, Comodo Internet Security is free. But since you got EAM you fx. don´t need Comodo Antivirus... Anyway, i just installed the latest version on my testsystem, and the only options are: Installation Directory Enable “Cloud Based Behavior Analysis of untrusted files (Privacy Policy) Send anonymous program usage (e.g. crashes, errors, clicks. etc.) statistics to COMODO to improve product quality. Which means that all components are installed by default, but that is not a problem since you can disable the parts that you do not want. However , i discovered another problem after installing it, it doesn´t work properly and it crashes. It also crashes when you try to uninstall it... So if you want a free, and good, alternative to Online Armour, then you might want to try an older version of Comodo Firewall instead. They can be found on Filehippo... And since i´m (still) using CIS v7 i cannot verify how the newer versions work together with EAM. I might upgrade to a newer version later on, to see how it works together with EAM, but that´s another story, and the subject for another thread... ps. the new editor is very confusing when you want to quote.. ds.
  3. You have to be alert when you install software, not just Comodo Firewall... Otherwise you might get unwanted "extras". I haven´t installed Comodo Firewall for a long time, i´m still using v7, so i don´t know how it looks nowadays during installtion, but the last time i tried a newer version there was options to select some or all part of Comodo Internet Security. But that´s a subject for Comodos own forum... Anyway, Comodo Firewall works well together with Emsisoft Antimalware, which is why i recommended it.
  4. I know this forum is not about Comodo Firewall, but i have to make a few comments about your post.... Nag ??? I have been using Comodo Firewall for years, and i have never seen or had any problems with "nagging"... It will alert you when something important is happening, but it´s supposed to do that isn´t it ? However, Comodo Firewall also has a HIPS (called Defence + in older versions) which, depending on the settings, can be a bit annoying... But the settings can be changed, and the HIPS can be disabled, you don´t have to use it... But having a firewall or HIPS that doesn´t alert you when something is going on is like having a guard-dog that doesnt´t bark when intruders are entering your house..
  5. Comodo Firewall is free. And very good...
  6. No, i did not post that ! I confirmed that i had the same problem, as it might be helpful for you to know that Cristian is not the only one afftected. Then i added a comment about the cause of my problems, your forced upgrade to EEK 11... But i understand that you don´t want to hear about it...
  7. I got the same problem (with EEK 11) yesterday... Only EAM installed, no other Antimalware-programs. I fixed it by deleting the whole EEK-folder, and reinstalling EEK 10.... This is one good example of why you should never force upgrades to new versions to be installed on your customers computers....
  8. Is it only via the GUI, or does this also include "commandline" updating with a2cmd/u ?
  9. What are these "Update Settings" (Beta, Stable, Delayed) ? I know what it means in EAM... But does this means that EEK is now also automatically updating to newer program versions ? If so, how do i disable it ? There are no settings to change in a2settings.ini... I don´t want any automatic program updates, if i want a new version i will download and install it manually.
  10. Are you using CIS 8 ? From the thread Emsisoft Anti-Malware and COMODO Firewall: Try CIS 7 (7.0.317799.4142), that version works together with EAM (11.0.0.5984)
  11. IMPORTANT CORRECTION: I made a mistake when i posted above. "My" copy of CIS 7 (7.0.317799.4142) does not come from Filehorse ! I downloaded it directly from Comodo. So i can not verify that the checksum for CIS 7 from Filhorse matches Comodo´s own published numbers. It probably does, but that needs to be double-checked. It was an even older version of CIS that i downloaded from Filehorse..... I´m trying to get the "official" checksums from Comodo, then i will check the downloads from Filehorse.
  12. What is ECC ?
  13. Filehorse (www.filehorse.com) I got the URL from Comodo´s own forum.... And VirusTotal says it´s a clean site. There are no "wrappers", just the file. And the SHA-2 checksum matches the "official" numbers published by Comodo. Would this be OK to post?
  14. Yes, i know that Matousec is a "dirty" word for Emsisoft... (Matousec & Online Armor...) Matousec and it´s tests is a really interesting subject, but for another thread or perhaps even another forum....? However, it is not the subject of this thread... I only pointed out that those who want to use CIS & EAM should note that the testresults are for CIS 7, not CIS 8..... We still don´t know how good CIS 8 is. So there is no panic to upgrade to CIS 8... It´s better to use CIS 7 and avoid conflicts with EAM. The latest version of CIS 7 (7.0.317799.4142) is not available directly from Comodo, but i know where to find it. I have doublechecked the SHA-2 checksum against the "official" numbers published by Comodo, so it really is genuine software. To help those EAM-users who wants CIS 7 I could post the link here... Would that be OK ?
  15. After uninstalling, did you reboot 2 times ? Did you install the latest version (11.0.0.5958) ? I had the same problem with a friends computer, got an errormessage: "could not contact server" But after uninstalling, rebooting 2 times, and installing the latest version (11.0.0.5958) everything works normally again.
