Comodo make the best free firewall in my opinion.

They also make a pretty good anti virus too.. also free.

I used avast for ages but tried comodo a month or so ago and it said I had a trojan so I've been using it since.. I don't think any anti virus is the best though, they all miss things so its good to try other ones every so often.

Kaspersky is another good anti virus, but it's not free.

AVG is also a free antivirus, but it tends to let a little bugger pass from time to time.

I wonder why people are still willing to pay 50€ or more a year for those crappy things like McAfee or Norton Anitvirus. They eat CPU like hell and stop scanning the day your licence runs out...

@GLS: "it said I had a trojan so I've been using it since.. ". Huh If I would make an anti-virus product I would make it say this by default, making the others look bad Devil

I should clarify that I actually had a trojan and the only reason I tried another one was because avast said nothing was wrong with my computer. Something kept trying to connect to my pc every half hour, luckily my firewall kept blocking it, and when I tried comodo it removed it and it stopped. A coincidence? I think not.

Don't get me wrong though; avast is a good anti virus, but none are perfect and everyone should try scanning their computer with a different one every so often. Just to be on the safe side.

AVG is reasonably good anti-virus and Zone-alarm do a very good free firewall.

I would recommend getting urself a secondhand copy of Norton Anti-virus 2004 edition as well. Costs less than 20 quid now i think and u get a years worth of bloody good protection and because its the old version it doesnt slow ur computer down to a snails pace with all the new pointless shit they added to it.

I tried Comodo today and it sucks bigtime IMO


    Requires a registration key (hey you retards, it's free, don't bother!) and thus an e-mail adres. The didn't want my hotmail adres, but they started to send mails on it anyway.

    2 restarts needed for it to install.

    The user interface is nice, but it uses 3 seperate windows, why can't simple shit be kept simple?

    Starts with a messaf that the system needs to be scanned completely the first time (fair enough). 10 mins after I started that scan the shit wanted to install some updates requiring the scan to be interupted (WOOPS?!)

    Updates took ages to get downloaded and installed and yes... another restart!

    The scan engine locked up during the first general scan (after almost 140.000 files and 40 minutes). Pulling the system to almost a complete standstill (and the CPU fan going bananas).

    It discovered some kind of virus which is not discoverd by atleast 5 other scanners (Norton, Avast, E-safe, McAfee, Kaspersky, AVG) so I doubt anything is wrong, especially because it was an oracle driver that was so called "infected", but could not clean it.

    I copied the so called infected CD onto my system from the original cd from which I installed it and did a compare... Equal. But the Comodo thingy let me copy the file onto my HD.

The big difference with commercial products is that atleast this thing is free Noo
