Muchas gracias, amigo! I wish I could remember what thread that was on where we were discussing firewalls because I asked you a couple questions but I don't think you ever went back.
Just for clarity, I run FF with a shitpile of security ad-ons, including AdBlock Plus, Ghostery, Redirect Remover, BetterPrivacy (selective, manual LSO removal), TrackMeNot, WOT,............. and on and on. The lovely and talented Ms Az taught me everything I know... she's a sharp cookie!
I only use the COMODO Premium Internet Security program, not the browser: AntiVirus, Defense+, Firewall and More.
Now Az... won'tcha please stick around and post with yer lil sissy rice cakes??
I apologize if I did not get back with you on a question, if you can remember it or find it I would be happy to answer anything I could.
Az is really your sister?

Download the following add-on - AdBlockPlus
It blocks most every ad. I never see ads on the PDF.
Also Web of Trust is highly recommended.
Shows what websites you can trust, and which ones to stay away from. Works well.
That should help a lot. Good luck. Have a great day.
No problem, man... I've no doubt you're super busy. I am too, but have the luxury of working out of my home and making my own hours (YIPPEE!!).
No sir, Az is not technically my sister, but she is my best friend and she is as close to family to me as a non-relative can get. As such, we have adopted each other as sisters, although I already had plenty on my side already... she is a welcome addition and I love her so very dearly.
Basically the question I had was concerning your response to me regarding utilizing COMODO for my firewall and disabling my factory-installed, crapass firewall. For your reference, if it might help, I included the following information: 64-bit Windows 7 OS; COMPLETELY crappy HP-G62-339WM laptop. Need to get my trusty ole machine w/XP Professional on it running again. I miss XP Professional AND that machine!
So my question was that I had always heard that you should never, ever run two firewalls at the same time, as they interfere with each other and... well, cancel each other out, for lack of better terminology. Again, please note my above comment that I do NOT run the COMODO browser, just Firewall, Anti-Virus, Defense+... program is called COMODO Internet Security Premium, and it blocks anything it deems to be hinky. It is pretty overprotective (which suits me just fine), and I often have to go in to allow programs to run at which time I can also submit them to COMODO for their analysis and (hopefully!) green-light.
Hope that's all clear as mud.
Yes you should never run two different firewalls or antivirus's on the same PC (Software that you install) most security software will disable windows defender on a windows 7 / 8 PC for this reason. Yeah completely get rid of the crappy factory installed firewall, Comodo is a good firewall for an average PC user. Comodo should also disable the default windows firewall, you can not uninstall the windows firewall without having issues.
The firewall I thought you had disabled was the firewall in your router. That is what I said you should leave on. The firewall in a router is a hardware firewall completely independent of any software that you install on a PC. The firewall in a router is what they call a NAT (Network address translation) firewall. All routers perform NAT as a basic function of the router and the firewall just simply secures the NAT process and hides your private network from the internet. Have you ever had Comodo pop up saying a port scan was attempted or someone attempted to spoof your IP? those are some basic attacks that a NAT firewall would stop.
