    In case anyone is wondering, here's some of the fixes for those that had problems.

    Difference is Comodo is a WINALL app. The free OA version is XP only. The full version is billable.

    The performance is improved only slightly!? Oh well, guess I'll have to wait and see how this version turns out. :)

    Here we go again. I downloaded the new version and everything seems to be working fine.

    Actually, I found out during installation of the updated V3, that "basic" lowers defense checking in the image execution control settings. I originally thought it only installed the firewall, without D+. It's still active.

    That said, with the exception of a few minor glitches, plus my own learning process, the "fixed" version is working awesomely. It's been two days now and I seldom get a pop up.

    I don't believe the release I'm using now will cause serious crashes as AKAJohnDoe and I experienced with the 1st v3 release.

    What few minor problems remain that some are having should be fixed in the next week or two.

    That's good to hear Hiker! I'll probably switch back when it's released to everyone

    Yeah, that's probably a good idea. Rumor has it, it will be next week.

    Hmm that's interesting. When I tried Basic, both were installed. But D+ was disabled in that the module didn't load. CFP showed a smaller memory footprint with it disabled. Oh well. Hopefully all the issued get worked out.

    How much of the "anti-PEBKAC" feature set can be turned off in this program?

    I guess I'm looking for something similar to the slightly ancient Tiny/Kerio Personal Firewall version 2.x, which allowed me to define a very specific, ordered ruleset with a "block everything" rule at the end (hits on this would be logged) and be done with it. I don't need/want learning modes with annoying popups, included anti-virus/-spyware/-spam/-xyz, intrusion detection and everything else that's being botched into general-purpose "security suites" these days.

    Any recommendations would be appreciated :)

    You can make your own rule changes and disable the pop ups in Defense +, which monitors memory, and can also be disabled. Right now the version I have (3.14. xxx) is open to any one that registers on the Comodo forum. However, there will be another build out next week.
