    Doesn't it automatically get turned off by Comodo?

    Oh I thought maybe it did. I had ZoneAlarm and it turned Windows firewall off for me. Or maybe Windows firewall turned off automatically. Hmmm, don't remember now...

    Ok Thanks guys, I was about to ask the same question, since the search function didn't produce the concrete answers I needed. I've just installed Comodo firewall pro and turned off my window firewall. Hope I did good. lol

    Comodo rocks but it keeps prompting me for program access. :(
