Hi, just removed the best firewall I've ever had, Kerio Sunbelt, as it's driver kept causing the blue screen shutdown when on the net. Not always but usually every other day. So I installed Comodo Firewall. After installation, I clicked on the help button to check out how it works. After 4 attempts, and timing out everytime, I gave up. Now the major use of a firewall that I want is to determine what programs on my PC can or cannot have access to the net. On Sunbelt, all the applicable programs were listed and when opening any program a pop-up would ask me to allow, or deny, and it would remember. On the list you could manually edit it to allow, deny or ask. Brilliant and so simple. So, from what I'd read about Comodo, there was a training mode which I assumed would be like the Sunbelt pop-ups. Apparently not. Now I don't want any programs on my PC accessing the net to keep telling me there's updates or subscription versions available, etc. I will update, but only when I've checked on the net that the bugs have been removed. So many bugs in updates of Flash for example. Anyway I opened a program that I knew would try to access the net and there was no pop-up, and the program opened and all sorts of updates and stuff came up on the screen. Rats. So I found a list of programs in Comodo, which took me a while to find, and on that specific program I right clicked and options appeared. There was no option to allow or deny, just kill process. As I couldn't access the Comodo help files, I wrongly assumed that kill meant deny. So I killed it. Rats. Now I can't open the program as I "Don't have the necessary permissions." I've looked and looked but cannot find a kill undo button/command anywhere. So that program is useless to me now. I undertook an online chat with one of their tech's, who told me that they can show me how to set it all up as I require but I would need to subscribe to the full version of the software. Rats. Wish I could re-install Sunbelt but it's not supported anymore. So, does anyone know how to undo a "kill process" in Comodo? I would sincerely appreciate it if someone does know.
