Yeah, Windows firewall is pretty good. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't check stuff that connects to the internet from inside your computer. It only protects from the baddies outside. So if you already have malware, or something snuck through, it could connect to the internet and download more malware, or if it is a backdoor, then it could let the hacker take control of your computer. Comodo firewall protects from all that and more. Of course you're gonna have to get used to it if you're gonna use it because it does tend to pop a lot of messages. For example:
"Do you want to allow Firefox to connect to the internet" Just click "Yes and make a rule". Then it won't bother you again about Firefox. Just keep doing that for anything you don't want CFW to block and it won't bother you for it again. It's a very handy tool and I really like using it, though some people hate pop-ups so I wouldn't suggest it for them. MSE and Comodo firewall work great, here are the exclusions:

This is how you do it: CFW ---> Defense+ ---> Defense+ Settings ---> Execution control Settings ---> Detect shellcode injections (i.e. Buffer overflow protection) ---> Exclusions ---> Add ---> Browse... and then go to the Microsoft Security Essentials folder (in Program Files if 32 bit, or Program Files 86 if 64 bit) and add all the files.
-Curtesy of Valentin N from Comodo forums

Next go to MSE and click on the Settings and find the excluded files and add all the things in the Comodo folder (click "Add" then browse to the Comodo folder and one by one select all the files that are in the Comodo folder. Then just click "Save changes" and then close MSE and reboot computer. You should be all set!

Hope this helps. I know this is a lot of work but once you set it up, it's pretty easy. You'll rest well that you're protected.

Good luck! If you have any problems, ask here and I or one of the other forum members, Admins, and Mods, will help you out. Have a good day!

No prob pgrace0154 :) Have a nice day.

P.S: If you're still thinking about the tutorial videos, they're on my previous post. (This is page 2, just go one page back to the first page). You can just click the links, all the videos are YouTube videos that I found. Good luck, and stay safe.
