Firefox 3.6.16 and 3.5.18 security updates released as Firefox 4 launches

Just because the shiny, new Firefox 4 is now ready for downloading by the general public doesn't mean Mozilla is turning its back on users who can't (or don't want to) upgrade. Security is a big priority, and 3.X users will continue to see patches for quite some time. In fact, both Firefox 3.6 and 3.5 received security updates in tandem with the Firefox 4 release. The new versions blacklist a...

Comodo releases free Programs Manager utility

Comodo used to be a one-trick pony, but their firewall software was (and still is) an excellent piece of software. In the last couple of years, however, they've begun branching out -- releasing a handful of other applications like a Chromium-based Web browser, free antivirus, and several system utilities. Their most recent offering is Comodo Programs Manager -- a kind of kicked-up version of...

Screenshot Tour: free Comodo Time Machine lets you roll back your whole system

Comodo Time Machine isn't a "Time Machine" in the Apple sense of the word. Rather, it's a way to take a snapshot of your whole system in a certain state and then smoothly roll back to that state once you need it again. The main difference between Comodo and Windows' own snapshot system (restore points) is that Comodo rolls everything back. That means that, by default, all your data is...

Comodo Internet Security 4 adds application sandboxing

Comodo receives much more recognition for their firewall software than they do for anything else they develop, but that hasn't stopped them from venturing outside their comfort zone. In October 2009, they released Comodo Internet Security -- which bundled their popular firewall app with free antivirus defense. It was a good freshman effort, though their AV engine (developed in-house) wasn't...

Comodo Easy VPN is a fast, free Hamachi alternative for Windows

Ages ago, I used a combination of Hamachi and UltraVNC for hassle-free remote support setups. At the time (again, this was a long time ago), Hamachi had a lot of reliability and speed issues - so I ended up switching to TeamViewer. Recently, however, I decided to revisit my options. One alternative I happened upon was Comodo's free Easy VPN application. Like Hamachi, Easy VPN supports multiple...

Six free antivirus programs made for your Windows 7 system

Yesterday, I showed you a pain-free way to get rid of excess software that comes bundled on new systems and replace it with high-quality free programs. Those of you who want a bit more choice than what Ninite offers will probably do your installs manually -- so let's take a look at some antivirus options for your Windows 7 system. There are plenty of pay-for programs you probably already about,...

Wednesday giveaway: Comodo Internet Security Pro

I took Comodo's free Internet Security suite for a test drive when they released it last year, and was pleased with how it performed. The company has been a respected provider of firewall protection for years, so it was nice to see them develop a more complete desktop security solution. The free version is packed with great features, and is an excellent free antivirus/firewall/HIP product for...

Free Comodo Internet Security is here - screenshot tour

As a long-time fan of Comodo Firewall, I was glad to see the company developing a more complete Internet defense application. On October 28th, they released Comodo Internet Security. Why the move? To quote from the press release, Comodo's president Melih Abdulhayoglu believes that "Safe computing on the Internet should be a right, not a privilege." He continues, "We are offering an advanced,...

Comodo Firewall Pro 3.0 released

Comodo Firewall Pro, one of the best firewalls available for Windows XP and Vista, has just been updated to version 3.0. Like all previous versions, Comodo Firewall Pro is free, and we like free. Unlike many other free (and some pay) firewall programs, Comodo has a rock solid record for security; we like this even more. New features in this update include a change to the user interface (it looks...
