I'm currently using "Comodo Personal Firewall Pro" version 3.14.147648.588. and I have no idea whether I should update to the latest version or keep the one I have right now (as I've been reading on Cnet and dozens of other places problems with version 4 and up). I also read other problems like, you couldn't disable that "Defense+" crap, which is REALLY intrusive (and I found that out for myself when installing version-3 with the "Defense+" stuff enabled, and then later had to reformat my computer's hard-drive again and reinstall my security software (AVG, Spybot, Malwarebytes, SpywareBlaster, Comodo, etc) again, only this time, disable the "Defense+" stuff when installing Comodo.

i know i have to keep all my antivirus software and all that updated (i have the latest version of AVG that i can get [by using the "update"-feature, WITHOUT uninstalling my current version of AVG, downloading the latest version, and then installing it from scratch] (i had version 8 and i updated to version 9.0.856 by doing what i just said, clicking on "update" [from the "avg user-interface" window] and then updating to the latest-available-version [that it gave me to update to]), but, should i update to Comodo Firewall 5, or just stick with what i currently have?


keep in mind that i'm aware that now [stupid] Comodo merged their antivirus with their firewall, and personally, i DON'T want their antivirus. i want just their firewall and that's it (so how can i go about doing that? please guide me in the right direction step-by-step, on how to do that, and how to get JUST their firewall and that's it).

Sorry for the delay.

I believe CIS is 5x now.

You aren't required to use any combo of the AV, HIPS, or packet filter. You can disable any or all.
