  1. I just installed Comodo Firewall and it is stopping access to shell32.dll
    and a few other DLLs. It must be somewhere in it many lists but I can't find
    where it is doing it so I can unchecked it or create an exception or
    something. Frustrating as I can open my System in the Control Panel or can't
    view properties of My Computer now.

    While I am quite conversant in computers this firewall may be a little more
    than I need. I just want to be able to monitor all outgoing traffic like I
    use to be able with Sygate. But since Symantec took it over they screwed it

    Thanks for any help.

    I'm still using Sygate 5.6 which was there last release before Symantic
    screwed it up. It's still available (Google it) and it works well without
    all the extra crap of newer firewalls

    I'm still using version 5.5, build 2710 without any problems. Go back
    to Sygate!

  5. I see that it is still available all over the internet at various download
    sites. But it no longer works for me unfortunately. I used it for several
    years and it always performed flawlessly Then one day recently it stopped
    and I figured Symantec assassinated it remotely to sell their own firewall.

  6. It? Sorry, but since you top-posted it is hard to determine if you mean
    Comodo (subject of post), or Sygate (in a reply below). Please don't
    top-post. Thanks for your consideration.
    I don't know of any software of this type that will stop working in the
    manner you describe. I have installed Comodo on the Windows PCs of
    several friends, and they have no problem with it. I also had the free
    Comodo on my last Windows machine (donated to charity a couple years
    ago), and it worked very well.
