I started using comodo a while ago but am astounded at the number of alerts I get when logged onto the internet and then starting up and using other applications on my laptop. It almost seems every programme I open wants to connect to the internet and when i say 'deny' it stops the internet operating correctly (firefox). I then have to log out and back in again. As an example I'm using the internet to trace family history. I have open on my laptop the LDS family history software package. When and only when, I'm making an enquiry on a search within an internet website (eg FREEBMD) i get a pop-up saying that the LDS package wants to connect to the internet!!?? With my previous package MacAfee I never had any pop-ups asking me to authorise a programmes access to the internet so seeing the number coming up using comodo is a bit of a worry - OR - should it be a worry? It seems as if comodo gives me more control over what logs onto the internet but it gives me more headaches into what the hell is going on. I'm a bit of a suspicious person! I think I'm becoming paranoid!
