    When I connect internet, I got a virus message: I used Firefox 3.5.1

    By the way, I used comodo firewall but I download from comodo website.
    However, they put "antivirus" and "firewall" together.
    I installed "firewall" only.

    Here is question:
    two days ago, comodo firewall warned that "?explorer" .exe : (Not exactly remember the name all) had suspicious behavior, I had to choose terminate it or not. I choose terminate it but I didn't click memorize the action.

    Do you think it is false behavior or not ?
    Do you think I should download firewall from techspot download or download alternative firewall ?

    Only trained malware cleaning helpers should recommend this program. I notice you have recommended this on 2 threads. best leave that to those who are experienced.
