NOW that Comodo firewall had me screwed up---FOR DAYS.
At certain times--especially after midnight--my mail was ALL screwed up from Live Mail or Outlook Express.
It wouldn't send--I'd get a 'server timed out' message.
Even on line, it wouldn't send the mail, nor could I upload photos to forums--here too.
I totally shut the firewall off & the same thing happened.
It made no sense, as I had authorized the firewall for these programs & was getting no prompts.
So, after a reinstall of my mail programs, Windows & much cursing,
I talked to my IP tech & he mentioned a firewall problem, so on a hunch I completely uninstalled it.
Everything immediately went back to normal & much faster, too.
So, as fate would have it, I was invited by Microsoft to install Windows OneCare, so I did.
I wonder how long this will work--it has built in firewall, PC tuneup, antivirus & anti spy programs & backup .http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-us/default.htm
So far, so good-----
