You will need to trust the other pcs on your network otherwise they will be treated as hostile. You should not really have any problems; if they are detected you can work with them. You would not trust something which was not on your network. To use a firewall you usually have to tell it which sites are OK and which are not. If you have a program you explicitly want to allow through your firewall be it comodo or one care, eg hotmail you need to put this on your whitelist or allow list. Most firewalls block by default and you have to tell them to allow the things which allow you to work. Just because your network can see them it does not mean they are allowed through your firewall.

Get AVG off your computer, and try again..that comodo firewall is quite enough, and you can then use Norton Internet Security in association with Comodo.

Don't panic!

Commodo has detected some sort of networking in your set-up. This is probably because you have got more than one computer connected via a router.

If your computers are connected solely by cables then you can safely allow it to trust the others.

If you have some sort of wireless connection, or are using a wireless router (even if you do not actually use the wireless part) then it is still safe to do so as long as you have enabled the security on the wireless connection (WEP or ideally WPA) otherwise your computer(s) could potentially be hacked into by an unauthorised person accessing your network.

Either way, trusting the network simply means that Commodo will not try and block any traffic between the computers. It will not lower the level of protection you get from the internet.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Do i need to install anything before using my notebook on the net


Yes, you should have firewall and antivirus programs installed to protect your notebook from the myriad of malware threats that exist on the internet.

If you are running Windows XP with Service Pack 3, Vista or 7, then you have a built in Windows Firewall which should be enabled if no other firewall program is installed.

There are a variety of both free and commercial security products available which will offer good protection for connecting to the internet.

AntiVirus tools
Microsoft Security Essentials http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/products/security-essentials
AVG Anti-Virus Free 2012 http://free.avg.com/gb-en/homepage
Avira Free Antivirus http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus
Avast! Free Antivirus http://www.avast.com/en-gb/index
Integrated Security Suites
Comodo Internet Security Free http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/free-internet-security.php
Outpost Free Security Suite http://free.agnitum.com/

Of the above I have been using Comodo Internet Security for some years and find it very good.

Important Note: Do not install more than one AntiVirus program as this will cause problems. Windows Firewall can be enabled when another firewall program is installed but isn't necessary and most firewall programs will automatically disable Windows Firewall when installed.

I cant install yahoomessenger its asking for firewall settings which i cant understand where to do that


A system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.
to disable firewall
  • Right-click on My Network Places
  • Select Properties
  • Double click Local Network Connection or Modem
  • Click Advanced
  • Uncheck Internet Connection Firewall

thats where u cud find the firewall settings on ur windows....

and also if ur using any antivirus... u wud be required to diable the firewall settings there as well
