Come to think of it, i've seen several sites advising to remove comodo as its filter driver screws with drive performance.

Just install security essentials on there, your modem/router will be sufficient to prevent hacking in most cases.

oh and my windows 7 install is hosed right now so i dicided to see if i couldnt get xp running i was running combofix in xp safe mode and it had me restart so i did into normal mode and got the task manager open and say that comodo was taking up all my cpu go figure.

we now have proff that it messes with the hardrives performance by to much and makes the system unusable.

That's strange, I found Comodo to be the least CPU intensive compared to Avira or AVG. I did notice it was actively scanning torrent pieces as they downloaded which caused additional disk write hits, but adding the torrent client to the exception list did the job. Are you sure you didn't set the defense level to paranoid mode or something?
