Welcome to the Norton Community.
What version of NAV do you have? You can find this from Support > About. Also what OS and SP (service pack) do you have and is it 32 or 64 bit?
Which Comodo product are you wanting to run? Unless I am missing something I don't believe they have a firewally only software any more, though you might be able to unselect all choices but the firewall during install. Don't know how well this works though. I found a discussion on Comodo's forum talking about this.
If you are able to successfully unselect all components of Comodo except the firewall then it might be OK. Here is another thread of interest on this topic,
Regarding the Norton safeweb plugin. Can you confirm if you are using the 32 or 64 bit version of IE and Mozilla? NAV will only work with the 32 bit version.

Hello and thaks for your fast replay :)
1. WIn 7 64
3. Firewall only, yes they have option to download/install firewall component only.
4. Yes, 32 bit version of Mozila and 64 bit version of IE, the safe web aint work in both, any option to reinstal it or something?

Thanks very much for the information. We cannot do anything to get safe web to work with IE 64 bit. If you want to use IE with safe web, you will need to run the 32 bit version which is also included with the Windows OS.
I assume you mean Firefox, what version do you have? It should be 3.6.13 which is the latest version.

Thanks again for your help. it is 3.6.13 version, i only got Norton IPS as a plugin, no safe web.
And what about the conflicts part, any suggestion about it? thanks!

If you go to View menu in Firefox and then Toolbars, you don't see Norton toolbar? If this is listed then make sure it is checked also.
Otherwise go to Firefox Tools menu and select Add-ons. What do you see here? You should see Norton IPS and Norton Toolbar.
To be sure, do you have any other security software installed besides NAV? Did you have any other security software installed on your computer when you first installed NAV? If you removed other security software before installing NAV, how did you do so? It is necessary to not only uninstall old security software but also run a removal tool before installing a replacement security software. Doing this prevents possible conflicts between the two programs.
Regarding Comodo, I think you are probably OK as long as you ensure that you install ONLY the firewall and nothing else.
I have not used Comodo before myself and so I have a little concern since I have seen threads indicating that there are problems sometimes when you try to install only the firewall option.
I have asked a colleague to weigh in on this as I believe she uses Comodo on one of her computers.

In Mozila = tolls, addons = only Norton IPS, do you think it would the same if i install Norton safe web lite? whats the difference from the 2 versions?
Actually i installed NAV after i removed Avast from my system.
Yes im using Firewall only but it has Defense + (HIPS) and Sandbox, so its not an basic/simple firewall thats why im a little concerned about possible conflicts.
Thanks for your time and detailed answer! :)

Looking at the product comparison charts, it looks like NAV does not have Identity Safe or the Safe Web utilitiy, so Safe Web Lite would be the way to go. Last Pass is a good free password manager if you would like to have one. I don't think you will have any problem with Comodo. Defense plus is the sandbox. They should work quite well together.

Thanks guys, do you think WOT and Norton DNS would be good options to add to my security?
Mbam pro, (realtime) Comodo firewall, and Nav 2011 :)
Thanks one more time! :)

My apologies, I have NIS on the brain right now with other threads. It is correct that NAV does not safe web. Argh, sorry about that.
But yes safe web lite should be a good choice for you.
