Comodo Internet Security Premium
Comodo Internet Security 8.0 is the free, multi-layered, security application that offers complete protection from viruses, Trojans, worms, buffer overflows, zero-day attacks, spyware and hackers. Built from the ground upwards with your security in mind, Comodo Internet Security combines powerful Antivirus protection, an enterprise class packet filtering firewall, advanced host intrusion prevention, application control and anti-spyware in one supremely powerful application. The latest version sees a major leap forward in security and usability with the addition of cloud based virus-scanning and behavior analysis of unrecognized files - making CIS 7.0 unbeatable at detecting zero-day attacks. Under default settings, unknown and untrusted files are automatically scanned by our cloud-based virus scanners then, while the file undergoes behavior analysis on our cloud server, it is run in a sandbox on your local machine so that it cannot modify or affect data on your 'real' system. Put simply, this ground-breaking method of protecting your PC means that only trusted applications are allowed to run on your computer. Malware and untrusted files get nowhere near anything important AND you get to use your computer without interruption from nagging alerts. CIS 7.0 also features a friendly graphical user interface; granular configuration options; easily understood and informative alerts; wizard-based detection of trusted zones and much more. Comodo Internet Security delivers enterprise class protection and can be used out of the box - so even the most inexperienced users will not have to deal with complex configuration issues after installation. Comodo Internet Security is available in many different languages and is free for life.

It can't really be fully uninstalled unless you are a professional.ConsBasically almost impossible to uninstall. Tried to uninstall that and geek buddy many ways, and couldn't. It screwed up my laptop.SummaryAvoid this program because it takes over your browsers even if you uninstalled i. It will still be running on your pc if you uninstall it using various advanced programs.Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful?

The program constantly blocks installations of other programs as well as processes spawned from those programs or program installations. Long story short. You may have to disable the program to install other programs. I'm pretty sure this defeats the purpose of the program. But its free so what do you expect.SummaryDestroys installations of other programs.

Firewall is the best.ConsDon't use this antivirus or custom settings, pro active protection etc. Start with training mode and then move to safe mode.SummaryThe best firewall, HIPS and proactive protection if you don't use out of the box settings. Use custom installation and Untick the option for Priv Dog, Geek buddy etc or your computer will be taken ower and start up will be very slow and it could cause Blue screen of death or your computer to freeze.Reply to this review Was this review helpful? (1) (0) 2 stars"In spite of glowing reviews this product worries me"June 07, 2014 | By johnj2010 | Version: Comodo Internet Security 7.0 ProsInstallation easy, and unwanted add-ons seem to have removed easily too. Quick scan was fast, compared to other products I have tried. It found one threat on first pass, which Malwarebytes and Hitman were unable to see, but was it real? Full scan delivered 8 more new threats, none of which showed under Windows essentials or Malwarebytes. So it looks very thorough, and cleaned without hitches.ConsAfter install Chrome was noticeably slower and CPU usage significantly higher with just Chrome and Comodo idling (compared to Windows Security Essentials.
Anything found opens a "GeekBuddy" screen offering to connect to an expert who will assist in removing the malware.
No on-screen advice on whether 'Clean' is sufficient.
The software inserts small ads occasionally, and Comodo offer paid-for products, but that seems a very optimistic business model.
The GeekBuddy chat/phone immediately asks for remote access to the PC, and can't advise unless this is done. Others have remarked that unknown amounts of programs are then installed.
Cleaning removes the files. There is no warning that cleaning a suspect email attachment results in the deletion of the entire email folder.
Information on the location and nature of suspect files is scant, cannot be copied and pasted, and there is no indication of severity.SummaryTwo of my supposed malware items were files in recently installed ware from trusted suppliers (HP and Keil), the rest being email attachments, so I suspect false alerts. The response seems to be aimed at getting the user to phone GeekBuddy and allow remote access, no matter what the nature of the alert, so perhaps they are not too worried about false alerts. I did not proceed with that, so am not aware whether GeekBuddy in some way asks for payment for the service, or whether the cost is in having additional products installed on the computer, some of which may not be free.
Several PC magazines and sites have approved this product as highly effective, so maybe I'm just paranoid - or maybe the company name has unfortunate connotations. (The C(K)omodo dragon feeds by biting its prey from concealment, thus infecting it with venom and pathogens from its saliva, then waits for it to die before consuming the corpse.) Its behaviour reminds me too much of ScareWare tactics often used to persuade users to connect to or download suspect services.

Called, & tech wanted permission to remote access the PC, which I very hesitantly gave him only because of the Comodo name. I specifically told him I wanted to see everything he was doing. Instead he went through whatever he did so fast I couldn't even tell what he did. Then spent nearly an hour while he harangued me to buy Geekbuddy junk. Finally got him off the phone, only to see (later) my entire PC tied up by Comodo without my having accessed or run it as yet. It completely disabled everything; almost never got the thing to shut down. Did the Geekbuddy 'tech' come back & meddle on my machine so I'd think I had issues that I HAD TO HAVE their service to fix? Can't think of anything else, since Comodo was not in use, but task manager showed the PC was being accessed through the Comodo stuff on the PC. Uninstalled, and would advise Comodo to drop the friendship with their new 'buddies' ASAP.SummaryHad the feeling on the phone that this was a scam and the guy talking a scammer, but trusted the Comodo name. Uninstalled everything and will not make the mistake of trusting Comodo again. If they don't think enough of their own reputation to vet their partners any better than this, then there's no reason why I should waste my time on their stuff, which, as far as I'm concerned, is nothing but JUNK. DON'T USE THIS GARBAGE.

This PC is new, and the Comodo install was about the only thing on it at the point this happened, so I'm very sure this was not virus or malware related. I already had Avast and Malwarebytes, but thought I would try out Comodo to see if I liked it better on the new system. I'll stick with both my old standbys and Comodo can kiss my aasci goodbye. NEVER AGAIN! And I won't be granting remote access to ANY company EVER AGAIN, no matter how much I think the name can be trusted.

Addition: I have screenshots of the task manager tie-up. I forgot to add this in the original review. I've thought about contacting Comodo, but they only have an email contact, with no customer service link I could find--not a good thing in my own experience online. They don't even provide a direct link by which you can make a complaint or rave comment or contact them unless you have an email program set up--which many users don't have a clue how to do.
In my own experience, companies that do this are pretty much fly-by-night . The present stats on this company don't tell us if the company was sold recently to people less scrupulous--which would be my own take on things.
This is very amateurish for a company that has been in business as long as Comodo. One other thing my review did not mention because I was so thoroughly disgusted at the time, is that I had used Comodo Dragon browser for quite a few years. Needless to say, it is off my system now, along with all Comodo stuff.Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful?

Most people don't read eula and just click next next next and then cry like babies that they have ended up with ton of rubbish. Once the software is installed use advanced settings to untick ads, notifications, and pop up frequency other annoying things.ConsFor lazy people is too powerful, they just click yes to everything and then their system is overloaded with pop ups.SummaryThe best in the world if you are willing to customize it and find out how to configure it. It all takes just a few minutes.Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful?
