    "Abysmal is what describes it best"

    January 31, 2013  |   By dbmalya


    Strong firewall. That's the only place where comodo tops. Everything else, simply sucks.


    *HIGHLY UNSTABLE. My 64bit Windows 8 was stable as a rock. Since i installed CIS, it will randomly lock up for no apparent reason.
    The only way to revive the computer, would be to press and hold the power button and force a shut down.
    *HEATS UP the computer like no other antivirus does. My fans keep rolling all the time. Uninstall Comodo, and the fans fire up and stop and fire up again and stop again. But when comodo is installed, they never stop, the fans keep rolling till i shut windows down.
    *CANNOT ENABLE/DISABLE components by right-clicking the tray icon in windows 8. A popup about "how long do you want this turned off for", flashes and goes away. Restart the computer, it works again, but then again every once in a while, i get this bug, the screen about how long to disable, just flashes for half a second and disappears
    *TERRIBLE UI. As if i'm blind and need super-huge buttons and icons. The main screen wastes screen estate. A big blank box for the sandbox? Terrible design.


    This is too bad and too highly unstable while running in windows 8.
    The comodo firewall rocks though.
    Install the comodo firewall ONLY. Disable the stupid "Defense+" thing, it's paranoid, like Vista's UAC was. And don't even think of installing that geek buddy. The geeks are absolute retards. If you are a regular reader of technology websites like CNET, you probably know much more about computers than these so called retard geeks do.
    Install the comodo firewall only (not the antivirus, not geek buddy, not defense+) and get another anti-malware for malware protection.Avira or Avast would be good.
