Editors' Review

+

Like previous releases, COMODO's free antivirus solution for Windows offers solid full-time antivirus protection and basic features comparable to similar freeware, including a desktop widget, firewall protection, Game Mode, drag-and-drop submission of suspicious apps for analysis, and cloud-based definitions, but it also comes with some unique extras, such as the COMODO Dragon secure Web browser, which is free, and the optional Geek Buddy support service, which requires a paid license.

Installing COMODO Antivirus involves several options, such as enabling cloud-based analysis of suspicious programs, which we accepted, and COMODO's free Secure DNS Server option, which we declined because it changes your PC's network settings, though we tried it before and found it reasonably fast. The Geek Buddy and related Anti-Error services provide live technical help, apparently, though they require activation. COMODO Antivirus' main interface is like other free antivirus tools in general layout and look, and you'll probably have little trouble setting things up, though a splash screen describes how to get started, and the Online Help options include an extensive manual and searchable forums. COMODO Antivirus automatically updated the latest definitions and started a full system scan, which found a couple of issues (nothing serious, thankfully) and removed them with a reboot for good measure (we could also opt for Geek Buddy help to make sure our PC was clean). COMODO Antivirus seemed to take a bit longer to update than similar tools and often involved a reboot; we didn't mind since we like thorough updates. Dragon generally lives up to its billing as "a faster, more secure version of Chrome."

We found that COMODO Antivirus also plays well with similar tools, including Microsoft Security Essentials, though we suggest taking care when mixing antivirus solutions. We're confident that COMODO Antivirus 6.2 is up to the task of protecting your PC, though.

"Terrible Product"

April 28, 2015  |  By J_Hanson2

 |  Version: Comodo Antivirus 8.2

Pros

It can install

Cons

It won't update. Comodo products all have problems updating (Comodo Time Machine is still waiting for an update)

Summary

I'd rather go with a product that can update like RollBack Rx or Drive Vaccine even. This crap is terrible

"I would not recommend this crap"

March 31, 2015  |  By gtitus09

 |  Version: Comodo Antivirus 8.1

Pros

It installed.

Cons

Used up too much of my CPU's resources + signature files were taking too long to install.

Summary

All I wanted was a lighter antivirus program instead of Avast which after using for like 3 years I had had enough of it using SO much of my computer's resources. Avira nor would AdAware install because I do not have SP3 on my computer. So I found Comodo and decided to try as I had used their browser IceDragon with good performance.
The program installed which was a plus, But then you had to update the signature virus database. That was taking WAY TOO LONG. Seventeen minutes had gone by and it was still at 47%! That pretty much told me that this program was large, so I unstalled it, and the other pieces of software it installed which is the Chromodo browser and Geek Buddy. I do not recommend this program for anyone who wants to try and save some RAM etc.

"Wish I could rate it higher."

March 16, 2015  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: Comodo Antivirus 8.1

Pros

PRETTY GOOD ...

Cons

1. Does not seem to be as accurate as AVG. Tried them both out in sand box and CAV did not recognize a Trojan, :(
2.All the pop-up from the geek buddy EVEN AFTER uninstalling I still got many pop-ups.
3. Although advertised as anti-virus, they cram in a bunch of other programs...LIKE the BROWSER as Falsely advertized as FREE, when it includes the Geekbuddy, a paid service.

Summary

OK to download ... but make sure to uninstall all the garbage like GeekBuddy AND browser.

"Wouldn't update/run"

March 08, 2015  |  By tomplichta

 |  Version: Comodo Antivirus 8.0

Pros

Couldn't test

Cons

Loaded fine but when the startup page went to update the definition files, the update would not run and the program would freeze from that point. Tried reinstalling with no success. Removed it completely and downloaded a different program which works just fine.

"Love it, have used it for 2 years"

August 12, 2014  |  By OneLuckyDucky

 |  Version: Comodo Antivirus 7.0

Pros

I don't know it's runing most of the time. It doesn't slow up my machine and updates itself when I open my computer. I set it up to run once a day and it does that without slowing down my computer either.
When I have used other antivirus programs they have taken over my computer and slowed down my machine. This one doesn't. I still use Supe- antivirus software, but always have, and Malwarebytes.

Cons

Nothing I have run into so far and like I said, I have been using it for 2 years. I have tried AVG, Microsoft program, Avast, Avira, etc., and like this one the best.

Summary

Best software for antivirus I have ever tried....so far

"Works well as far as I can tell..."

July 27, 2014  |  By limited_quartic

 |  Version: Comodo Antivirus 7.0

Pros

Light on resources, fast enough. Has a lot of options, although not all intuitive. Tried a couple of test virus files, blocked them with no issue. Also removed/quarantined some infected files on my PC with no issue. Nice interface and easy to use. Has a sandbox to test files and programs. Includes cloud-based scanning, and uses Comodo servers for DNS if so chosen in options. Really nice.

Cons

Don't have a lot of negatives. Have to be careful on the install to keep out nagware and paid upgrades, but other than that.. no issues so far. The desktop widget thingy can be turned off, which I did. Menus not completely intuitive, and a bit of a pain getting to the scheduled scans, but not that hard to find it and use.

Summary

I don't understand the negative reviews. For a free anti-virus scan and removal system, I think it is the best out there. A lot less ads/nagware than AVG, Avira free versions, etc. I found no install issues on this Windows 7 64-bit system, no slowdown issues like the negative reviewers list. None whatsoever. The professional viewers were right. This AV is spectacular!

"I like this more than Comodo internet security premium"

June 05, 2014  |  By salesalex

 |  Version: Comodo Antivirus 7.0

Pros

I didn't want comodo firewall and tried just antivirus and it's doing fine and doesn't slow the system , no viruses so far .

Cons

at start I couldn't open 'virtual kiosk' but few days ago it started working- not sure but I think that it started after I defragmented hard disk .

Summary

just uncheck everything that you dont want at the begining of the installation so you don't get unwanted stuff.
