Editors' Review

+

Comodo Internet Security is Comodo's free antivirus suite. It packs an antivirus scanner and firewall, which are standard for AV suites, but also unique tools like an integrated sandbox environment and a desktop widget.

Pros

Virtualized sandbox: Not many antivirus scanners come with a sandbox environment for running unknown programs and Web sites, but Comodo Internet Security goes the extra mile by providing a virtualized environment that looks like Chrome OS. From the virtualized box, you can browse the Web using Comodo's own Dragon browser and not worry about programs making permanent changes to your system. Certain features like Adobe Flash are disabled by default, even when running browsers like Chrome.

Scanning and processing: Comodo Internet Security displays flagged items as a hierarchical tree, whereas other antivirus apps show results in a line-by-line list. This organization makes it easier to act on known apps that are flagged as potentially unwanted programs. For each detected threat, you can clean, ignore the warning, or label false alerts for stub installers and known programs that fall in the potentially unwanted category.

Malware detection: AV-Test rated Comodo Internet Security at 5.5/6.0. The scores put Comodo Internet Security in the upper 90th percentiles compared to the industry average for malware detection in a four-week test period.

Cons

Aggressive notification: Upon first use, Comodo Internet Security bugs you about...pretty much everything. We were pegged with countless pop-up prompts from minimizing windows and detected networks, to pushing GeekBuddy (Comodo's tech-help hotline) services post-scan. It was so overwhelming that we felt more stressed than educated.

Potentially unwanted flags: Comodo Internet Security is eager to categorize apps and installers as potentially unwanted programs. A couple of our own files were considered unknown and flagged as risks. Comodo Internet Security leans toward "better safe than sorry," but some alerts felt highly unwarranted.

Bottom Line

Comodo Internet Security offers solid protection and some pretty useful features, thanks to its integrated virtualization approach to running apps and browsing the Web. Though the pop-up explanations and slightly aggressive flags are annoying, we still recommend Comodo Internet Security as a terrific free antivirus program.

"Comodo Workers behind the scene are stealing files"

January 16, 2016  |  By Watchdognet

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security Premium 8.2.0.4703

Pros

The Worst experience ever! I paid 69.00 for a geek buddy at Comodo to clean my registry, what should have taken 1/2 hours turned out to be 2 1/2 hours. They did not fix the problem, it jammed my Explorer browser and I woke up at 1am to see my computer opening images from my personal files and photos files. I clicked on my mouse and who ever was on my computer closed the files they were viewing. Hackers workers having remote access to my computer pretending to fix your registry but transfering all my files unto their USB BEWARE STAY AWAY FROM REMOTE WORKERS. I called to complained and They are still doing an investigation on this.

Cons

"This is AWESOME!"

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security Premium 8.2.0.4703

Pros

Light as hell, computer boots up very fast, no lag on opening programs, security from every corner, Anti-virus, sanbox, HIPS, Top rated firewall, Virutal Zone, this is all for free

Cons

Aggressive Popups if HIPS is turned on, might frustrate some users, would be good if the Anti-Virus had a web shield where it scans webpages and downloads before threats reach your computer.

Summary

The Cons are not enough to outweigh the pros, i switched from avast and panda to this, i feel naked without using a third party firewall, and this has an anti- virus too which i rate highly, will keep using this on my windows 10 laptop

"COMODO security software may be Spyware and Malware!"

October 20, 2015  |  By kshbz001

2015-10-20 14:28:55  |  By kshbz001

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security Premium 8.2.0.4703

Pros

I have had COMODO Internet Security, COMODO Firewall, and COMODO System Cleaner software for at least the last two years and I have not had any internet or computer system security issues for this entire time.

Cons

Yesterday, 10/19/2015, my COMODO Internet Security software uninstalled itself; the program was no longer in my Program Files and its GUI vanished. I tried to download and install the new version from www.cnet.com and from the COMODO link on PC World's website, but the prompt informed me of a "Fatal Error" and urged me to uninstall my old version of COMODO Internet Security.
I could not uninstall it because it already uninstalled itself. I was able to uninstall COMODO Firewall and COMODO System Cleaner. Yet again I tried to download and install the new version of COMODO Internet Security; however, I received the same error as above. I finally found COMODO's files in my Program Files and manually deleted them, but one file named "cavshell.dll" refused to be deleted.

During my installation attempts I refused the following: (1) to make Yahoo! my Home Page, (2) to make Chromodo my default Web Browser, (3) to download and install Chromodo Web Browser and "Geek Buddy" support services.

Summary

I finally downloaded and installed AVG's security software and it found the following malicious software installed by COMODO: One Trojan Horse, one Virus, and eighteen Adware in COMODO's remaining "stealth" files (I thought that I deleted all of COMODO's files) on my computer! There were three Adware AdInstaller.Somoto files, thirteen Adware Generic5.BSLB files, and two Downloader.LOV files for a total of 20 high threat and medium threat harmful files!
