Editors' Review

+

Comodo has merged its antivirus program with Firewall Pro, creating a free security program that aims to be more to more people. Although this may frustrate some users who want only one program or the other, the installer does let you opt out of either of the components. Users are also asked to install the Comodo SafeSearch and Ask.com toolbars, so be careful if you tend to install on autopilot. CIS requires a reboot.

Resource management is better than before, with hogging all but eliminated. It provides a smorgasbord of information and options for advanced users, but it's simple enough for beginners, and runs smoothly and silently in the background. The version 3 interface utilizes a plain white color scheme and replaces old terminology with more intuitive terms such as Summary, Firewall, Defense, and Miscellaneous. In each, there are links to relevant security issues so users can drill down to learn more about how the firewall is performing. The firewall rears its head most often when Security Alerts ask about new Internet connections as the program "learns" your computer's behavior.

Shield-shaped buttons at the top facilitate switching between the antivirus and firewall modules, as well as a summary tab that provides a general overview. Users can toggle automatic scans of archives or downloads, scans on start-up, manage the quarantine, and schedule scans and definition file updates through a clean and comprehensible list of links. The definition file update crashed during its first use, but was stable thereafter. Scans completed at a reasonable speed, but were not blazingly fast.

A third pane, Defense+, provides more-advanced security options including locking down specific files from modification, perusing an active processes list, and protecting specific Registry keys. Comodo Internet Security's wide range of free services are generally good, but the firewall is clearly the strongest of the bunch.

"Comodo Internet security 5 is the best yet."

September 22, 2010  |  By whit384

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security 4.1

Pros

Anti virus, Firewall, Defense plus, Sandbox

Cons

There are no bad things about the program

Summary

I have used Comodo internet security since the 3 version and it has improved with each release. the current version is version 5 or 2011 Comodo protects system files and stops installations that are not in comodo's white-list and asks you what to do with difference plus most programs are in the white-List. If you want to run programs that are suspicious in sandbox were they will not bother the computer, files in the sandbox witch keeps it isolated so it can't harem the computer can be submitted to Comodo for analyst if it is safe it will be removed from sandbox, if it s malware it is removed. Comodo Internet security 5 has cloud scanning for all it's fetchers including the firewall. Comodo internet Security 5 has two version 32 bit and 54 bit both will work on Windows XP, Vista, and 7. You can download both version from this link http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/free-internet-security.php

"DOES NOT WORK ON WINDOWS 7 64-BIT"

September 19, 2010  |  By cooidude0

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security 4.1

Pros

Reviews from other sites that tested it say it works great.

Cons

File size is a little big at 56megs. Nowhere does it say it doesn't work for 64-bit windows 7. I get the error message "Does not support this platform".

Summary

If you have an older version of Windows, try Ashampoo Firewall, it's smaller and does about the same thing.

"good for a free product"

September 17, 2010  |  By gunnerb47

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security 4.1

Pros

Free to use without excessive upgrade pop ups. First scan found issues that one of the competitors missed. Covers most of what is needed.
I will evaluate this again after I run it for awhile.

Cons

scan Is slow I am not sure if the paid version would be any faster. I did not find any information on that to date.

Summary

So far it seems to work and do the job required.
