Editors' Review

+

Comodo Internet Security is a free antivirus and PC security solution that combines a number of effective security tools into one easy-to-use package. It's one of the latest challengers to enter the expanding field of free security bundles, with which it shares some important characteristics, such as cloud-based virus scanning and behavior analysis to counter zero-day threats, a sturdy firewall, sandboxing, and anti-spyware -- all controlled from a single access point that takes the guesswork and program-swapping out of the security equation. Each strives to satisfy advanced users and absolute beginners alike. Comodo Internet Security passes all those checkpoints and adds some unique extras, such as the privacy-enhancing Comodo Dragon browser and SecureDNS service that lets you surf safely and maybe faster, too. We've been using Comodo's free firewall app for some time, and it's proved every bit as effective as the better-known free firewalls. It's a major component of Comodo Internet Security.

The program's System Tray icon accesses the configuration files for Internet Security, Firewall Security, and Proactive Security, and four optional Security Level settings: Antivirus, Firewall, Defense, and Sandbox. We'll skip to the chase and state that Comodo Internet Security cleared the bar for all-around security. And, like the standalone firewall, Comodo Internet Security plays well with other security tools, including some large packages. In functionality and performance, it's much like its competitors, all of which share similarities. It scanned our system, updated itself automatically, and sandboxed new apps for checking and approval. Dragon is an excellent Chromium-based browser that integrates with Comodo's SecureDNS service (other browsers do too) to offer enhanced privacy. SecureDNS changed our network settings; we noticed no difference in browsing, though.

When free antivirus programs started offering the same protection and security (and even databases and engines) as premium antivirus software, the big players responded by bundling other security tools, including firewalls, threat isolation, and anti-adware tools designed to protect your PC from a wide range of critical and potential threats. Now Comodo has stepped up its game and upped the level of competition with Comodo Internet Security. It belongs on any short list of free PC security solutions.

"A very good choice for free!!!"

June 16, 2013  |  By Rozbuster

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security 6.1

Pros

It has very good detection rates! I have windows 7 64bit with 8Gb Ram allthough is very light And it has cloud as every new antivirus, the firewall is satisfactory good and you can understand if there is a virus in your PC because the firewall warns you of it, when it tries to connect, as will know that this is what virus do.

Cons

It has to start detecting malicious cookies, allthough the Dragon browser that is implemented in the installation process, keeps you safe.

Summary

A woth of your time experience with Forums Very Active and close to you so you have any problem at all!!!

"Get anything but this garbage!!!"

June 10, 2013  |  By anothergamer

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security 6.1

Pros

Fast scans,free

Cons

It detected Microsoft Net Framework 3.5 as malicius,then it detected DirectX 9 setup as malicious. It detected everything I tried to install the same way for Crying Out Loud!!!!!!!!

Summary

I just yesterday created a Windows 7 , XP dual boot system then I installed this MONSTER on both. Now I have to uninstall this Beast and delete all it's registry entries.I guess it's easy to have a high detection rate when you block everything!!! Don't believe me? You go right ahead.

"Comodo Internet Security is excellent"

June 09, 2013  |  By salesalex

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security 6.1

Pros

This is antivirus , firewall , virtual browser (which opens on demand and does not effect operating system no matter which sites you browse) , also has sandbox and real-time registry protection , all in one for free = COMODO ICS PREMIUM .
Despite all the levels of protection this is very light AV and does not affect system too much , and works on any computer.
I have installed it on 'ancient' 10 years old IBM laptop(1GHz 500MB) five months ago and it works well and boots very fast .

Cons

Firewall can make problems with some wifi adapters on Win7 , and if you see any just reinstall Comodo without firewall .

Summary

cool antivirus package with a lot of extras .

"Don't use it!"

June 06, 2013  |  By LMFROCH

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security 6.1

Pros

Unless you have very few programs this might work OK for you.

Cons

This messed up many of my programs and caused others to uninstall. Had to remove it from my system. I had just went through the process of cleaning out my system step by step and thought this work be a good add. Now I'm back to square one and have to repair everything.

"Great but No Incremental Update After System Restore"

June 02, 2013  |  By mindsci

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security 6.1

Pros

The new Comodo Internet Security Free has been performing quite well.
I like being able to tweak many parameters of its protection. In particular, I like being able to easily set the firewall to prevent many programs from getting on the internet on their own.

Also, I'm able to have Avast Free Antivirus installed and running in tandem with CIS Free.

Cons

If you do a System Restore CIS Free has to download its entire Definition Set (120-150MB) all over again. CIS Free should be fixed so that it only has to do an Incremental Update after a System Restore to a date only a few days to a couple of weeks old.

Summary

To install CIS Free and Avast Free on the same computer, install the Comodo First. When you next install the Avast Free you can install it as "supplemental" mode protection. The Avast seems to have a higher Malware Detection rate during file transfers, but the CIS Free is superior in many other aspects.

"Misled by Negative comments: GREAT PROGRAM!!"

May 31, 2013  |  By jimandsherri

 |  Version: Comodo Internet Security 6.1

Pros

It works really well on my windows 8 64 bit laptop.
ITS FREE!!

Cons

Geek buddy is a little annoying, but all in all--They are giving you a quality program.

Summary

I held off using this program because of the negative reviews. After I purchased AVAST! for my other computers (3 pc license), I decided to give comodo a try, since there firewall is so good. Have not been disappointed one bit. Finally someone understands that many of us out here cannot afford to pay a yearly chunk of change for a security program like Norton, Mcaffee....etc. And many of these (like Mcaffee) SLOW down performance. Comodo has not and I am Very pleased
