    "A heavy-weight in security features."

    April 20, 2014  |   By eezee_cnet

    Version: Comodo Internet Security 7.0

    Pros

    With it's newest installment, Comodo delivered a swiss army knife. It sure got some tools for you, if you want to use them. A Virtual Machine, website scanning, sandboxing, a firewall, HIPS (guess a firewall should be considered a HIPS, but whatever) and... A widget.

    They freshed up the GUI. It's simple and somewhat effective.

    Great performance, overall. And that's very impressive, considering.

    Cons

    - Widget is just clutter.
    - PrivDog. Which blocks all other add services and replaces it with it's own adds. Yeah... No. Free apps and advertising is nothing new, so I can understand the decision to include this in the package. I can understand myself for not installing/using it.
    - The simpler GUI makes it even harder to adjust the components it has. Once you've figured out how to get to the core of settings, be prepared for some major settings galore. And it's still not userfriendly in easy blocking or whitelisting programs by hand.
    - Comodo wants to be too much. For me, I just want a personal firewall, as a small part of an extra defense line. I got everything else covered via other programs and methods. So, if one program got compromised or stopped working, for whatever reason, most of the other lines of defenses are still up and running. Spread the risk, so to speak.

    Summary

    It's got everything you want or need and then some. Question is, is that really what you want? My answer is: No.

    "Like Virtual Machine If OS Version Doesn't Support VM."

    April 12, 2014  |   By Grafik-Werk

    Version: Comodo Internet Security 7.0

    Pros

    Some Windows versions, like Windows 7 Home Premium, don't have a group policy editor (for tweaking security beyond firewall) or an ability to support virtual machine (VM) or an ability to use Comodo CIS-type sandbox; this version of Comodo CIS improves things for such OS, and when running ANY browsers in the virtual kiosk it's as if there were a VM/sandbox running...good news for smaller OS. If you don't like Comodo AV as resident antivirus, use one you like and either install just Comodo Firewall and Defense+ (and PrivDog against web ads if you like, it's now offered at install), or choose what Comodo products you want running after installing. New users would do well to read Comodo's user manual.

    Cons

    This version offers a few GUI themes under configuration setting menu for "Themes"; for some reason, only the "Classic" theme seems to give access to a few features enjoyed in prior version. The free version can't be repaired, so if on rare occasion it has incurable errors you have to clean uninstall/reinstall. I found on Windows 7 Home Premium increasing the OS pagefile to 1.5X installed RAM cured random BSOD due to Comodo drivers. That's it for cons.

    Summary

    No one protection actually protects against EVERY possible thing by itself, but Comodo CIS 7 sure does guard against a heck of a lot! I found that even if my router/modem had ports compromised to respond "closed" rather than "stealthed", Comodo CIS was still reporting PC devices as all ports stealthed...giving impression to hackers no device beyond router/modem existed. Again, this is a great suite for ANY, and especially smaller, Windows OS.

    "great program"

    April 11, 2014  |   By AnuDKiller

    Version: Comodo Internet Security 7.0

    Pros

    1. Excellent Detection
    2. Tight security
    3. Full Featured, and free
    4. Have everything like HIPS, Sandbox, Virtual Desktop, game mode, Network Intrusion detection, rating system scans.
    5. Have backgroup mode. Using it you can send any comodo task to background and it will take very minimum resource.
    6. No advertisement.
    7. Very useful for advanced users.

    Cons

    This is not actually a cons. It's kind of a suggestion. Comodo should add profiles and should make a profile for novices. So that when some alert comes they are not freaked out.

    Summary

    Excellent protection.

    "Great program!"

    April 4, 2014  |   By Jan_Kol

    Version: Comodo Internet Security 7.0

    Pros

    Total security

    Cons

    None for me but maybe for inexperienced users sometime a bit difficulty

    Summary

    I used Avast anti virus for many years. Plus the Comodo firewall. When I experienced that in some benchmarks the Comodo protection is slightly better than Avast I changed completely to Comodo Internet Security Free. Since about six months I use this protection now (= April 2014) and had n0 problems other than from time tot time allow Comodo to do something on my laptops (Win 7 Ultimate and Win 7 Prof).
