    "Comodo is rather a virus than antivirus !!!!"

    January 22, 2013  |   By newfedra

    Pros

    Eye candy (but this won't protect you against viruses)

    Cons

    * VERY unstable
    * The uninstaller will not uninstall the adware but only Comodo Antivirus.
    * No support - There is no support to help you manually remove the leftovers from your computer. There is a support via chat but they will help you ONLY if you buy a license there, on spot! So you have to pay money only to be able to remove the program from your computer!!!
    * Lots and lots of positive alarms
    * Adware - Comodo pretends their antivirus is freeware but it isn't. Its bloated adware. Lots of pop-us and reminders that you should be ashamed that you are using the free version and that you need to upgrade soon! But this is nothing! They will replace your DNS providers with theirs and you will see their ads when you do searched in Firefox URL box. You will see this a page with comodo ads.
    * It installs a new browser (Dragon) and replace firefox with it.
    * It installs spyware software (GeekBudy) and ads in your computer. GeekBudy will stay connected to internet all the time!

    Summary

    STAY AWAY FROM COMODO ANTIVIRUS!
    Horrible product. Full of adware.

    I will personally go back to KIS.

    The DNS servers are optional, as are the browser and geekbuddy, and have been since they introduced them.
    All learning based applications have positive alerts when you first set them up, it's how they know you actually want the application running on your pc. I'd rather see "Hey this is trying to modify your registry do you want to trust this application? If so for how long?" then for it to let it do whatever or for it to outright stop it without it notifying me of what it did.
    I've been running comodo for 5 years and have never once seen an advertisement telling me to subscribe, purchase a license or otherwise.
    Call Microsoft and see what they tell you when you ask them for support... Oh $245 USD per incident sure no problem!

    It doesn't replace any browser but installs their own version of google chrome using their DNS servers for enhanced security.
    This suite is a very good one which makes me think you are a paid naysayer.

    I am using Comodo I.S. two months ( downloaded from official site ) and did not have any of that problems , so I can freely say that you are one BIG BAD LIAR .
    You should know that comodo Dragon is google based and there is no possibility to replace firefox , although I have chosen custom install and unchecked Dragon ( and geek buddy ) because I do not like too much browsers and programs in computer .

    It seems that you work at the competitor :)
