What comodo product do you have installed? If its the firewall, you can manage without it if your pc I'd too laggy as the windows firewall is powerful enough.

Just using MSE will give you the best performance. However, on demand scanners such as mbam wont impact performance as they're not running in the background.

Remember what I said about performance vs security? You can beef up your computer a great deal, but it will be a lot slower (sometimes). That is why I use MSE only, because it is light-weight and there is no lag. It is a decision everyone has to make

At this moment i'm extremely content by MBAM and MSE so i'm gonna go on with this duo. And maybe later ill add one anti-spyware (on demand). Since MSE has real time protection and MBAM does not, i think another antispyware on demand wont harm at all. Right now my pc performance is back to normal, and i'm felling more secure after all i learned on this forum.

That sounds like a great combo to me. That, along with some common sense will keep your pc safe.

Happily now i can say i understand what a malware, virus and spyware are. Also what real time protection and on demand means. Beside that i have learned something totally new. I'm talking about Sandboxie and common sense So thank you everyone who helped me and took their time and patience with me.

The paid version of MBAM does include real time protection and can be had for less than 20 dollars for a lifetime license.

The paid version will also update automatically and run scans on a schedule. It does not conflict with MSE at all.

Glad we could help. It feels good when we can help people. Enjoy your properly protected computer and keep your backups fresh. You never know when you might need them.
