Windows 7: Comodo Internet Security

Comodo Internet Security

I was looking at Comodo's Internet Security and was surprised to find out that it is free. It is the Antivirus, Firewall, and Wi-Fi security. Does it all really work? Has anyone out there used this?

Yep...using CIS on one of my Laptops and it runs quite well. Have also just used the firewall (without AV) on another Laptop as well. I found the Firewall to be "in your face" meaning that it requires input from you. I like this feature as it warns you when a program is trying to access the internet.

Windows 7 already comes with a firewall. You can get very reliable (and proven) Microsoft Security Essentials for free as well.

Wi-Fi security? No such thing unless you are using WPA or WPA2.

Didn't you just re-install Kaspersky after having MSE and possibly something else?

If you decide to install the Comodo product, be sure to have a good backup as I have seen too many situations where people have problems removing it.

I don't really recommend Comodo anti-virus products as they score low on reviews such as av-comparitives. However, as a firewall, Comodo is the best free version I've found. I used to love Zone Alarm, but ever since Vista hit the streets Zone Alarm seemed to drop the ball in terms of compatibility.

My current setup: MSE & Comodo w/ Malwarebytes & SuperAntiSpyware in reserve.

A good anti virus program isn't too hard to come by, there's MSE, Avast, G-DATA, Kapersky, ESET and a bunch of others with similar detection ratings and reviews. This is why I won't touch the anti-virus side of Comodo.

I don't like security suites, period. And most security suites cause problems on some Win 7 systems.

I have a few systems and love to test software. I have 3 Laptops (2-Win7 & 1-WinXP) and 3 PC's (1-Win7 and 2-WinXP). On the WinXP Laptop I'm running CIS (AV and Firewall). On one of the Win7 Laptops I'm running Avast Free and on the other (my main Lappy) I'm running paid NOD32. For my Win7 PC (my main rig) and one of the WinXP PC's I'm running paid NOD3. For the other WinXP PC I'm running Avast free. I also have SUPERAntispyware and MalwareBytes installed as "on demand" scanners.

MSE doesn't cause issues on Windows 7. Not that I consider it a suite although technically MSE is anti-virus + anti-spyware and then you have the standard Windows firewall that works perfectly.
