The Comodo

I am currently using KIS 2011 ver.556(b.c.d) and find it really effective as long as one sets it up in a decent config. The safe run feature I think is fantastic and in all probability is the same sort of feature as the Sandbox app - which I've got - the paid version but it clashes with KIS as does the paid version of MBAM. Even so one has to disable scan my files settings for the same thing in the free version of MBAM when using KIS.

Now I am doing a build soon and reading yesterday re Comodo that I thought I might give a try on it as I can wipe the HDD and restart with something else - like my KIS or the Pure I have.

Two things bother me though it states it misses nothing and I find that a little hard to take in - is it really that good?? and I saw mentioned the D+ is virtually impossible to get uninstalled once in the machine - trye??


As a minor by the by where can you buy it from - as in Oz I can find nowhere to get it.
Plus the fact I will not buy stuff over the net using cards etc which it seems to be the only venue.

You can get Comodo D+ for free from their site. As far as being able to uninstall it if you decide, all i can say is ive done it and there may be something left here or there but i cant tell as far as performance is concerned.

I vote for Kaspersky. It's got Safe Run - it's called Sand Box before, Kaspersky kinda started this sand box stuff trend if I'm not mistaken - silent mode is perfect for gaming and presentation, identity protection is perfect for e-banking e-payment and has wide compatibility with credit cards and banks and websites, you can disable automatic Idle Scan/ Rootkit Scan and run it on manual, nice interface, built-in rescue disk, virtual keyboard, even parental control - if u need it - And you can exit Kaspersky whenever in 2 clicks. One app that does it all. Imo it's really unnecessary to use 3-4 apps on our system just to feel immune, to have safe computer use and internet-ing habit is more effective in the first place.

And dealing with very badly infected system? I tried all kinds of MS-DOS, scripts, boot scan, remover etc. But only GetSystemInfo and Kaspersky AVPTool is able to save my friends computers many times.

Judge for yourself how good Comodo is..



I've never heard the rumor about Defense being difficult to uninstall, but I have done dozens of clean Comodo installs where Defense+ had been completely uninstalled.

Couldn't agree with you more Gilgamesh I reckon ithe safe run is the ducks guts and boy does that Kaspersky TDDS killer work well - a little ripper for rootkits.

what test is this? crap i just installed Norton Internet Security 2012 and according to your test it suckks...
This is my current setup..
Norton Internet Security 2012 as my real time protection
Malwarebytes as on-demand
SuperAntispyware as on-demand

Is that sufficient?

According to these tests norton is actually pretty good:AV-TEST.org Tests of Anti-Virus- and Security-Software

and according to this site its the best antivirus of 2011:AntiVirus Reviews & Downloads - Norton 2011, Kaspersky, NOD32

So, im confused now.
