Comodo folks Comodo is a good HIPS/FW with an AV. It causes a lot of discussion with bold claims for the future and easy manipulation of the past. See for instance the claim at release 2 http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=943637&postcount=1 CIS3 was not the first release of Comodo AV, it was their third release, comodo release 1 dated from end 2005 or early 2006 (see pic) Returnil as an example Returnil home free also has an AV. No Returnil user is claiming that Returnil home free is the best AV around and soon will head the rest of AV companies leaning on ancient defense apporaches. IMO a partition virtualisation HIPS with an AV add-on could make the same bold claims as a classical HIPS with a AV add-on could (unbeatable pro-active protection). My 2 cents I value Comodo for making available good freeware (Like CFW or CTM), I am amazed on some hasty releases and withdrawels of new softs (Cloudscanner and Disk Virtualisation) in regard to their enormeous claims. But I would not want to miss them, overall security is boring and they make it funny sometimes even hilarious. So I am wondering how boring would security be without Melih?
