    -comodoproblems.com- :D

    Looks like a website made by a professional but he describe his problems like if it were the first time in his live that touch a computer.
    Too pro to be a private user and who will spend money on hosting and domains while Internet is plenty of forums?
    I love the lacks of information about the problems or any evidence, and the same problem "blue screen" being reported all the times like if it were something different. Seems to be the perfect propaganda, so scared is avg if they are really behind?

    The best part of the web is this paragraph
    You know if the OpenSource community says so must be true, you know because avg is opensource and everybody knows that the opensource community uses Windows and not Linux this is why they love AVG :D BTW where is this community?

    Of course you have to buy avg

    This is to be sure that you have say something bad about all the products, the best of all is that nobody has reported BSOD of CIS 5.X in the forums (he says that he started to use CIS on May 2011)


    Domains registered by privacyprotect.org the purpose is that you can't know that avg is behind this :D http://privacyprotect.org/about-privacyprotection/

    http://whois.domaintools.com/avgforfree.com
    http://whois.domaintools.com/www-avg.com
    http://whois.domaintools.com/comodoproblems.com

    So some altruistic people is spending their money in making promotion to avg and tell lies about their competitors and they use the same company to hide who is behind?, like if Internet is not plenty of companies like this one

    We will never know the truth about this but at least you can have some laughs reading the website.

    PD: never buy nothing from a web registered in privacyprotect.org or you will never know who is behind

    i guess i don't understand how this is different than the thousand other affiliate sites like it. this isn't a new tactic, and even if it violated the individual's commission agreement (and it likely doesn't) the "fraudster", as you put it, would just register more domains and a new affiliate ID with a different vendor and continue doing the same thing, with another product.

    also, if it makes you feel any better, the host serving up two of the three domains you mentioned is also hosting like..50 typo-squatting sites. (goooogle.com, etc)

    For the business world it is the law of the jungle that reigns. Nevertheless, I cannot condone the behavior of that person who created that website by spreading lies. Even though I'm not a Comodo fanboy however, I can see that his actions are clearly unethical.

    Thanks.

    I'm not a regular Comodo user but can't recall any recent editions trashing anyone's system. This site does seem to exist solely to promote the virtuous white knight AVG by sensationally denouncing the evils of Comodo.

    ( I wonder... where might they have got that idea? :blink: )

    AVG is not involved in it except as being scammed, as are the users, by unscrupulous person(s) who set up the page.
