    I saw it just today( i mean the website- option of warranty I know already). What do u think about this? No offence. They do need/ deserve money for their software development efforts IMO.

    If you have a paid for anti virus on your PC wont they help you remove any nasties? Paying for that service twice doesn't strike me as value for money.

    Most AV companies charge you on a per incident case costing $30 or more per incident. This is a service to help remove malware,viruses, and spyware at a cost of $40 per YEAR. You do not need to sign up for it. It is mainly for newbies. Comodo Firewall is free and will remain free. I myself have never needed tech support to remove a virus cause honestly I have never been infected in over 5 years and when I did get a virus along time ago all I did was reformat.

    Personally, I did see this some time ago. My opinion is to look very carefully at the the terms/conditions.

    But,.. I would say such advert as no place here, and, I will remove if allowed.

    Hi,

    They will charge you if you do not know how to use their product properly--I mean they will help you to configure CFP and perhaps catch some malwares at the same time for a fee.

    There is a dangerous and hidden agenda buried here.

    Will they make CFP more and more complicated/complex to use or more vulnerable to malware attacks ? in order to siphon money out of users ?

    I do not like a situation where I have been given an under-cooked food and then PeptolBismal for a fee.

    I will watch Comodo's next move. BTW, they are recruiting resellers/fixers for their products services in conjunction with that AD--charging $39.00 per year.. Perhaps their move will eventually reduce unemployment rate in USA ?

    I would think that's a good deal considering how many house holds have kid's that do not know better or are not safe users on the net but here is a link that will give other's a better idea of what AVSmart is and does

    Given that security software is carefully reviewed by many third parties it seems very unlikely that an intentional vulnerability would go unnoticed. With regard to complexity, CFP is ALREADY too complex for me, but I'm not feeling motivated to pay for support :cool:

    Your really crossing the line by making insinuations like that Mr. Perman. I don't agree with everything in the a-vsmart warranty, But what you said is bs.

    Hi,

    Mr, you are entitled to have your views aired here, but, ..
    only few short lines of English did not make your point loud and clear,

    to me, your actions are nothing but smear tactic,

    Do you care making your views more readable ?

    Guide yourself accordingly. Your English word such as "bs" is not in my vocabulary, you mean bright shot ? thank you. I just shot first and aim later, apparently it works. :eek:

    Time out. Lets keep the discussion to the subject which is a comparison of the two CFP products, and not each other's posts.

    Thanks,

    Hi, Thanks,Peter.

    I am currently using CFP free version, many thanks to Wilders.

    By reading its posts regularly, I am certain that I have saved $ 39.00 per year right now.

    Posts here regarding CFP probably roll out MORE constructive guidance than Comodo support staff can possibly do. :rolleyes:

    Melih is taking action against this cause they are breaking copy right laws.

    Comodo has always had the tradition of making redundant, difficult-to-use software, and then touting them as innovative breakthroughs - if only because any failures of the software can be blamed squarely on the user. Good to see their **** is finally, albeit slowly, coming back to bite them in the arse.

    Meant to say that I don't agree with everything in the av-smart warranty terms & conditions. Perman, PM.

    I think that the simple fact that for the Plus version you have to pay, stops it for being an option.

    Unless you can post a forum link substantiating what you have said, this post is complete and utter FUD

    I read the complete Comodo forum post above, and what I read was:

    1. Melith stated he had a contract with them allowing the use of the Comodo engine
    2. Clearly the users there aren't happy about it.
    3. Melith said he would take another look at it.

    That neither suggests legal action nor copyright violation. All I see is that Comodo made a business decision and users aren't happy about it.

    Hi,

    Nice to know that Melih has noticed and has taken an action--investigating.

    I am curious to see what he has to say after such investigation.. Because a man as clever as he is, this kind of bo-bo usually would not go on without any blessing at all.

    Even the MVPS HOSTS file blackballs PCSecurityShield as scumware, so it is not like it is an industry secret. Bad move by all of these so called "security" companys; shows a lack of judgment. :thumbd: :thumbd:

    When a deal is struck in Sauna room is bad enough,

    Moreover when the details leak out or the deal shows true colour, then integrity and creditability are in limbo. Hidden agenda is what I worry the most. But what are this agenda ?

    The cynical would say that the next step for PCSS is to bundle the legitimate applications with adware/malware so that they can be both the problem and the solution. I don't know why MVPS blackballed them, but I don't think it is a good sign. Wasn't there also a report of Comodo selling SSL certification to the bad guys? Never heard how that turned out either.

    Hi,

    this is way above my head.
    Not that Melih sold freeware to PCSecurityShield, that's just a good deal...

    What I do not unterstand is:
    What do the guys at PCSecurityShield think?
    Who will order a lifetime license for $29.99 (currently $19.99)
    if he can get a lifetime license for free at Comodo o_O
    Very strange.

    Cheers
