    In the release notes for 4.27 "Fixes and enhancements to BOClean installer:", it states that: "Permissions for databases, reports and configuration automatically established."

    However, running under a limited user account in WinXP SP3, I still have to grant modify permission to the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BOC427 folder in order to update the signatures. This is not a big deal, but is this a bug in view of the above note?

    Does anyone know if BOClean is compatible with SpywareBlaster?

    Would hate to find out the hard way.

    I am grateful for the info and as I also use XP I will go ahead and give it a try.

    With malware being so sophisticated it seems only logical to use a layered armor approach.

    I just wonder how many layers can be installed before performance degradations outweigh the benefits (so far I have not reached this level).

    This one is a very light application, recommended and never conflicted with other stuff for me. Highly recommended from me. However you are right, people advocating extreme paranoia such as use of multiple real-time AVs etc. is something I really don't like, creates more problems than it solves.

    numerous posts concerning New tray icons for Comodo by RejZoR, have been moved to a thread of their own for further discussion given requests for numerous programs had dominated this threads original intent.

    continued here---> I've updated my enhanced trey icons for BOClean

    Boclean used more resources on my XP SP3 machine than my firewall & anti-virus combined!

    Q to ask here but what is Comodo Bo Clean. Is it an AntiMalware, Antispyware software or what and would you reccomend downloading and using it. You see the thing is really how much of this security stuff/protection do you really need on your PC and the thing is it will never end. For eg you can have a top notch AV such as NOD32, Kaspersky or Avira, than a good FW, followed by a few good antipsyware, antispam etc etc. Than theres Spyware Blaster and so on. I believe to always have good protection on your PC but keep it to a minimum than to clutter your PC with it.

    See the description and the list of covered threats here

    And yeah, I'd definitely recommend it unless you are already using a different product doing the same job.

    Ok just to be sure, BOClean uses one process with 500kb and another one with 15-20mb. That's around average, isn't it?
    Just to be sure.

    Hi

    Well on my computer AntiVir free uses 5-10mb and ThreatFire uses ~10mb.
    I've heard that SAS Pro is only around 500kb.

    Most of the time, yes.
     
  15. My BOClean uses 51MB Virtual Memory, 'VM Size' in Task Manager and about 18MB for Memory Usage.

    Currently I don't believe that there is another product that scans for "Memory Malware"

    BOclean is different compared to antivirus\antispyware

    Is this Freeware?
    I can't find the purchase fee for this product on Comodo's website.

    It's Free for personal and commercial use :) The only thing comodo charges is for SSL, EV SSL, etc certificates.

    Its freeware for a good reason. Where it once was capable of destroying malware that the av would have missed now it just sits in your tray looking cool and relaxt when poop happens.

    You really have no idea how BOClean works, It scans the Memory, Your Av works on the disk level. Some forms of malware never even touch your "Local Disk" They run inside your memory without going onto your pc.

    Same here. I hope they will improve it and make it lighter on resources.

    "It scans the Memory, Your Av works on the disk level. Some forms of malware never even touch your "Local Disk" They run inside your memory without going onto your pc."

    It will find things that no normal av can find, It's not meant to replace your anti virus at all.

    Ges/Por, Cmon man, I thought by now people would know that no one program can catch 100%.
