    :)

    Do you know why is this opt-in, by default, if we are talking about a security program and this isn't necessary?

    So we have a supposed security program that contains junk or something else.

    This new toolbar still have some connection with Ask.com, or is just related with Comodo?

    It is also related to IAC (Ask.com), for what I see here http://www.hopsurf.com/license.jsp, under Copyright

    Just click on the ticks and away it goes.

    Hardly difficult to opt out is it?

    I know how to avoid it, but a normal user care about this?

    Normally they doesn't perceive nothing of nothing, so...

    Well they could easily make it opt in, and stop all the complaints. Hardly difficult to opt in if one wants to is it?

    I've been running Comodo services quite a bit all along on a test machine. Which is actually the main reason why I have such a low opinion of them.

    Won't go crazy but this is a boat that should not have sailed and will sadly be the reason why I'll not be using any further versions of comodo until this pattern is rectified. Hope to be back as a user if it ever does.

    sorry. :thumbd:

    It is clear that Comodo is doing this precisely to catch the unsuspecting low-tech user, otherwise this opt-out policy would have been changed a long time ago.
    It just doesn't seem right that a security company with the slogan, "Creating Trust Online" should be doing this.

    Anyway, this is like beating a dead horse.
    Better to continue discussion on the pros and cons of this particular release.

    Well, I too don't like this way to present the toolbar, and I agree with you. But, boys ...You all surely use Google, or Yahoo, FaceBook, MySpace, Hotmail...and then blogs, social networks, IM services.. WebSites, Forums... all free ? all pure, all clean ? How many banners, pop up, coockies, AdSenses you see, read, receive, accept ? And how really you know of all this ? Must I go on ?

    I don't like all this, yeah, but Internet is also this, the Web lives also with this. I don't like, and I don't like in a security software, ok. But I don't understand why to be shocked, why to be scandalized and to claim only now, only for Comodo toolbar. Do you want definitevely purity, cleanliness, not commercial surfing ? Well, stop most part of your internet actvities.

    p.s.: I don't work for Comodo :D :D , I use his fw with D+ but not his av, I use and I try a lot of security softwares looking for the best for me, and I miss System Safety Monitor. My is only a pessimistic but realistic post.

    Maybe you should go on, since you have yet to list a security vendor, one whose primary purpose is to protect users from Google, or Yahoo, FaceBook, MySpace, Hotmail...and then blogs, social networks, IM services.. WebSites, Forums..., banners, pop up, and cookies.

    A security vendor must be held to a higher standard!

    Yaa, I agree, I wrote " Well, I too don't like this way to present the toolbar ". But how many vendors give complete security suites totally freeware ? Kaspersky does it ? Zone Alarm does it ? Avira ? ...Mc Afee ? ...They sell their suite. And most part of real classical HIPS are pay. If you want them, you pay. Please, try to understand my previous post.

    I DIDN'T write: " Comodo is right, Comodo is great, all right. " . Only I was a bit surprised from all this candid stupor about Comodo toolbar. Really all you thought that Comodo had gone on to the endless working gratis for us, developing his programs for the security and the trust ? This was the mean of my post. I presently use Comodo fw and HIPS, but I always doubt about it just for all free, all nice, all the best. So I'm not so surprised for the toolbar. I disagree, but I'm not surprised. I'm not the little Mary's lamb.
    :D :D

    And here I fully concur. "Creating trust online" and "Tricking naives to earn some cents to those who creates that "trust online"" are absolutely incompatible things.

    it actually has to do with the new release, the trust issue caused by the toolbar being auto selected when ther slogan is "creating trust online" it makes it a bit hypocritical and this NEW DNS service that they dont really give much info about other than its "Faster", "Smarter" etc..., so all that is on-topic about the new release, just cuz it isn't happy go lucky praising CIS doesn't mean it is off-topic... and thats great that its being discussed many times, thers clearly a reason for it otherwise people wuldnt say anything... just like the people praising CIS and how it can do no wrong also repeatedly just say how amazing CIS is, o boy, we havent heard that before... :rolleyes: lol

    You are absolutely right, this is distracting. But to be fair, the thread is distracted the same way the banner "creating trust online" was distracted by its owner. Life is life, you cannot get perfect outcome with imperfect actions.

    yea now after reading about comodo selling certificates to Malware sites and with this Tool Bar thing being auto selected, I don't think I will have Comodo installed ever again.

    It's been a LONG time since I put Comodo anything on my computer. And since this Comodo certificates revelation it now seems even less likely that I ever will. I just simply don't trust them any longer.

    Just my opinion...for what it's worth.

    Later...

    There's a world of difference between not prescribing "optimal" medicine, and resorting to shady deals behind the customer's back that run completely contrary to their public claims of "building trust online".

    Stop drinking the Comodo Kool-Aid, and grow up before you join their rank of mindless zombie fanboys.

    I have discovered that any post that includes the word, "fanboy(s)", is of dubious merit.
