    Thanks. But I miss SSM: if Vitsk had continued the development, implemented the file protection... :(

    Since this thread is about Comodo Internet Security 3.10.101801.529 Released I would like to ask question related to this topic.

    Will this be the last release of CIS that has the gratuitous "feature" of opt-in-by-default of Ask Toolbar?

    Why is Ask the search engine?

    Sorry, but I still don't understand why a social authentication tool should be opt-in by default in a security program!

    Well Then everybody has the right to their opinion. Consequently, I will express mine. If you do not like Comodo then do not complain abou it, simply do not use their products. I really do not understand why is it so difficult to untick a selection, if one does want a toolbar and proceed with the installation?

    By the way Comodo is not alone in this; there are other companies that provide the Yahoo, Msn, Ask, Google toolbars. In the end nobody will be able to install anything since a toolbar option is provided by default. :D


    Peace.

    if nobody pointed out flaws or complained about a product, nothing wuld ever happen and nothing wuld change, everything wuld stay the same and thats just not how the world works, everything needs some sort of criticism otherwise ther wuld be nothing to give the dev's any motivation to change their flaws.

    the difference is this is a security program that want's u to install a toolbar and those other apps are just regular progs and if they are a security prog then chances are its been discussed before.

    The so-call flaw has been pointed out already, now it is beating on a dead horse. Beside, the default selection of a toolbar is not a flaw.

    Peace.

    ur saying having a security software to auto opt-in the installation of a SOCIAL Networking toolbar is normal and not wrong? :cautious: and the more its repeated, maybe the message will eventually sink in to the dev's. if something doesn't happen, do protesters just stop protesting for change after the first time? no, thas the only way to get the point through sometimes.

    You did not say wrong before you said flaw. So I pointed out that having a toolbar selected by default is not a flaw. However, now you said wrong. To me it is not wrong, to you it is; and let's leave it at that. Beside, I was just expressing my opinion and you were just expressing yours. In conclusion let us all value and respect each other opinions.

    Peace.

    i have no idea what u just said, all i see is like double negatives everywer o_O and something that is flawed can be wrong, either way it is a negative aspect of CIS.

    I am really still shocked to see all these off topic/non purposive post that prove no beneficiary to a user who is interested in that "Comodo Internet Security 3.10.101801.529 Released" - And now the thread will be closed by a Wilders Moderator/Admin because those users also punished the OP by poisoning the thread and that is just simply unfair.

    I am not a moderator here, But I hope people respect other peoples opinions and stick with the thread title in the future especially when it has to do with COMODO. A Wilders Mod warned once, A Wilders Admin removed posts and warned twice, Yet people still don't get it and carry on about half-cocked statements with no facts to back up there posts.

    Thank you to the people who did PM me for help/feedback without any of this inconvenience caused.

    Cheers,
    Josh

    i dont understand how this is off-topic at all, this thread is about the NEW release of CIS right? and the Hopsurf toolbar or w/e its called is NEW to this release correct? so now explain to me how discussing this toolbar and the NEW DNS Service is off-topic from the title which is to talk about the NEW release. as i said, just cuz its not happy and the comments aren't to suit ur wants, doesn't mean it doesn't apply.

    the thread title isnt "if you need help with CIS post here" so thats fine ur getting PM's for assistance, thats how it should be, this thread is to discuss the new release, whether it be positive or negative aspects of it, thats something ull need to learn to deal with cuz thats just how things are, not everything is gunna be positive praising of CIS, sorry to burst ur bubble.

    and the lack of proof u mentioned, lol the proof is right in front of everyone who installs this program and from history as well. and the proof from the DNS service, well thats what im looking for, where's some sort of agreement for privacy for the DNS? i haven't seen it and thats something that sounds pretty reasonable to have as a minimum in my opinion, where is ANY proof from Comodo that their DNS is truely "faster", "smarter" etc. sorry but their word isn't gunna cut it for me. so before you saying how our remarks is proof less waste of time, why don't you show some proof from ur side of the issue.

    i agree, this shuld not become a personal thread and thats why i havent posted anything personal, ive talked strictly about the product in question and i can't help if some people don't like criticism about a piece of software.

    agreed, and the toolbar is definetly an area of improvement, if they wuld like an effective toolbar, look at Norton's, it isn't half bad, in general those site rating type of toolbar's are the only type being effectively and practically used in a Security Software IMO. but having a toolbar like theirs, for social networking or searching is just a bad idea for this purpose.

    its good that u didnt install it, but having it included in the package at all is big miss IMO, bad idea from the start to have something so irrelevant to be included in a Security Suite. it just has no place there.

    I find it interesting that this question that I have presented has been so easily ignored.

    Look here buddy, unless you and 3xist are twins, or one and the same, let him speak for himself, and I already know your positions, ok?
    Just give it a rest.

    COMODO don't use Ask Toolbar Anymore, period. Only Search Engine is based on ASK. And yes it will be kept left default opt-in, It's a fun social tool but in the end its doing it for a good cause to help users share sites, rate them, etc. :)

    You don't like that? Then that's a shame! I can't do anything about that. ;)

    Cheers,

    Is this a from-the-ground-up implementation, or is this simply a reworked UI with the underlying Ask system functions intact?

    Nope. This is a ground up solution, FULLY Developed by COMODO. It took a while to build the toolbar because of the infrastructure that supports HopSurf. Only the engine is based on Ask, Again.

    If it is ground up, engine cannot be based on Ask, and if engine is based on Ask, isn't this just the Ask Toolbar by another name with a different face?

    I don't understand either why it needs to be opt-in by default on a Security program.
