    Ssj, your point is well taken, but the lack of other companies offering "everything but the kitchen sink" doesn't make the "gift" of an added function that finds new websites and lets people rate them any better of an idea. Do you REALLY want the problems that plague apps like Siteadvisor in your firewall and HIPS program? I'm fully aware you can opt out of it, but does the IDEA of it sound good to you?

    Edit: I fear the complaints and back and forth arguments aren't going to stop until one day Comodo either decides to go full pay and leave out the junk or just collapses. They've shot themselves in the foot twice now and as we've all seen in their forums, they don't handle the outcome very well. They're just walking into one mess after another sadly.

    CIS runs fine by it self. Hence running with another AV can cause conflicts.

    Cheers,

    yes, comodo av is not good enough to fully replace major known avs like nod32 and avira , but its firewall and hips ownz the market and should be used along side avira to achieve the best security software can give and yes for FREE hehe

    Quote from Melih regarding the toolbar:
    Its a new toolbar, not made by a shady company. But searches will still be powered by ask.

    I wonder why some people are not able to opt out of the toolbar but they are smart enough to understand the alerts of Defence+.

    I really enjoy these threads relating to Comodo, there is so much passion on both sides.
    Haha

    Version is a little confusing 3.9 then 3.10. What about 3.09 then 3.10?

    I would imagine that the more adamantly one insists that they are not doing something to make money, the more difficult it becomes to actually make money on it.

    Unfortunately, there is very bad taste sensation involved with eating your own words.

    Ok, after reading so much rhetoric I decide to install the full CIS on a box to used by another, someone who expects her computer to run like her stove.

    After installation and requested reboot, I get message from Windows Security Center that definitions are too old.

    Open up CIS and try to do update, and get this message:
    Failed to update the virus signatue datebase.
    Please check you internet connection and try again.


    Since I don't use AV component of CIS, I don't worry too much about having latest update, but for someone who use AV, CIS is very poor.. the entire AV component is poor, the ThreatCast is extremely poor...

    Comodo needs to update its infrastructure.

    for the people who say we shouldnt debate this in this thread. if u even try to complain about something on comodo forums they wıll just ban you and then the problem is solved for them. so its pretty pointless to do that over ther. they only accept praise for CİS on their forums... :rolleyes:

    And what's even funnier about it is that a Comodo forum mod comes to Wilders and tries to make comments about the quality of moderation here. :shifty:

    No I don´t think so. Comodo created a great firewall+hip and changed a lot imho. It also pushed outpost firewall that it became better and now nobody will ever talk again about zone alarm, many good points.

    this is totally not true

    should be noted that we now have free version of OP which is by miles more functional than old version of free OP... Comodo changed a lot in FW industry

    Comodo Internet Security 3.10.101801.529 - not for newbie

    According to Comodo ,CIS has 15 million installations?
    Its very poor usability can only mean that millions of people think they have tier-1 protection when they do not.:(

    I have had to remove this Comodo Internet Security 3.10.101801.529 from my sister's friend's computer and install NIS.
    CIS is suits me currently, because I like having the feeling of total control, but IMO it is not suitable for the average user.
    All they have really done since release of v3 is make some settings default to reduce pop-ups, but the overly excitable pop-up mechanism is still there.

    CIS can only provide world-class protection if it is in expert hands.
    (Maybe that is why they are pushing for the unknown-tech-in-unknown-country to take full control of your pc... :cautious: )

    Totally agree. Infact it,s true for any classical HIPS, they can never be for ordinary users.

    IMO they must have two options on install.

    1- Default mode - it will install only AV with basic firewall( with a very good white list) and no HIPS( may some very smart behav blocker in place)
    2- Expert mode - with all bells n whistles

    Again for us, not for ordinary users. Not at all.

    IMO Comodo currently lacks the resources to make this a reality, a smart behav blocker, so I do not expect this anytime soon.

    CIMA is extremely useful, if they manage to shorten analyze time on/for local machine for new executable, behav blocker will be more than enough for n00bz, hopefully in v.4...

    Given the poor usability of both the v2 and v3 lines, I would be surprised if the artificial intelligence of this behav blocker broke any significant new ground.

    There is a third option to do for ordinary users: a set of preconfigured rules for most part of the common applications in the HIPS, as KIS 2009 had. So the user is partially - or very partially - protected: he doesn't know what HIPS makes, but HIPS something makes. :D

    IMO Comodo themselves are still learning how to tame their own HIPS, and do not do a very good job at making default configurations.
    The default configurations of other vendors provide a better balance for the average user.
