    New beta runs much smoother, the memory leak with the scanner being fixed is a huge improvement, it's actually looks like a very old 1980's product

    The defense+ is quite amazing i must say, accidently ran some malware outside my VM the other day, and defense+ nabbed it(the antivirus in comodo completely sucks), saved my ass ;)

    With some time, comodo has some potential with this, def some potential

    Thanks for the feedback.

    the AV will improve over time... This time in 2009 we should be competing with top AV's like Avira, NOD32, Kaspersky, etc. And yes Defense+ is an excellent addition, What the AV doesn't detect, D+ will prevent.

    :)

    This was said once the last time that Comodo released its last AV. it did not live up to the hype.

    We shall see what happens with this one but tell I see some results Ill stick with what I trust. ;)

    Well to be honest AV hardly detects anything but EICAR. And Defense+, well as much as it might be useful, it's dumb and pops up bilions of popups just when installing some crappy small program. Don't even try to install smething big.
    You might click that till next christmas...
    Competing with AVIRA and KAV ? I have yet to see that one. At pace at which AVIRA is evolving, Comodo will never catch it. Same goes to Kaspersky tech.
    That would be kinda possible if time would stop for all the others...

    Well, 3xist said "the AV will improve over time...", so it really doesn't do much good to tell them that it "hardly detects anything", now does it? It's most likely not that good right now, but sheesh, give those guys a break; you didn't expect them to strike gold on their beta version, did you ;) ? If they're going to work on it, then we'll just have to wait and see, instead of making the same point over and over again... :ouch:

    As for D+, I'm pretty sure you can change which notifications you want to see or not in the Advanced Settings: if you want COMODO to watch for disk access, keyboard access, etc. And it also does have a specific installation mode that suppresses popups; it works fine for me, maybe you should try it.

    Whats the point of supressing popups? It's like disabling HIPS all together.

    Well, then again, alot of users are complaining that Kaspersky gives them BSOD on reboot, after installing it. It gave me BSOD. And I tried 10 times. Gave up.

    Honestly, Kaspersky is old news. It was great when there weren't there much AVs and all where bloatware. But not what happens nowadays.

    Symantec learnt the lesson and version 2009 is light on resources, and on my tests I could run eset nod32 and norton 2009 without any problems. Both with AP on.

    Don't take me wrong. I am not a fan o Symantec or anything else, as a matter of fact, but they sure improved their products performance and detection.

    And talking about Comodo AV, of course it won't achive the top any time soon. But it sure can and will be on top, aside with others. Just give it time.

    I mean, lets see Spybot and Ad-aware. When they first appeared, they were the best. Spybot was. Nowdays? Nah! SAS or Malwarebytes.

    So, is it really impossible for Comodo AV to become one the best? I truly have no idea. Only time will tell. But unless you can predict the future, don't say it won't.

    I'm in software stuff long enough to make pretty accurate predictions.
    And so far i've predicted pretty much all malware trends and many evolutions in software developement.

    The claim that you predicted right in the past does not mean you can predict right in the future. NO ONE can.

    I prefer facts.

    Fact: Comodo AV still has a long way to go.
    Fact: No one can say it will or not become one of the best

    Best regards

    You don't need to be psychic for that. They promised a can of whoop ass last time, they did it this time and i don'tt hink it'll change much in teh future.
    They are simply too green to do anything like that. On the other hand Kaspersky, avast! or even latest chart master AVIRA have long years of work behind them in a very specialized field. You can bet on it that they can track and develop stuff much easier and also far more effective. And tests simply prove that.
