    Hi Everyone,

    We are really excited to announce that we have just released COMODO Internet Security 4.0.135239.742! CIS v4 has significant improvements over CIS v3 family. We have included a lot of exciting new technologies to combat malware and significantly reduce the number of popup alerts while providing increased protection.

    COMODO would like to thank all of the BETA testers who voluntarily joined the beta testing program and provided the feedback about the product.

    Whats New in COMODO Internet Security 4.0.135239.742?

    NEW! Seamless livePCsupport Integration
    This version has a built-in Live Support for getting instant help from the experts for any type of problems.
    NEW! New User Interface Theme
    A new user interface theme has been introduced with this version.
    NEW! New Web Based Installer
    Now, there is a single setup file which downloads and installs the required products according to operating system the computer has. The product installers are created with Microsoft Windows Installer for native installation/uninstallation support.
    NEW! Integrated Sandbox
    Proactive Defense i.e. Defense+ now includes a built-in sandbox which combines file system/registry virtualization and least-privileged user account principle in order to combat with unknown malware.
    IMPROVED! Default Deny Protection
    Defense+ now automatically sandboxes all unknown applications/executables until they are analyzed.
    IMPROVED! Significantly fewer number of popup alerts
    Defense+, with the help of new sandboxing technologies, has a more powerful default security policy while having significantly fewer number of alerts compared to previous versions.
    Also in this version, Defense+ and Firewall, by default, do not create automatic rules for already known safe applications.
    IMPROVED! Popup alerts layout
    The new popup alerts now include additional options which allow the users to take COMODO Time Machine snapshots or set Windows system restore points, submit suspicious files for immediate analysis.
    IMPROVED! Antivirus Engine
    Antivirus engine is improved for better detection and cleaning. The new engine now has disinfection support for the infected files.
    A new command line virus scanner (cavscan.exe) has been introduced in order to address the need for scanning the computers in windows safe mode or scanning files transferred from MSN etc.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q1 - Do I need a separate installer if i am using a 64 bit operating system?
    A1 - No. The installer will download the appropriate setup for you and install.

    Q2 - I am a CIS 3.x User. Will I get the updates?
    A2 - We haven't released the updates to the existing users yet. But we will. When we release, in the upcoming weeks, you will be able to update it without having to reinstall this new version.

    Q3 - Do I need to download these 3 setup files in order to get all the products?
    A3 - No. If you download CIS Free installer, you will be able to choose which products you want to install. We have provided standalone firewall and AV installers for convenience for some of our users. If you want to install both firewall and antivirus, you should use COMODO Internet Security Installer.

    Q4 - I was a BETA tester and still using the BETA versions. What should I do?
    A4 - You should uninstall the BETA version and use this new version. However, although not recommended, you can use automatic updater to update to this version from the BETA versions.

    Regards,
    Egemen

    Egemen,


    I see the online installer by default has the Toolbar (surf) checked, i would have this unchecked. because some people dont like or want it. should be an option.

    Curious; did the bug that prevented WLM from being minimized to the tray in windows 7 (at least 64 bit) that was present in the beta get fixed?

    Not sure, I haven't really had a chance to play with it at all. By what everyone is saying pretty much all of the bugs in Beta have been worked out. We should find out soon. :D

    That's a good question. I've heard a lot of talk about overhauling the GUI. Couple that with refining some of the new aspects of V4 and this thing should be looking pretty good.:thumb: I'm loving it so far, it's so quiet...;)

    Out of curiosity, why do you offer the download now through a 2.7 mb stub instead of a full installer[like before] when the majority of the Internet users connect through broadband?

    Thank you

    Why don't you do a little research, maybe go to the forum? Maybe you can figure it out in a flash. I wouldn't just throw my hands up and call it crap.:doubt:

    Thanks, Watasha! You and Comodo made my evening. :) Just upgraded two computers from RC to final without any problems.

    I agree with your other post that this is the lightest security suite that I have ever run. The other thing I really like is that it always picks up my network and that I do not have to do anything extra to make file and printer sharing work.

    The comodo leak test is outdated, this results are normal, V4 is better than V3. Also you should read how the sandbox work.

    I tested the lasted RC and I feel that this "final" version will be like a RC2.

    THe offline links are:

    That test is out of date and doesn't take the sandbox into account.

    It really works like a charm. Hardly notice it and quite slim in cpu and ram usage.
