    8 Lines and this is your only contribution? there is a big difference btw spyware and a monitoring software, you don't install intentionally the first or the program makes you think that it does something different.
    I was expecting you to refute your statements and answer the observations made before.
    Nobody here understands why monitoring software is malware and what would be the difference if a the AV detects it or not.
    Are you going to buy the program and install it to monitor yourself?
    By the way the website is not dangerous at all.

    As happens with the cracks and keygens some vendors decide to block them some others don't...
    If somebody has physical access to your computer does not matter what AV you have installed.
    If you are worried about you spying yourself try Ubuntu

    No of course im not unless i would wish to spy on family members etc which would seem strange practice in my opinion.(FWIW).
    CNET does seem to have a bad reputation.using download wrappers and paying for reviews etc.
    All this over one keylogger program.o_O

    Best of luck to comodo and i intend to try it when it goes final as this is where all this interrogation seems to have stemmed from.:cautious:

    I have made my statements about this keylogging program and the findings about it.
    As you have said yourself why would you need a keylogger commercial or not installed on your computer.

    I am not prepared to refute anything and if something detects this as malicious then we should assume it is or get rid of the software detecting it and put trust into something else.:eek:

    What interrogation? From the beginning everything was pretty clear for everybody else.
    What findings? that you discover that a website that claims to sell a monitoring software and it is actually selling a monitoring software?

    This is a lie
    This paragraph makes me laugh :D So what? you will find and install another monitoring software not yet detected by the AV? jajajajjaaja
    A program is telling you that is malicious but we are all expect a little bit more from the human brain, you know? is able to reason.

    As it happens with the cracks and keygens some vendors decide to block them some others don't...
    If somebody has physical access to your computer does not matter what AV you have installed.
    If you are worried about you spying yourself try Ubuntu
    But the best protection better than any AV is to add a password to your windows user account and block it when you leave it alone and encrypt your HDD with True Crypt

    Anyway if you want to have this false sense of security that an AV can give you detecting this kind of programs use them. ;)

    seems to be working fine.

    on another note, get yourself a good imaging app and you'll never be weary to try new things.

    if the thing you are trying eat your computer, no problem, just re-image your system and you're back in business withing a few minutes.

    It's extremely light. I actually wonder if they are hiding usage in temp processes that start up and then close, etc..

    For me it is using less CPU that even WSA, which is saying a lot. About 14meg of ram, and next to no disk i/o.

    If i install the beta version then there is a chance i will have to uninstall it when the final version comes outo_O
    Unless comodo internally updates this beta to full version.:doubt:

    good point there.

    i did try the new Comodo for one evening just for fun and restored an image after i was done.
    i did not install the AV because i have no interest in having a real-time AV running on my machine.

    it seemed very stable and light.
    i'm looking forward to see tests done with the new sandbox and the Virtual Kiosk as well, to see how well they can contain malware.

    I am curious as to why so many that have sandboxie in their signatures are testing this? Is it still a traditional HIPS at all or basically Comodo Firewall with an application sandboxing option like sandboxie + a full VM option in the kiosko_O

    I am such a minimalist I don't know if I will install this personally, probably just recommend it. I may play with it and re-image just to test.

    Consider it a FW+AV+HIPS+BB+SANDBOX/VM.

    Sounds confusing right? Well... it works pretty damn well.
    I personally don't use the Kiosk (and rarely use the sandbox), but its there if you're a really careful guy/girl. Also, there's no need to use HIPS. The behaviour blocker works pretty well. So you're left with a top notch FW+AV+BB with very few popups. It's a pretty good security pack to work with, light as a feather and free as in beer :)

    Yep CIS has secured Windows about as well as possible for a long time, even in 2005-6 I remember tons of people saying it was as bulletproof as windows gets except back then it had lots of popups.

    last dumb question: how does it function as a BB?

    While many people would agree with you,keyloggers by nature are sneaky and morally dubious,there are those that do use them.

    As Rejzor said,parents sometimes want to monitor what their kids are getting up to on chat sites,etc.Employers also,on occasion,monitor their staff in case sensitive data is being revealed or inappropriate activity is taking place.

    Not a dumb question at all.

    It's early days yet,but the BB should harness most of the power of D+ and offer similar levels of protection.It'll likely need some tweaking before power users would trust it ahead of their own D+ decision making though.

    could some post cpu usage (percentages and seconds) plus disk I/O and mention how long session lasted (say after an hour of browsing)

    Appart from the UI that is, at this point, a bit badly organized, and appart from the Kiosk that can give you a 'bloat' feeling if you don't use it (like me), this version is really amazing, and i do believe there is not a paid product that can perform as good as CIS, even with version 5.

    I have used Comodo from its start, installed a bunch of software through out the years, but Comodo just gives me a warm feeling that i don't need any extra layer of security. Ofcourse i'm a bit paranoid, so i keep installing all sorts *

    You can always just disable program updates if you really wish to stay with 5.10.

    I'm pretty sure version 5 will inform you about the update. You don't need to be searching for it.
