    Lots of Comodo. I do not run anything from Comodo. Period. To each his own.

    Chiron's other articles are also heavy on Comodo products, that I'd never put on my computer. But as a wise man said, to each his own.

    for every program it says not to delete or remove any files if I'm not sure...the program produces a lot of fps...and a fp on the wrong side could mess up my pc.......the article is self conflicting.....how can I be sure.....I'm not sure if the files are malware.....that is why I would be trying the programs to analyse and look for an infection in the first place... duh?........

    There are some excellent tools out there to supplement real-time protection:
    - Comodo CCE/Killswitch/Autoruns
    - Emsisoft Emergency Kit
    - MBAM
    - HitmanPro

    It's actually getting pretty hard to miss malware with these tools.

    You're talking about signatured malware, right? ;)

    Interesting read. I'm curious, why do several of you dislike Comodo products?

    It's not because of the products themselves...All it's just about Comodo CEO :rolleyes:

    Go figure...

    I can't speak for anyone else, but what matters to me is how Comodo software works or doesn't work on my computer, and if other security software works better for me. Of secondary importance is how Comodo from the CEO down deals with complaints, how the company has treated some of its employees, and how some fans react when anything negative is said about Comodo.
