    i never saw comodo scoring good in two independent test organisations, at least.
    Their users claim such tests are not real world or these tests are easy, whats the results? They failed the tests :D

    It clearly says in the features section that it has safe run. Kaspersky as well, which runs on 64 bit systems, has safe run.

    It does state it has 'Safe run'. But there's no system requirements for the software... so we cannot be sure it's x64 compatible.

    wow they dont even test dr web any more.. agreed on commodo great firewall but i would not use it in full suite form... glad to see the normal doing well and still dont really care for these tests because they fail a product for even one fp... every product will at some point have fp's no way around that but of course some more than others.

    I don't think it is WSA that's tested, it's just in BETA.

    I am more interested in the test once they do incorporate it. I think they are just sharing samples right now? I think the one tested does not have the full Prevx cloud though (correct me if I am wrong though).

    If you want an AV with regular quality, at least, these test must be the first to look at.

    I wonder if anybody does? They withdrew from AV-Comparatives a long time ago and you say they're not in this test either.

    Emsisoft has failed 5 of the last 7 VB100 tests due to FPs.

    Comodo failed coz of 4 false postives. It has improved a lot. Check out the graph.

    How many samples do they test? I don't feel like paying $20 to find out, and I don't see it posted in this thread.

    Dr Web Cureit has a good reputation as a cleaner for infected computers therefore one could infer the AV must be at least as good. On the other hand I would never buy an AV that consistently refuses to be tested by independent organizations.

    Comodo has been very effective with their Firewall and Anti-Malware (D+) modules, just not the AV module. BTW, they never missed anything in this test, just a few false detections.

    Comodo failed because 4 FP (it detected FileZilla as Trojan Downloader :eek:) & 11 Suspicious in clean sets. The detection rate of polymorphic lower than others (only 95.51%).
