Q:
Where can i download the latest full AV database?

A:
As long as Comodo is not providing this on the public website where trying to keep this post up2date.

Q:
Will this link work with my download manager?

A:
Yes. It will work with your download manager because it supports resuming. That makes it suited for people on slow connections.
