Melih,   http://www.komando.com/index.asp  Kim Komando has the largest talk radio show in the US (all computer related), maybe your marketing dept. can contact her and be able to post links to comodo in her free shareware/freeware section of her website.  She gives links to avg,avast,ZA, outpost, so maybe room for 1 more. :)

For Italian magazines:
(PCWORLD)       http://www.pcw.it/
(PC Professionale)   http://pcpro.mytech.it/
(CHIP)               http://www.chip.it/

For Greek magazines:
(RAM)                 http://www.in.gr/ram/  
(probably the first published greek computer magazine and the one with the most readers in Greece; I add this email info[at]in.gr  because their site is in greek and difficult to navigate )
(CHIP)               http://www.chip.gr/
(PC Magazine)   http://www.e-pcmag.gr/
(PCWORLD)       http://www.pcw.gr/

hope it helped :D

2 popular UK magazines are:

(Computer Active) http://www.computeractive.co.uk/

(computer active already recommend using TrustToolbar or Verification Engine to protect against spoofed sites and you can download Verification Engine and the firewall)

(PC Format) http://www.pcformat.co.uk/

Both of these frequently review and publish information on free firewalls and antiviruses etc.

how about writing our feedback about what we think about Comodo products in eveywhere we can see, eg: download.com and other places where it asks for user feedback. This way other potential users who might be on the fence might give Comodo products a go having seen feedback from real users (and hopefully happy users :-) )

thanks

Melih,

How about a "code snippet" we could insert into our websites showing latest threats, distribution, etc. as determined by the AV lab. Sophos provide this, as do several other AV vendors. I realise that this would only be feasible once the AV side of things is in full swing, but it could also serve as another entry point for comodo.com.

The Sophos code is as follows;

***********************************************
=== START OF CODE ===

<!-- Sophos info feed: top viruses last month - START -->
<script language="JavaScript1.1"
src="http://www.sophos.com/virusinfo/infofeed/topten.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.1">
<!--

// Want to customise the look and feel of the virus information
// on your site? Simply change the following values to your own
// preferences.
//
// Changing the value of 'count' will change the number of rows
// displayed.
// Changing the value of 'target' to 'new' will display the link in
// a new window.

// *****************************************************************

var bgcolour_main     = '#cccccc'
var bgcolour_heading  = '#99cccc'
var text_colour       = '#000000'
var link_colour       = '#000099'
var font_size         = '1'
var font_face         = 'verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif'
var count             =  10   // number should be between 1 and 10
var first_column      = 'yes' // 'yes' or 'no'
var cellspacing       = 'yes' // 'yes' or 'no'
var target            = '_self' // '_self' or 'new'

// *****************************************************************
//  Be careful not to change anything below this line!


var htmltxt = "";
var font_desc = '<font face="' + font_face + '" size="'
  + font_size + '" color="' + text_colour + '">';
var tmp_count = 0;
   
if (first_column == "no") {
  colspan = 1;
} else {
  colspan = 2;
}

if (cellspacing == "no") {
  cellspacing = 0;
} else {
  cellspacing = 2;


if (count > 0) {
  if (count > 10) {count = 10}
  htmltxt += '\n<table cellpadding="6" cellspacing="'

      } else {

}

// Please do not remove the code after this point.

htmltxt += '\n</table>';

document.write(htmltxt);
//-->

<!-- Sophos info feed: top viruses last month - END -->

Any thoughts about making an online scan available through (shudder) ActiveX or Java, similar to Pandas?

i think you should get some giveaways to hand out

comodo-stickers, shirts,...

my favourites:
umbrellas + condoms with a "protected by comodo" imprint ;)

especially the condoms would be great to hand out at colleges, universities...

but first you'd have to get some computer magazines to test comodo products against other programs n oone likes to buy a pig in a poke -even if the pig is free...
so you'll have to get to No.1 in all the magazine's antivirus and firewall ratings

I have a website Tech-Pro that reviews and sells quality software utilities. Really I try to earn money from affiliate commissions on software sales, but I actually make hardly any sales of security products like Kaspersky AV which I currently promote. So I might add some reviews of these free Comodo products instead.

By the way, I have a contact who is the compiler of the PC Advisor (UK) cover CDs and I have already suggested to him including the suite of security tools on the CD.

Comodo Personal Firewall is now at The PC Guru.

By the way, why is the favicon for the CPF site an Internet Explorer icon? :)
