Hi robbie73,
Spyware, Malware and Computer virus's all have been designed to intentionally cause harm, to be disruptive or to intentionally hide itself on your Computer.
The above in no way describes Comodos intentions, so please refrain from posting in this manner.
The only ill intentions Comodo has is against Malware itself.
If you do have an issue with a Comodo program, please post for help for the particular product in an appropriate manner and location.
From Captainsticks.


Mr Sticks. regardless of comodo's purported intentions, the effects are akin the to the very definition of malware. if you don't don't like that, take it up with those who define such things. I have already documented why I removed the product in the feedback section of this forum. which apparently didn't get appreciated either. if you won't listen to end users, yet beg
 " Why did you uninstall CIS? Please help us improve by telling us why.‏" then i'm afraid you're blinkered to you own popularity and not end users actual needs. of course you wont be able to see that, being so blinkered.

anyway, the very definition of malware is to remove the end users ability to make decisions about their computers security. that is MALWARE. 
To feed personal and private information to a central server without consent is SPYWARE
To purport to stop scanning and then continue to scan and then use the bandwidth to send information to a central data collation server is both SPYWARE and MALWARE.

Don't like it.. or don't agree.. those are two different matters. i care nothing for the former. like comodo cared less about my rights.  if you don't agree you should have a looky at wireshark logs and your own cpu usage.  If you ask people why they uninstalled.... you will get answers you don't like. telling people off for feedback is counter productive.

I uninstalled it because it was making unwanted connections to the internet despite setting all settings within the comodo user interface to not connect to the internet.

Hi Robbie73,
Just to add my thoughts on the definition of Malware/Spyware/Virus, they all are regarded to have some form of Malicious intent with a small amount of exceptions.

Please note. I am an end user like yourself nothing more.
I was not telling you off, I was just pointing out to say Comodo is intentionally trying to cause harm to end users is IMO incorrect and unfair.
Feedback is welcomed and appreciated, but to call Comodo a virus is incorrect in my opinion.

We do care and as Mouse posted here we do want to help if you have issues.
Kind regards.

A good read guaranteed.

At robbie73.

The installer of CIS clearly gives the user the opportunity:
Quote
to enable"Cloud Based Behaviour Analysis" of unrecognised programs by submitting them to COMODO with respect to the privacy policy


In short: you were informed and given the choice upon installation to enable or disable the cloud look up.

You are starting to tread on thin ice now.

The program is set to limit the running programs, if modules of comodo is not running at startup. comodo should be booting before everyone else and start to monitor the program even if the gui is not running at startup!
Because standart settings "block all unknown requests if the application is closed" is not a normal setting for working every day.

Comodo boots with the Kernel. Long before the GUI is loaded.

1) VERRRRYYYY SLOW Virus Database Update. For CIS Premium (latest). uTorrent is off and this is a brand new laptop. Windows 64 bit

2) Just about the time I would click "No" (or something) every time the "isolate/run program in the sandbox" prompt appears, the other taller box with the "approve"/"disapprove" buttons would SUDDENLY appear which means I often make a mistake and click "disapprove" for a program that I want to "approve" because originally I wanted to click "no" for "run program in sandbox" prompt. Poor design, guys. :(

CIS was bloating my PC performance therefore it was slowing down my PC so was the scanning process.

I'm now using Iolo System Mechanic Professional which has Iolo System Shield Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware & Windows Firewall w/ Advanced Security

COMODO, please improve CIS by making it not slow down PC performance.

I reinstalled CIS because it would greatly delay the installation/updating of programs it didn't recognize. The install process ran significantly longer than it should have. It took so much time to do these things that it appeared as though the program had froze. After waiting for these long delays to end, CIS would come up with a defense+ or firewall alert so I knew this was comodo's fault.

Another problem I was having was that the popups telling me a file has been observed as unrecognized or a program was sandboxed could not be re-enabled after I checked the "Hide these alerts" checkbox.

Try this, It works for me :D
1- Install COMODO and go to defence + and remove the enhanced protection option
2- Check adaptive mode and restart
3- Enjoy a high speed machine :D

I can not play the Game LOST HORIZON from Deep Silver. If I start it, my PC is frozen. Not any Option or Popup from CIS.

With Online Armor it runs without problems.

Before starting a game set CIS to Game Mode. You can do that from the CIS icon in the systray. When starting a game or any other full screen application you don't see D+ alerts.

If you are more familiar with German we do have a German sub board: Deutsch/German.

I uninstalled Comodo Firewall after v3.10 or 3.11, because I didn't like the changes that were made in the later versions.

.. The new red GUI was awful for starters. ..

.. I don't like HIPS, that's why I do not use CIS. Cheers.
