Ohh ok ok ... you are right, the moderators are not employees of Comodo 'officially'.
You all know, the geek buddy and dragon can be deselected, but there is a very tiny link to that option below, which makes users just go next next while instalation. Why do Comodo need to do such tricks? these activities are scam like.

Installers of Java and Adobe Reader f.e. have additional options similarly tucked away. It seems a new trend in UI design of installers.

One of the first things i got taught about the internet and installations: Look carefully what you are about to do.

Tell this your friends, and they have a harmless chance to learn it while installing a security product ;)

There are a lot of reputated programs that give you the choice of installing unexpected things with them. I dont like it. But as i know it, i am reading the windows, and making the decision i want to make.

If you call this scam, you relativate real scams, crimes. In real scams, you dont have an informed choice.

Btw, make sure that you dont have a "mc affee" product on your computer, which you might have gotten by installing flash player on the page :D

Otherwise we would only be able to call a number and listen."

hmmmm. thank you for telling. :) ... you are a nice guy.
Adobe Java are hidden criminals everyone knows that, but that doesnt mean Comodo should follow them. Comodo started with genuine interface and generous brief software when they were in the phase of attracting users to them. They should keep the good work.
Clockwork, when some company needs to use visual tricks to make the user ignore or not notice an option, is a scam like activity. Definitely it is some kind of spyware activity. I mean, those who look carefully dont install, or remove the unwanted software later, but those who are not able to notice are almost 70% if not 90%, or if you pull down you still have 50% users who will fall prey to these comodo suspicious needs. I know we have to look carefully, thats how I found it, but 90% of users fall prey to these visual tricks.

First, tell me why do Comodo need to push Geekbuddy and Dragon in users computers? They even make ugly screens like I agree to install Geekbuddy, or I agree to install Comodo and proceed. So that the users let it be in fear that the agreement is for the whole application he wants to install in the pc. and we let the installation.
When I find the link to deselect the options to install those two pushware, it still installs anyway. so here is there trick. this is spyware like activity. You really know about it. You are just showing it like you dont understand.

First, tell me why .......

No! Stop deflecting.

Before there are any other issues raised, please refer back 8 posts and explain

You stated this in direct relation to CIS without providing any proof or corroboration.

Explain this.
Retract this.

These are your two options - not asking a deflecting question - just these two.

I cannot see this, please highlight for me. Thanks. But, I am seeking supporting evidence of CIS being spyware.. not an explanation.

I think the OP speaks of this...

First, tell me why do Comodo need to push Geekbuddy and Dragon in users computers? They even make ugly screens like I agree to install Geekbuddy, or I agree to install Comodo and proceed. So that the users let it be in fear that the agreement is for the whole application he wants to install in the pc. and we let the installation.
When I find the link to deselect the options to install those two pushware, it still installs anyway. so here is there trick. this is spyware like activity. You really know about it. You are just showing it like you dont understand.

It sounds more like a bug and a mistake rather than spyware but that's just me.
