 was comodo antivirus and most of comodo product  user for many years but cis doesnt work for me no more since april 2013(so called comodo update created many issues for me)) so i uninstalled cis,but remnants of privdog remain on my computer,its masquerading as many different files in registry.
message to comodo why u have to do this privdog as mad cow lurking on my system.Message from comodo director saying onething and another  the comodo software saying free,free but after uninstalling  privdog with comodo program manager it still remains,i see it as problem,so now whos using any information from my system if any ,come on comodo come clean,dont do this to us.short of another factory reset is there a way to remove privdog entirely or comodo likes to watch us privately,wats the scoop comodo?

PrivDog like any other type of software can end up sending data that should not.
Windows (MS) does this, direct browsers in advertisements even without any extension installed third party.

The question in relation to this type of software is the "new way of thinking about the web" and as our navigation data are delivered to "trusted advertisers."
If we stop to think about it, not would use the internet.

   lol,thank you,but it shouldn't be this way,all i am trying to do is  raise awareness that  after uninstall,  privdog the software should
 delete but its not happening,i uninstalled cis x it wont work for me,understood nothing in life is free,comodo shouldnt do this to anyone,and as soon as all turn on the internet the govt,(nsa),Canadian  digital hawks,and who all start watching,even google,yahoo,all ads sites,my dsl provider gets money from clicksor,(billion $$$$ ad company)dsl is side line business,hand in hand its all about $$$$$,net users get targeted by ads.my 2 cents,all i am asking comodo  is if we no longer use cis,or any of their software,privdog must be deleted when uninstalled.

Hi jamodo,
PrivDog can be uninstalled via Windows control panel 'Programs & Features' the same as any other program.

Kind regards.
