Now there's worse, I mean really musch worse.

The fact is I just discoverd some week ago that developers of CIS not only upgraded their version of CIS since a few weeks to one that consumes some 80% of CPU, to me and a few others (the cmdagent case), but I've come to the conclusion that COMODO leaves so much stuff on your PC while uninstalling it on your PC "the normal way", so much in fact you won't beleve your eyes.

Yes, after the last normal uninstall of CIS I was left with over 8000 registry entries. Not possible ? If so I can prove it. The thing is after an install or an uninstall (that I'm not sure), every program including Comodo makes some temperory files.

Comodo CIS makes over 8000 of them. Now they get deleted, so that's OK. But this is what I found out: every temp file makes a corresponding "long" registry entry. When the temp files are removed, by yourself or by Comodo (I hope - I'm not sure, c'se I move them myself from time to time ), the registry entries are left over and they will stay there forever.

So yes this too is indispensable.

Incorrect.
It is windows that creates registry entries for each and every excuse, and Temp files are one of its excuses.
I do agree that temp files are inconvenient, but they are not in themselves malevolent.

Still true. Well all depends on your point of view. I you put the dots on the i you can say that it's Windows that perhaps creates the temp files.

It's also Windows that installs Comodo. Comodo uses some of Windows buil-in tools. Now the developers know that I suppose ? or not ? of course they know.

It's because Comodo installs or removes something from your PC that temp files and I hope you agree to admit reg entries are created too. Reg entries that correspond to temp files.

Now are these temp files removed by Comodo or not while installing or removing Comodo CIS ? I hope and guess so.

Anyway it's Comodo's job (the developers) to see that these reg entries are removed too ? Let me point out that not everyone uses a regcleaner.

Almost all software developers just don't care what's left behind on your PC after their software is developed. That'll teach ppl. to remove their software. Is that the general idea behind it ? I don't think so, but it's just so much more work for the developers to make software that leaves almost nothing behind after an uninstall.

6 months ago I had CIS installed on my x64 W7 machine. I uninstalled it through the control panel with no complications. I manually removed any folders/files, and chased all of that with Auslogics Registry cleaner which found and removed 4 or 5 items. Then I found this tool and ran it, with no issues and all was good.

Today I was doing some looking in: Device Manager>View>Show Hidden Devices>Non Plug and Play Drivers and to my surprise, there were still 5 Comodo Drivers installed??? I manually uninstalled them and all is good, but now I'm wondering what else Comodo left behind? >:(

I have only had Panda Cloud, avast! Internet Security (my current AV) and Comodo on this machine. Panda left no drivers behind, just Comodo.

This should be addressed.  ???

Thanks; I've only been working on it here and there, haven't been consistent with it.

Not Much of a Programmer or a Developer Honestly It's just a hobby..

Not Released Yet;
The Moderators are gathering ideas and putting it into this tool; thus why it is taking such long time to get it out;
The Current Screenshot is not what it looks like now (thats how much changes are going into it)..

I'll upload more screenshots and keep ya'll updated.

Thanks....Jake
