what is funny is: Removing it will make your computer more of an `adware` :)

I moved this to the PrivDog Feedback section, I didn't find the help guide in the link to be worthy of being placed in the Help section.  ;D

Removing Privdog will cause you to have
More Ads
More Trackers
More privacy breaches
More companies tracking your behaviour
and so on.....

Hence..removing Privdog is more "adware" than keeping it :) Very funny actually! :)

I understand how it's supposed to work, and tried to get it to work, but it did not so I un-installed it!

Hi Laserfan,
I understand how it's supposed to work, and tried to get it to work, but it did not so I un-installed it!

We will appreciate if you could please provide following details:
1. What exactly didn't work?
2. What web browser and version are you using?
3. From where you got PrivDog, via CIS, installed using installer available on privdog.com or received as part of Comodo Dragon?

Your feedback is valuable to improve product.

Thanks

By removing adware you get rid of it.

I dont get adware anyway. So getting this one is more than normal.

Personally i find the installer of comodo as one of the "sneakiest" by design to let you run it without getting to customize it.
"If there is a problem, it`s something interesting. Try to circumvent or fix it.
In the old ages there has been no support. That`s why we got the brain we have today.
Otherwise we would only be able to call a number and listen.
But there wasnt a phone...."

Sorry I have no interest in PrivDog. Now if you wanna talk why CIS lets Windows go to Sleep/Hibernate in the middle of a scan or something, or why you ditched Comodo Programs Manager, you have my interest.

Adware: provides ads...
removing privdog gives you more ads..

I am still laughing so hard :)

Sure would love to talk about CIS. Please create a new topic in the relevant board and PM me the link so that we can start discussing.
thanks.

Privdog is adware. It provides ads.
I dont have ads without privdog, if i dont want to have ads.

About what are you laughing so hard?

It's not the only kid on the block. What adblock solution are you using?
