I’ve been looking at Comodo’s CIS as a replacement for AVG for my school. I don’t mind the manual install of software if it saves money - but I’ve been surprised by the amount of time it takes me to install a fresh copy of CIS - and wondering if it’s normal.
- Uninstall AVG and reboot. (Reboot #0 - I expect this reboot)
- Download the software from Comodo’s site, and install it. Reboot. (Reboot #1 - Microsoft and Panda don’t require a reboot here)
- Get updates (Its still been less than 30 minutes since I downloaded the software) - and CIS tells me it must reboot to apply the updates. (Reboot #2 - This reboot frustrates me!)
- Get updates AGAIN - CIS claims its never been updated. No reboot required this time.
(I’ve done this on 4 different machines - 2 XP, 1 Windows Server 2008 R2, and 1 Windows Server 2003 - all of the processes were the same.)
I want to give CIS a fair chance - its the only product that will actually install on a Server OS, but its also the highest rated of the free software for catching viruses. Is there a way to avoid the reboots that I’m missing?
