Interesting. Raymond’s test CPU is faster mine, yet in his findings CIS delayed the average boot time by 9.77 seconds. If my boot time was delayed that many seconds, I would notice it without a doubt. On my PC, there was no hardly any difference with or without CIS. Then again, I don’t have Comodo anti-virus and my OS is nLited and tweaked.
PrevX can scan 13.23GB is 24 seconds!! ???
Maybe if it was a single 13.23GB file. Either that or I’ve got to get one of those hard drives!!
Interesting test though.
It’s all cloud based and AFAIK they only do a quick scan (of the most important sections) only ?
So it didn’t actually scan 13.23GB of files on the file system?
I would doubt so, I cant see it happen. That would be 13.23 GB in 24 secs → that would be uploading 1.8GB/s to the cloud for analysis. and even if you have such a fast connection, I doubt the harddrive is able to access all that data so fast.
So I think it only scans executables (actual threads)
A post I’m basing myself on :
It doesn’t necessarily scan every file but it considers all of them - most of the files on the disk are useless/inactive and pose no threat to the end user when just sitting dormant so there is no need to waste time looking for them.
