My friend had Comodo installed on his laptop, however wanted to change to Kaspersky. We ran a gsi report and his system is full of Comodo left-overs. We ran the removal tool etc., did the usual uninstall from control pannel, why is it not removing it???
Malwaretips Super Moderator littlebits stated that once Comodo is installed you cannot get rid of it, is this true?
With Windows 7 or younger you may have left overs of CIS drivers in Legacy Keys. To remove the socalled Legacy Keys, which are otherwise hard to remove, open Device Manager from the command prompt using the following two commands:
Set Device Manager to show hidden devices under menu option View. Then see if there are Comodo Internet Security related drivers left in non Plug and Play drivers. If so select the driver → click right → uninstall. Do this for all present CIS drivers. Do a reboot when it has been requested. Legacy entries that are ghosted are empty; they are not starting a driver. A none ghosted will start a driver.
Other than that you can use Eusing Free Registry Cleaner and Auslogics Free Registry Cleaner to remove possible other left overs.
Let us know how registry keys GSI report reports after the above.
No ran the tool in normal mode as it’s Windows 8.1 - I was told once by Microsoft that registry cleaners are very dangerous and that the registry can cope with registry orphans and still functions, however remove even one wrong key can render the PC inoperable???
GSI shows up Comodo as incompatable software so we are lost…
