cmdagent CPU usage at 13-19%

I have used Comodo in one form or another for the last 3 years since a friend and computer tech at the NSA told me it was a decent and free program. I left norton and others because of the resource impact it had on my pc. Now Comodo seems to be killing CPU cycles and i have tried various options of disabling protection levels but not much seems to help.

product version 5.12.256249.2599
DB 16070

I have been happy with the comodo brand but hate to ditch it for another version due to resource usage.

Hello! Your system? When did you start approx experience such issue? Any ideas after what? Any other security software on your PC? Does it stay on 13-19% all the time?

Please make sure that there are no left overs of previously uninstalled security programs around. Not all uninstallers do a proper job. Left over applications, drivers or services can cause all sort of “interesting effects”.

Try using removal tools for those programs to remove them. Here is a list of removal tools for common av programs: ESET Knowledgebase .
