I have a minor problem when scanning Comodo AV on a laptop before I handed back his computer since I’ve removed AVG for him because he wanted Comodo CIS.
Why aren’t all the files being scanned because Comodo AV default setting at limit is 20MB, To increase this limit go to: Antivirus>Scanner Settings>Manual Scanning and set Do not scan files larger then XX MB to a higher number.
Also why is real time scanning default setting at limit is 20MB as well this should more or unlimited, now IF I wanted to scan the whole HD C:/, D:/ & E:/ when I click on scan now and select My Computer profile how to I tell to go Unlimited files being scanned, and why Comodo has to design this feature for what purposes I know a lot people like to have EVERY file to be scan small or large is to make sure there PC is clean.
20MB is a great size most executables and Almost all virus’s are less then 20MB
You may increase the Size as you wish; but I wouldn’t really recommend going over 100MB (Takes longer to scan if you have big files)
Malware and files in general are usually under 20MB. Don’t forget that all big exe consist of smaller files and I have rarely seen files go over 20MB. I have therefore put don’t scan files bigger than 30 MB.
Well the only problem I’m see on his laptop computer so far as I believe he doesn’t have an virus the nasty zombies, he does a lot of graphic work in Adobe Photoshop and believe me he got 6 different file sizes varies from 200mb up to 965mb their has to be away for Comodo AV to be able to scan these large files.
As he does a lot of graphic work in Adobe Photoshop, Paintshop etc etc and he does collect a lot of graphic from varies companies and these do come varies sizes, he also sometime he does get a large file up about 2gig of data in graphic work he really does wanted to used Comodo AV bout we’re both worried about Comodo AV can’t handle scanning very large file.
My Avast AV Free can handle any file sizes completely unlimited with no major slow down problem at all, I’m getting very worried about Comodo AV and their performance not been able to handle large this is very important. Believe me I’ve had a number virus in the pass when I worked in an Structural Engineering Design Firm using AutoCAD we had a dwg file size up to 900mb triggered to a virus inside a dwg, and it had to be deleted from server.
Edit:- These files could cost the companies million of dollars if these can’t be scanned because companies do not have the time for someone to redo their project work over and over again.
I’ve handed back his laptop computer this afternoon he was very please to see AVG gone out from his computer and very please to see Comodo AV altogether now Comodo AV/FW/D+/Sandbox/Cloud, since he been using Comodo free firewall I’ve been explaining to him for an hour how to used Comodo AV and he can also read the latest PDF manual file or go to the Comodo help through the internet.
His going to join in the Comodo Forum website soon as he was a bit concern I told him not to worried that I was a member too, so just give him time to allow him to Comodo the forum door I also told him that if he doesn’t feel comfortable using Comodo AV after 4 months of used and he agree to change to another AV.
Thanks for your help guys really appreciate because I’ve never used and operated Comodo AV before it was a little different experience fixing his laptop computer, since I’ve been using Avast AV for 8 years I might change over one day as I do love the Comodo FW :-TU :-TU :-TU :-TU
