Thanks for the new release. :-TU

Can you guys please prepare a video on infected machine? People can see CHC on action, just my 2 cents.

I just saw “100% Clean” result on my PC :P0l

False Positive report sent to ClamAV: chc64.exe - Jotti's malware scan

Thanks for reporting FP yigido, we will also follow up.
Regarding video, yes, we will put on portal.

Good tool. I’m sure many users will find it useful.

For me, when I run it and click accept to the ToS, it just closes/crashes.

Tbh, very questionable direction from COMODO.
You have already Cleaning Essentials. Very strong tool, which barely updated, but still very powerful. Why instead of improving CCE to create another 100th browser cleaner, which won’t clean most of possible problems, because they won’t use such simple attack mechanisms?

A manager who said to create Dragon browser and this tool instead of focusing on support and improvement and bug-fixing of previously released top level products just destroys COMODO company from inside.

Is this an abandoned product? The DL link DLs what appears to be version 1.0. 1.0 after 3 years.

Does not work

I get the same message!

yes, mensage is show in comodo hijack cleaner and close…
