Makes a backup using Comodo Backup before uninstalling applications, drivers and services that can be easily restored.

Customized settings for backup

Real-time scan for malware infected setups (uses the malware detection engine from Comodo Cloud Scanner)
To ensure that your computer stays safe, every time a setup is started, it is also side-checked for malware using our cloud technology.

Quick folder access
From the user interface you can easily access the program’s installation folder.
Fast access to installed applications. Fast access to previously installed applications, as well as newly monitored applications.

Instant search
Live search through programs, drivers, windows features and windows updates.


Make a self extracting Installable Package from a monitored program
By using the information from the monitoring system, Comodo Programs Manager is able to combine into a self-extracting archive all the data needed for redeployment on a similar machine.

Active monitor
This is a monitoring engine that detects setups and actively keeps track of any changes made to the system. This is achieved in real-time and stores information from detected setups.
Remove locked files. Locked files are automatically removed at next Windows restart.

Update applications
Using our constantly updated database will keep your computer always up-to-date.
Added shell integration (for .exe & .msi files) for manual run & monitor. In the event a setup is not detected or when the automatic detections is off, you are able to right click a setup (.exe or .msi) and install & monitor it, thus making sure that it will be removed safely.

Improved the storage file system (disk-performance)
By modifying the internal storage system and storage search algorithms, increased disk-performance is achieved.

Increased efficiency of the monitoring system by ~30% (less CPU usage)
By improving the algorithms used, we make sure a false-positive ratio in the setup detection is kept to a bare minimum.

General tweaks, GUI improvements, fixes and optimizations.

New and improved graphical interface.

By completely removing unwanted applications, no leftovers will be present on your computer.

Removes partial uninstalled applications

GREAT!!! Thanks guys!!! :-TU :-TU :-TU

Another top quality product for freeeeeeeeee :smiley:

Thanks for the new release!

I have a question regarding the compression levels :stuck_out_tongue: :
None, Low, Medium, High, Highest, Maximum
Isn’t Highest and Maximum the same?
Shouldn’t it be something like High, Higher, Highest/Maximum ?

Thanks guys

Looks good.


Congrats to Andrei and his team - very nice app!! Well done guys!

Ewen :slight_smile:

Congrats to everyone who worked on this product. Looking forward to trying it. :-TU

Great program and great website!

Well done guys!


downloaded and installed will try out when i get some time (had a busy day) will try 2marrow


To be more precise, this is what every option stands for:

None = No compression
Low = Fastest Compression Level ( the best speed but with poor compression rate )
Medium = Fast Compression Level ( moderate speed with slightly better compression rate )
High = Normal Compression Level ( the best ration between compression rate & speed )
Highest = High Compression Level ( low speed with good compression algorithm )
Maximum = Highest Compression Level ( lowest speed with the best compression algorithm )

So Highest is not the same with Maximum, and of course as you probably already know the speed at which you make the backup is inversely proportional with the compression rate chosen.

I think the point the OP was trying to make was that MAXIMUM and HIGHEST carry equal meaning.
“Highest” means there is nothing higher. Maximum means there is nothing bigger. Different words but the same meaning.


“Very High” is, IMHO, a good compromise name for a setting that is in between HIGH and HIGHEST.

Ewen :slight_smile:

Yeah, that was exactly my point. Thank you

I asked this myself because I’m currently translating it into German.

Thanks guys exelent product :slight_smile:

I think CPM should not check for windows updates when program is started(that’s make the computer a bit slow). The scan should be started by the user.

I can’t say the same… I can’t even install it…

Sure… I can’t imagine why it is doing it right after booting/logon… Unbelievable…

New release, thread closed please look at build 30
