Ohh that is too bad :-[ I really want some one to fix comodo’s biggest issue
THE UPDATE !!! ???
the update of comodo just takes too much cpu and ram when it is updating the computer turns extremely slowwwwwww that is why comodo is not popular at least if you can’t fix this issue make it able to schedule by the user not update it randomly like this seriously comodo your antivirus should be so popular if not this issue so can you fix it ppppppppllllllllleeeeeeeaaaaaaassssssseeeeee ??? (:SAD)
ahmedahh is right. I wish it was just a bad morning. But it is a bad morning every day if I use my pc. The only alternative now is to get rid of comodo’s AV and use another free one or none. Also coffee will not help.
RAM, CPU and DISK I/O relating to the Antivirus updates, Whether it’s a first update or incremental updates, should be MUCH better in CIS v4. Comparing CIS v3 to CIS v4 (latest beta) you should be able to see the difference.
It’s slightly better but not that much. For people having PCs with 1 core CPUs and equipped with less than 2 GB of RAM that might be a problem. Since I upgraded my PC to better CPU with 3 cores, I barely notice CIS updates. But still I always disable auto-updating for Real Time Scanning. I doubt that there can be more improvements applied to current updating system with virus database size around 90MB. IMHO update scheduler would be the best workaround till CAV database will shrink to 50 MB or less.
Edit: The good thing though, which I forgot to mention, is that CISv4 doesn’t block launching of a new application while AV DB is updating (on the contrary to CISv3). :-TU :-TU
Connection speed isn’t the issue. It’s the way CAV needs to line up its incremental updates and merge them one at a time. This is a very disk I/O intensive process. On average for me with the machine being off overnight is in the neighborhood of 3 million reads/writes. That is pretty excessive to say the least…
