Do You Scan Files with Comodo?


I’m a little confused about Comodo’s anti-malware feature. Most anti-malware programs, such as Malwarebytes or Spyware Terminator, let you scan files for malicious or suspicious code. They have options in Windows Explorer’s right-click context menus.

I see no such thing in Comodo. Am I missing something? Or does Comodo only block malware from entering your computer?

If there is a scan option, where is it, and can it be scheduled? Thank you. Jd

Hello Jd

Yes If you have The Antivirus Component Installed,
You may open CIS > AntiVirus

There you should “Run A Scan” / Scan Settings and All other sorts of options

You could schedule it in “Scan Settings” I believe

Was this any help to you?

Hi, thanks for replying.

Well…I already have an anti-virus program on my computer, so I didn’t plan on installing a second.

I was under the impression that the anti-malware tool was separate from the anti-virus feature. Is that correct or incorrect?


I believe you’re using Comodo BoClean?

You can uninstall that tool, it’s not supported anymore. To explain what it did : BoClean watched your memory, when malware runs, it has to go naked into the memory, boclean had a nice shot to snap it then.

Comodo BoClean is now integrated into Comodo Internet Security, the standalone versie has now become outdated.

Best regards,

Hi Guys,

Hi jdanniel,

The original poster asked

Most anti-malware programs … let you scan files for malicious or suspicious code. They have options in Windows Explorer’s right-click context menus.
about Shell Extension (Explorer) integration as far as I understand the question - the right-click thingie option that all AVs have.

Since I don’t use Comodo AV I cannot answer the question, at the same time I’m kinda interested myself and cannot get the responses (unless I’m missing something, please correct me…)

There is “scheduled scan”/ there is non-existing any more BOClean… and so on,

… but is there Shell Extension implemented?

Can user Right-Click and scan any given folder or file?

Thanks in advance



basically all contemporary Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware solutions do have anti-malware; anti -virus; anti-spyware; etc. integrated because you cannot really draw the line (distinguish) and conclude - “that” is a malware … but “this” is a virus…
You may get for example a rogue antivirus downloaded and installed … which will bring the spyware… then the trojan… later into your PC and the latter will eventually will download & install a rootkit…

There is a shell extension.

I’m assuming there is not a context menu option unless the anti-virus tool is installed. Is that correct?

Yes thats correct

Hi Guys,

Eric & Jacob, thanks for clarifying that.
