I was under the impression that Comodo Firewall Only would not have any “real-time” CPU consuming Anti-Virus protection …as I don’t need one, yet when I ran a known possibly infected/FP product inside of Sandboxie - Comodo was all over it saying it detected a Threat via cloud and wanted to know if I wanted someone from Geek Buddy to assist in removal, I knew the file was iffy hence me running it in Sandboxie to test in the first place, this has indicated to me that Comodo Firewall actually DOES have real-time Anti-Virus built in whether you chose the Firewall on its own (as I did) or not? - I even have HIPS turned off
here we can see I only have Firewall enabled:
I’m not after a “well you should really have an Anti-Virus” type of response or any other security advice - I know exactly what I’am doing and don’t need one, I’ve not been infected in 5 years of not using one, I run regular scans with Kaspersky, Emsisoft, MalwareBytes, TDDSKiller, SuperAntiSpyware etc just to be sure - I just use a 2 way firewall (incase one slips through the net and tries to call home) and WinPatrol for startup location monitoring (which all malware try to do) - I don’t want my comodo (or any firewall) acting as an Anti-Virus…its not what I signed up for.
can anyone explain why this message popped up when perhaps it shouldn’t have? (as I chose NOT to have the AV component installed)
I thought it was sus when it has “updates” and has a “scan” option but thought that this maybe just on-demand scanning
