Regardless of what software you choose as your primary AV, it is always a goos idea to have a second one installed, but not active. This second AV can be used to verify FPs and as a fail-safe to the primary one.
in my view, i would always suggest to use avira antivirus as guard, instead of comodo antivirus. there is no argument against this,
As soon as someone says “there is no argument against this”, your fanatic radar should light up. There are always arguments. There are always alternatives. Unless you work in marketing or advertising, nothing is absolute, nothing is ultimate.
but there are some arguments against cis antivirus (for example, imagine you have a virus in an archive, cis will not tell you until you open that archive).
So what? Really. So what?? All malware is a bunch of code and code is only effective when executed in memory, regardless of whether is was stored on your hard disk on on a web server or on a flash drive. Until it is executed, it is just a bunch of 0’s and 1’s. Only when it is executed does it have the potential for harm, and it is at this point that CIS will intercept it.
Please note that I said CIS will intercept, not the Comodo AV will intercept it. Comodo’s AV works best in conjunction with Defense+. It’s good on it’s own, but it is at it’s best when used in conjunction with D+.
and in the tests, when theres said: detected 75%..... imagine how much is 25% when there are 100000s of viruses are tested.
even when the result is 99%, its still 1000 viruses that arent detected!
combine this with the amount of false positives....
thats why i returned after tests with cis antivirus to avira free personal edition.
Asking a question like “How good is CIS?” on a Comodo forum is bound to elicit either of two typical responses - “CIS is the best thing since sliced bread” and “CIS is rubbish - its not certified - use X, Y or Z”.
The best advice I can offer is to test several alternatives thoroughly on your systems. If you find one you like, feel comfortable with the level of protection it offers, understand its config and options, then that’s the one for you.
