Installed newest version and so far so good but I haven’t yet installed AVAST again (removed before installation of latest Comodo because of previous compatibility problems).
The interface, whilst less easy to use I will surely get used to. However, there are a few things that fraggle me a little. The program comes with numerous new add-ons, some of which I don’t really want but it gave no option on whether to install them or not so I have disabled Geek buddy from start-up in Windows services and configuration. Not sure if there is another way?
Widgets (disabled via Comodo options), Comodo Dragon (unistalled via its own uninstaller), ComodoLivepcsupport (disabled via windows services)
It all seems rather an un-elegant and complex way of managing this new version! - Is there another way??
Also, there are things I can’t seem to disable, these are; Anti-Error and Shared Space, both of which also have desktop icons (easy to remove but I don’t want them to run in the background).
See it is: In addition you should select the small option near the bottom of the window that says “Customize Installer”. This will give you the option to choose which components, and additional programs, you would like to install. You may wish to consider leaving the option to install Comodo …
The Add & Remove Components setup wizard will only show the AV and FW after install.
Both Dragon and GeekBuddy can be uninstalled through Windows Programs & Features if they are not required.
Removing GeekBuddy will also remove the AntiError startup entry and the LiveSupport service.
The options are available as said above, optional during install. (Screenshots) Installation Help
Btw, the customized installation botton is not well underlined, this is true, and probably it’s a little stratagem to have more geekbuddies/Dragons installed…nothing bad, ovviously. They have to advertize their products.
AntiError is a component of GeekBuddy automatically checking the efficiency of the system.
If issues are found but not easily rectified, you will then be presented with an option to contact the GeekBuddy services. Starting and Using AntiError Help
This ongoing problem could be alleviated if the devs would just make two buttons, the same size and shape. One for Full Installation and one for Custom Installation! Having the Customize Installer link smaller and below the big install button is a little sneaky. :-\
