I have a PC in my neighbor’s house, which does not have an internet connection. I removed AVAST and installed Comodo Antivirus for him, but I could not get it to update.
I followed the forum articles showing how to update Comodo Antivirus offline by downloading bases.cav, starting PC in safe mode and manually overwriting bases.cav file (looks like hack to me though).
Although the bases are updated (I have checked with some known virus samples), the main window is still red, showing that CAV is not up to date and prompts to update it. It does not even show the date of the update file (bases.cav) that I have manually put in the program files folder.
This makes the whole thing worse and irritating.
Can’t we have properly working Comodo Antivirus without a live internet connection?
Thanks I have always found this useful in the past with different AV’s, if you have problems updating with a option like this you can manually download the file and updated it, which can and does solve temporary update problems.
