So after all the hype I thought I would give CIS a try again. Tried it before (various versions) and did not really care for it. Please mods DO NOT come in here and shot down my post. 95% of antivirus programs contain a web shield such as Avast. Why hasn’t Comodo done the same? Yes you believe in prevention rather then detection. But isn’t stopping malware right when you click on a link considered “prevention”. I like being alerted right away rather then after a download has finished or an exe has been executed. May I have some feedback on this? Thanks.
BTW…Great FREE product. I do not believe in paying for any software when there are great free versions of everything you need.
Actually, with CIS I am not really worried about malware. If configured as I suggest here, no malware can harm my system anyway. Thus, my main concern is with phishing pages. Thus, my recommendation would be to either use K9, BitDefender TrafficLight, or OpenDNS.
Comodo don’t believe in the web-shield protection since it’s a waste of resources and it might slow down your browsing. Also with Avast web-shield you still have to ping the malware site in order to stop the malware coming into the system if I remember correctly.
CIS will protect you without any shields as it’s your OS what matters the most. Some will say that the Comodo can’t stop the exploits inside the browser due to not having any ‘online shield’ that might be so but the exploit will have to become a malware file and that’s where the Comodo will neutralize it.
So you still protected plus it won’t use the extra PC resources and slow down your browsing.
I used to believe in the web-shields myself until I learned better just like with everything in life.
They can claim what they want but the Bitdefender Trafficlight is not the same as Bitdefender AV. WOT has phishing protection! It is using OpenDNS phishtank! That might be so… But not in the Bitdefender Trafficlight…
