Infact, thats what I expect from an anti-virus software. Reply Tina Wilkerson September 27, 2012 at 9:08 pm Thanks for the Comodo info. Specifically AVG stands out here as being very, very hard to get rid of. you can stop acting all butt hurt now. Source

I've been with computers for about 3 years now, and I've been using Comodo for most of the time without any issues at all.
Avira blew away the competition in our performance tests. THE two keys are detection accuracy and minimal performance hit in the background -- I don't much care how pretty the GUI is vs. Happy with that. :) Reply Matt Smith October 2, 2012 at 7:10 pm Hopefully they'll do a better job of keeping it updated with the latest anti-virus definitions. A lot of these components are handicapped, however, and direct you to buy one of AVG’s paid solutions.

Alternatively you can click the gear button on the main menu, but this opens up another menu that declares you must be in “expert mode” to change settings.

Reply Andrea Kosteli? It is annoying indeed to configure the firewall and the AV to allow access to the network/execute safely,but once you are done with that,you can forget about your PC's security,they are ZoneAlarm cleans and organizes the data on the PC. have a peek here Some of the cleanliness is due to a lack of features, however.
As of now, I'm downloading the free version of Comodo (some of the comments says it's good). It had just arrived, and we purchased a computer with it so that we could have easy access to this new-fangled thing called “the Internet.” At... Did doing so impact performance?
Any of these will be a better choice than Microsoft Security Essentials 4.0, especially if you need help with an existing malware problem. files it downloads them all then continues to download I dont' know what? I don't think you can look at security anymore and be satisfied with just a virus scanner. A product that passes a test by AV-Comparatives.org receives a STANDARD rating.
Works well with people who don't totally understand but does give some protection. But I will certainly think about Avira and Avast for any new computer I get!
