There’s a very common and general myth that FREE anti virus solutions are not that effective than the paid ones. With Comodo’s proprietary defense+ technology almost all unknown files are distinguished as threats which make this anti virus more reliable and secured which means that it can replace the anti virus biggies like Mac Afee or even Norton.
This anti virus also scans zipped files easily where viruses are most often hidden and also with Comodo’s latest version you can also view behavior analysis of the unrecognized files which makes Comodo’s offering at par with other leading anti virus softwares. Like other anti virus suites this anti virus too comes with Schedule scan but the specialty is that this comes up with cloud based anti virus scanning.
With many highlight features like default deny protection, auto sandbox technology wherein it ensures viruses and other malicious malware software are isolated from rest of the computer. With advanced functions like personalized protection and spy ware scanning it even leaves behind the offerings provided by paid anti viruses. The user interface of Comodo Anti virus is very easy to use and also provides real time updates for updating virus definitions.
I personally used this software where I found that it took bit more time than Kasper sky anti virus which I used previously and also compared to Kasper sky the user interface is very simple. At times Kasper sky used to slow down my system performance, but this was not the experience with Comodo as system was behaving as fast as it was without an anti virus. With many recognitions from cnet and also from PC tools this anti virus is highly recommended for home users though it’s not that effective for business institutions. The two main advantages which I have noticed is that scanning is being done on zonal basis and also scans depending upon the level of security required the files are being scanned.
