Comodo Free Antivirus has no impressive protection results, to claim high-class protection power. However, AV-Test Lab has tested the Comodo Internet Security Premium and the result is amazing, trustworthy.
Over a few months, test results are quite impressive and have highlighted some major issues. In 2016, the test results proved that the security can protect the machine 95% from virus, while, in the next year the percentage dropped surprisingly.
In addition, 2018 tests are saying it is efficient in taking care of possible malware attacks and gives 100% malware protection to PCs. The results are may be confusing for the users, however, it will not be a loss, if you install it and enjoy the protection, as it is free to use.
Installation and Support
The Comodo Antivirus Free is easy to download from web. According to the Yahoo! Users, the installing procedure was not swift as it was in chrome. Do not let the software to change the default browser setting, as it does not have any precise support for the browser and its security setting. Comodo has more components to give the user the best experience with it, like- Comodo’s Dragon Browser to set up the software easily. The setup process takes a little longer than usual and the post-installation scan was also far away from a quick speedy process.
For the free version, they don’t have any technical service. You can go through the FAQs section on their website to solve your queries.
It has a pretty interface to attract more users. You can use the software with the latest appearance or the previous look, according to your preference. Just go to the setting option and select the former appearance of the security option to enjoy the older look. If you are already a Comodo user or love the software, then you will surely love the classic theme rather than the modern one.
The classic theme (Lycia theme) is light and charming. The long panel at the left side of the display looks cool with the combination of green colour when you are protected. This happy look turns into red to alert your virus attacks. There is a rectangular panel, which occupies most of the window. You can easily scan the machine from this panel, check updates, use the sandbox and unblock the application, which is blocked by Comodo’s components. You may love the Arcadia theme, which is quite similar to the Lycia.
It has some amazing protection features, however, all these features need a skilled person to set up. If you are a novice person, then you will not be able to enjoy these features. This option can be taken as a basic protector.
