Must just come here for some adult company and to get away from the fanboys.  ;)  Don't understand the numbers, though, with all of the FPs reported.  And with their own files against their own database why don't they score 100%?  But they are making progress, and say that someday all will be revealed in the standard tests.  In the meantime, pay careful attention to your HIPS.  :)  In reality, most people rarely see malware in the wild.  And if the FPs are recoverable, not a big deal.  But based on comparing their Forum head count to their claimed installed base, there must be a lot of confused ex-users out there already.  So be cautious of the results, verify independently with sites like Virus Total, run Behavior/Removal programs like SAS and MBAM regularly.  And, BTW,  repeating Melihgalomania here is not really useful to anyone. ;)

Apart from possible entertainment value  ;)



Here is your answer right from the err horses mouth.

But..guys.. we are the new kid on the block... just give us some time.. we only started having some fun Wink

Meanwhile at a boat accessories manufactuer:

But..guys..  your boat was sinking and you discovered that our bailing bucket's got a few holes in it..  we are the new kid on the block... just give us some time.. we only started having some fun

Safety fence supplier:

So you put our fence around your pool to make it safe for your kids.. you still have some left.. just give us some time..

after testing numerous times..my results..and I am no noob to all this.

Avast:
slows enitre operating system (using xp) starup speed is reduced by over 50%
protects well against viruses..but scans are slow..and sumtimes freeze.
it looks and sounds like crap.alert alert like your pc will explode...NOT neccasery
scan with heur level at the highest and your pc locks up.left for 9 hours...still neva completed jus froze

Comodo:
are the way to future  pc protection
does not mess with pc speeds in any way
protects against viruses as well as avast(comodo latest version..and i dnt giv a ***k about statistics this is from user exp.)scans are also quite slow.
it looks and feels professional..
heur are hyper sensitive if required.and never lock up your system.

I would go with comodo 100% of the way..they offer complete computer protection and maintenece utilities at an UNBEATABLE level for FREE
also the comodo firewall is one the most powerful availible for consumers.to be honest i cant think of any other that stands up to it.

its only a debate...

Thats a rather bold statement. Until i see some half decent results of Comodo on AV-Comparatives, all i have is word from Melih and bunch of fanboys from their forums. And most of them are really hardcore fanboys...

Well, what are you using as firewall...? Comodo could have a bad interaction with avast.

protects well against viruses..but scans are slow..and sumtimes freeze.
No. Scan speed has getting better (still room for improvement) and does not freeze in normal operation, at least, most users.

it looks and sounds like crap.alert alert like your pc will explode...NOT neccasery
Configure it. avast is one of the most configurable antivirus round.

scan with heur level at the highest and your pc locks up.left for 9 hours...still neva completed jus froze
Depends on your system, RAM, CPU, archive files, etc. etc.

Comodo:
are the way to future  pc protection
On contrary, it messed my Vista installation. It was a good firewall, but started to be bloated and somehow buggy with Defense+.

protects against viruses
A kind of joke from you... see any comparison test...

Sorry, nobody likes Comodo fan boys... I used Comodo, but I'm not a fan boy of avast or Comodo.

Of course not!! Comodo is faith based security!
You really do not thank clicking 30 or 40 pop-up's per hour that are about as clear as an old Simon and Garfunkel song,does not slow down the use of your machine?

If Avast is for kids,Comodo is for acolytes and "experts".
The only effective parts of the suite are the firewall and defence+
Defence+ requires you be "HIPS Foo Master" or really masochistic,and Online
Armour is at least as effective,and much more user friendly.

As for CAV,well even the Inter Sanctum Faithfull admit it is(to be charitable)
weak.

If you like Comodo,that is fine,but really I would avoid comparisons.
You come out on the bottom every time.

Thank you Deleon78 for providing a glimpse of 'Planet Comodo'.

You should not be surprised if satisfied users of avast!, AVG, Avira, Dr Web, Kaspersky, McAfee, NOD, Norton, PC Tools, etc, on this planet, have experienced Comodo products in ways which are at variance with the utopia you describe.

Just a reminder that a "debate" usually presupposes substantial and reasonable arguments.
"Comodo are the way to future PC protection", "does not mess with pc speeds in any way" and the the sage-like pronouncement that "avast is for amatuers/and(sic) kids" do indeed remind me of my school days (which of course, being an avast! user, was only yesterday ;D), but of the playground, rather than the debating room.

I think everyone is welcome to their opinion, I am now using comodo both av and firewall and okay with it, no problems but I had avast for a few years with only minors but I won't trash it and before I found avast, nod32 was my choice. My internet provider offers mcafee suite for it user free but I chose not to use it, I don't feel that it was right for anyone to come another forum and blast that product.
