Closest thing that Avast! publishes as viruses are added is at http://www.avast.com/eng/vps_history.html .  With generic signatures and algorithmic analysis hard to do a real count.  But there is a section on viruses that is accessible from the main Avast! page for those who are interested in the main threats and those being added.  And a forum here on viruses and worms for keeping up with the status of the latest hot threats.  And you can always ask and get a straight answer.  :)

https://forums.comodo.com/comodo_boclean_antimalware/boclean_to_be_discontinued-t34653.0.html;msg249392;boardseen#new likewise the conodo memory firewall has now been discontinued for the same reason. If it was not such a joke I would be smiling. :-[

Comodo trys to give you much more than you want in the latest updates as far as I can tell. I sent them an email saying if they don't keep CFP separate I will use another program.

Have been using Avast Home for about 2 years and am pretty satisfied with it. Have also heard not good stuff about Comodo's AV and want to stay away from it.

The AV (CIS) is full of FPs well maybe not full but it pulls up a file of mine as a virus and even when set to ignore, when you do another scan it still flags it up. My file is clean as I have checked it on VirusTotal and if you wanna laugh even Comodo (on VirusTotal) says it's clean it's the heuristics that Comodo has built in to their AV that is flagging it up.

CIS doesn't have any heuristics yet. It only flags packers as malware.
If it's packed by Armadillo, it'll flag it as malware. If it's PEShield, it'll flag it. If it's MEW, it'll flag it, if it's Yoda Cryptor/Protector, it'll flag it.
Useless if you ask me but Comodo team disagree with me... oh well.

comodo AV is junk, it has a lot of false positive and it miss a lot of well known virus to detect... I would not use it, never, comodo is not bad just as a free firewall...
For example it detect my Fingerprint software as a known Trojan and many infected keygens that I've downloaded from Internet as clean files.

Yes, there is a lot of room for improvement on Comodo AV... but for false positives and lack of detection we can't say it's a junk... let's be fair. It's weak, but not a junk.

Agreed, so I installed CIS, including the AV, then just disabled the AV - simple.

Out of curiosity I ran CAVS and Avast! together for a couple of days: had no obvious conflict but got fed up of CAVS popping up with FPs, so turned it off again.

Giraffe, disable is not enough, sooner or later you'll have trouble with two antivirus at the same time.
I suggest you uninstall the AV part of Comodo.
