Well you can't say they are not trying to improve as you can see here http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/release_notes.html they have never changed this much so fast since well ever I mean 3 updates in a month is madness. Their AV is still erm ropey to put it nicely.

Thats because their beta testing is crap. They haven't fixed anything i've reported. They even haven't fixed things that their staff assured it'll end up in new upate. They also don't update beta often during testing to verify if bugs are fixed. So i stopped participating in their beta test. Why should i bother when they obviously don't even care.

Here with avast!, ALWIL team fixed everything i've ever reported in matter of hours and released new beta almost right away to check if everything is ok with that fix. After all major problems are correctly solved, they release the actual public final version. Hell, once we even tested something with vlk on sunday!
Thats what i call serious and professional work.

Comodo is a good team, try to do its best...
But I've gave up... too many hours spent trying to stabilize the computer.
Beta test, never more for them...

sorry guys, just trying to find out what those last posts are about; beta testing is closed, 3.8 is out, I've used it for a few days now and it's perfectly stable, on my PC, and in Win7. It seems some people posting here use to be very active Comodo forums members...I haven't been around on the forum (Comodo) during that last beta testing phase, but I've been in the past, and quite frankly enjoyed it. Beta is beta, expect bugs etc...well you know the story, nothing unusual...But again, how could a supposedly so unstable beta that was available still a few weeks ago turn out to become such a stable release, and I'm using it on an OS that is not supported, NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER.

 I've been an Avast user for a while as well, I use both programs (not the AV component of CIS obviously): just the title of that thread doesn't make any sense: Avast vs CIS  ??? ??? ??? CIS does things that Avast doesn't and vice versa. FYI, I've been and still am a big supporter of Avast WebShield, and made it clear more than once @ Comodo, as well as I'll make clear here and now that CIS (again, not the AV part  ;D) is a bloody amazing Firewall/HIPS, and STABLE, for the release version.

 edit:I can understand some kind of (moderate) flaming between online armor users and CIS users, but not between Avast and Comodo  ;)

I updated to the latest version of CIS (I don't run the AV - prefer Avast!) and there was only 1 problem: I exported my configurations and, from Comodo's forums, had learned that it's best to import the Configs. via 'Import as' and don't import the one for which the profile is currently active and what did CIS do? - damned well updated and kept all my Configs!
Since then it's been running with no problems at all - killjoys!

It makes perfect sense even if I do say so myself CIS has a anti virus component and Avast is a AV. So I or we are talking about both AVs and how they differ and how they are the same. If you don't have the AV part of CIS then what you really have is the Comodo firwall not CIS really.

The problem is that Comodo, from time to time, brings trouble with avast, with Windows Updates, with connection...

You must be kidding, forgot the HIPS (aka Def+)...the AV component was added lately. It's extremely minor in the suite, and Comodo always acknowledged their AV couldn't match stuff like AVG etc...for now (and I don't believe it ever will honestly). If you want to compare CIS to anything, compare it to Online Armor for instance, but not to an Antivirus for Christ's sake, it doesn't make any blody sense.For me Comodo AV solutions are not really existent and don't deserve a topic  ;)

I've had this during beta testing phases f CFP2 and 3, could solve WinUpdate issues by myself (settings for a couple of *.exe). As to Avast, I never had any conflict between the two.

So what you are saying is don't compare it to other AV's because it is not a AV. Well who says it is not a AV? *Checks CIS.* Yep it sure looks and scans like a AV to me and has heuristics like most other AV's so after all that what should it be called then?

I was not talking about Defence + so you telling me not to talk about it is a bit weird to say the least anyway so what you are saying is don't compare it to other AV's because it is not a AV.

Hmmmmm ok. B.T.W. I am not a Comodo fanboy but for you to say it's not a AV is well................ Different. You are right in one thing the AV is so poor (and full of FP's) that it is almost useless.
