Comodo STILL supporting the criminal fraternity (the bad guys)
 
From the desk of when will they learn, comes yet more evidence from Mike Burgess, of Comodo's involvement, and willing involvement given their lack of action to prevent such, in the support of the criminal networks of the interwebs.

Here again we find another bogus Antispyware program that does nothing but take your money ... with a little help from Comodo

  HopSurf is a Comodo product.

Ask.com and DNS Advantage are not.

I knew there was a reason for not installing the Comodo Dragon on my system.  ;D ;D

I never had any luck with Comodo so it's never found a permanebt home on any of my computers.

Well, I like and respect their firewall. I think in time there AV will be very good too.It will be interesting to see some results,such as AV comparatives.As for the toolbar, is it not optional ? As in a lot of other products ( Ccleaner,Foxit etc )
I think some people have it in for Comodo,full stop.
If you don't like it , don't install it. Simple

Well, seems that the days we suggest (and trust) Comodo are going to end...

For a second lets leave Ask! and Comodo out of the picture.
Ccleaner on its normal install,updated through the program,
from Filehippo,does install the Yahoo toolbar,default checked.
Now,suppose people began to complain about this,and the CEO of
Piriform,rides in on a pale horse,and proclaims:
"We have heard your cries! No longer will we even offer the Yahoo
toolbar! Rather,we have designed,in-house, a wonderful little utility
that will check for old drivers,system wide,and alert you!
It will also be default install,and will come with a search function!!
Yahoo,only of course!"
Isn't that the real purpose of toolbars? To promote use of their search engine?


Comodo has chosen to stay in bed with Ask!,and
the disingenuous way they maintained their affiliation, is an insult to
the intelligence of those who had a problem with it  from the start.
Hell,they could have at least foisted something like the driver checker
utility I made up,that would have at least related to system maintenance,
if not to security.
