Now that Melih has punished his lowest level subordinate, I guess all is well.  Or did he get a name change and reincarnation like Toggie?  At least they don't need a big announcement or email campaign to help their users recover like a responsible company might do-nobody can ask for a refund.

Took a look at the other thread at http://forums.comodo.com/other_general_gui_etc_bugs/cmdagentexe_hogging_cpu-t46124.0.html .  LOL, I wonder how they expect most users to find it when they categorize it as a GUI bug, instead of an AV bug.

this forum has become ugly, just ugly...I never installed their AV, so I'm not concerned by the bug, but that's not the point; it's the atmosphere there, and that "this person has been dealt with accordingly"...even if needed...should never be said publicly, that's insane and cheap.

I meant Comodo forums if you had some doubts  ;D (I guess I said "this" because I've been familiar with it)

Logos,
Not a very nice answer. There are many people that don't do backups.
A software company does have a certain responsibility towards their customers.
Making sure that what they release as an update doesn't cause the destruction of their system or data
is one of them.
Had they (Comodo) properly tested the update prior to going live with it's release, her data loss would most likely never have occurred.
But then it's always easier to blame the customer for their ignorance then to accept the blame for something that with a little bit of care
could have been prevented.
