I tried the latest CIS (again) a couple of months ago just because 'Tech' was talking about it. It was so good at finding malware... it blocked over 100 safe files! ???
Sorry. But I think I've only advocated for better protection by the so-called "deny all" policy from Comodo.
After all, the Behavior Shield of version 5.1 (passive) and 6 (active) will try to fill this feature.
The clean files blocked seem to be blocked by the autosandbox and not by the antivirus.

No need to apologize Tech. I did it for the adventure! ;D

Off Topic... but, speaking of poles.

Having been invited to visit the Olympic venue in Sydney in 2000, as I walked through the "Athletes Village" a man dressed in a lycra bodysuit and carrying a long pole walked towards me. "Are you a pole vaulter?" I asked.
"No. I'm German." he said, "But how did you know my name is Walter?"

I use the Comodo Firewall but not the Defense+. Defense+ requires informed decisions and sometimes even informed decisions are not enough to make the right choice. I think  Melih's original premise was to make anti-virus obsolete. I gave it a try, but the software was forever in "school" and became so annoying "learning" that I disabled it.

It has always been my policy never to use software that combines anti-virus and firewall together for the reason that it's very easy for hackers to disable both at the same time. The best firewall in the world in my opinion used to be AtGuard (I miss it terribly and was begging the authors along with other users to make it XP compatible). It was straight forward and virtually idiot proof.

Since I'm not up to 20:

Hmmm Xeolyte ?

If i am reading your system specs correctly, you have 8gb of ram right ? Why run 32bit OSes on that system then ? Just wondering...

All these videos are good for is a good laugh. These guys have no freaking idea what they're doing. The guy in the first video (with the 10,000 malware) couldn't figure out why he was having trouble moving all those files to the chest. Maybe it was because the chest was full?? Maybe the next time you're going to test THAT many files, You might want to increase the amount of space the chest can use.




I'll bite also.

I tried CIS 5. Is good, but its false positives are many. Its sandbox is too intrusive, they need to add more trusted signatures to their whitelist and improved it. Really It caused me headache, i chose NOT sandbox again, and it continued sandboxing tha same aplication. The only thing that make its protection good is the Defense+.

avast! have better virus database than Comodo.

Edit: I still prefer avast!
