Update: check out the new Comodo Free Antivirus 2012.
The last program that I’m testing in this year’s series about free antivirus products comes from Comodo.
Comodo offer a few different such products which are currently priced at $49.99, $29.99 and nothing.
It is obviously the latter that I am looking at today.
Comodo Free Antivirus
The free antivirus program offers standard protection, as you would expect, but does not come with a firewall or with any kind of live support like the paid versions do.
When you download Comodo free antivirus you have to agree to their licensing terms.
After that you have the option of supplying your email address so that they can keep in touch with you.
Personally I skipped that offer.
Next up, the program started to download, all 147MB of it!
After downloading about 2MB of files I was presented with the following message –
Such a message seems to imply an internet connection problem so I duly checked that I had a good connection.
Ok, a glitch thinks I, so I attempted to retry.
And a few more times.
Hmmmmm….. I had a good connection and could open up any other website I tried.
If anyone from Comodo reads this perhaps they could drop a comment to explain what the issue might be as, to my mind, it certainly doesn’t appear to be my end.
All things considered, I cannot offer any kind of opinion on Comodo antivirus as I couldn’t get it working.
