Comodo decides to introduce its antivirus software with the winning award Firewall Pro. The result of this combination is a powerful security suite, offered for free completely. We tested a lot of antivirus software for our reviews and we consider Comodo Antivirus with Firewall a very good piece of security software.
You can download the installation kit directly from Comodo website, for free. The installation kit has medium dimensions and the process of installation is simple and easy to perform. You must be a little bit careful because the installer asks you if you want to install additional features like Ask browser toolbar, for example. After completing the installation process, the computer must be restarted to finish the installation.
Comodo changes the virus engine architecture and the management of consuming resources was very much improved. Almost all problems of the past versions are eliminated. The software is very easy to use and both interfaces (for beginners and advanced computer users) are very simple to use. Comodo Free Antivirus with Firewall runs very silent in the computer background. This is a simple and efficient free antivirus software with a good level of protection.
Because the firewall is included in the package, you will have anti-hacker protection for your computer, too. And all these features and capabilities are provided for free. The Firewall is one of the best firewalls on the market compared to paid firewalls. If the computer is connected to the Internet, the firewall is able to learn how to defend from the hackers’ attacks.
The menu offers good capabilities and we loved very much the Defense+ panel found in the Comodo menu. This menu is able to let you block the files from modifications and offer Registry Key protection.
The updater of Comodo Antivirus with Firewall works very well in the background without any computer freezing. You can setup the updater on manual mode but it’s better to keep the software on the automatic mode.
Comodo is effective against malware infections too, with Default Deny Protection System which prevents computer malware infections. In the latest version of Comodo Free Edition there is also included the DNS protection. This feature protects you against access of unwanted dangerous websites.
For the 2011 review, Comodo Antivirus with Firewall gains the second position in our top ten of the best free antivirus software. You can download and use for free this software for your antivirus and anti-hacker protection.
