Comodo Antivirus

Comodo Antivirus provides reliable protection for your daily use preventing viruses and malware. Thanks to the fast cloud-based scanning, Comodo doesn’t impact your PC’s performance and efficiency. This free antivirus detects suspicious hidden files and protects all your devices, easily scans any drive or file, get in-depth reports on viral activity and identify suspicious files, with is just a tad less informative interface than competitors.

Comodo Antivirus for Windows offers a full-time protection and basic features we can compare to freeware competitors: firewall protection, a Game Mode – it suppresses operations that could interfere with a user’s gaming experience such as alerts, virus database updates or scheduled scans, a Comodo Dragon secure Web browser known as “a faster, more stable version of Chrome“, the drag-and-drop submission of suspicious apps for analysis and a useful desktop widget that includes common-task icons to launch tasks, popular browsers, and social media sites.

This free Windows antivirus can recognize typical aggressive behavior: after detecting a suspicious file, it will be immediately placed in “Antivirus Jail” waiting for the trial. If it’s a confirmed virus, Comodo will delete it. Users can submit any files look suspicious to the Safe List and get immediate feedback from experts. There’s also a sandbox: a virtual operating environment for untrusted programs isolating the virus and malicious files from the rest of your computer. It’s possible to customize the protection level and to schedule automatic scans. Antivirus’ main layout is similar to other free antivirus tools, but setting things up is a little more tricky for novice users.

You can profit from automatic updates for the most current virus protection. No annoying pop-ups or false alarms: Comodo Antivirus is unobtrusive. Installing Comodo Antivirus you can enable the cloud-based analysis of suspicious programs and Comodo’s Secure DNS Server option for free to secure your PC against a malware-hosting website. Unfortunately, this tool is not very effective against newly reported URLs.

Comodo Antivirus is free. However, you have to pay for a live technical help, but the free Online Help options include a comprehensive manual and searchable forums.

Taking about system requirements, Comodo Antivirus works well on Windows XP S2 and higher.


Comodo Antivirus works properly paired with other antivirus solutions, offers a good protection and includes advanced features – maybe too advanced for common users. It’s free so it’s worth a try.
