Posted By: The Kp - 22:04:00

Award-winning Comodo Firewall and Antivirus protection for PCs

COMODO Internet Security Premium is an
antivirus system that aims to protect your system, files and folders  against any online threats.

The software supports several languages, and you can choose one at the beginning of the installation.

Internet Security Premium offers to change your DNS servers to COMODO
SecureDNS servers (it has a description), and to enable "Cloud Based
Behavior Analysis" of unrecognized programs by submitting them to

When the program automatically started, we were welcomed
by three windows. In one, COMODO looked for updates, another one
informed us of how the firewall had detected a new private network that
our PC was about to join, and another one which is the software's

Updating takes several minutes, after which COMODO
runs an automatic scan on your computer (which takes a really long time,
but it's thorough).

The GUI is very eye-catching and simple to follow.

COMODO seems to have a lot of features for each main function, but they are well organized.

antivirus section lets you run or schedule a scan (a full scan, on
critical areas, or a spyware scan), configure the scanner settings, view
antivirus events and quarantined items, but also submit suspicious
files to COMODO to be further analyzed.

The firewall lets you
view firewall events and alerts that were possibly triggered by attacks
on the computer, define a new trusted or blocked application, create a
set of global firewall rules, and configure various firewall options.

has some interesting features, such as running a program in the Sandbox
(a "safe haven" for untrusted, restricted, limited or partially limited
applications), adding or removing files to and from your local safe
executable database, and viewing unrecognized files (which are
automatically placed in the Sandbox until further notice).

enough, COMODO uses very little CPU and memory resources while scanning
is active. But other system applications run slower.

To sum
things up, COMODO Internet Security Premium is a brilliant security
software, but that's only our opinion. You have to test it for yourself.
And we can't believe it's free.
