Comodo Cloud Antivirus Review

Comodo Cloud Antivirus

Comodo Cloud Antivirus is a free antivirus program with malware scanning, firewall protection and secure browser features. Comodo also provides paid versions such as Comodo Internet Security Pro with 24/7 technical support and virus warranty coverage; but their free offering still makes an excellent choice as many features can be found there as well.

Like any good antivirus program, Comodo Cloud Antivirus scans your computer for viruses and malware, then blocks or quarantines any suspicious files so they cannot harm the system. Depending on the type of virus detected, Comodo Cloud Antivirus may even remove them completely! Designed with new users in mind, its intuitive setup process and use are made as straightforward as possible with intuitive buttons and instructions for making setup easy; additional settings for antivirus and sandbox rules can also be easily customized within minutes.

Comodo Cloud Antivirus boasts several essential features, with auto-sandboxing being one of the key ones. This function runs unknown files in an isolated virtual environment that prevents them from accessing your real file system and registry. Furthermore, this software includes host intrusion prevention system (HIPS), which stops malicious files or programs from accessing critical system folders; though its malware scanner isn’t the best on the market — Avira’s free package offers much higher detection rates.

Comodo Cloud Antivirus offers many additional features beyond those already discussed, including a host control panel that enables you to change and modify firewall and other settings, and gaming mode – which mutes notifications while playing full-screen applications – though other similar programs such as Norton Gaming Mode provide greater system optimization features.

Comodo Cloud Antivirus advertises additional features like cloud storage and VPN on their website, but these seem to have been discontinued or no longer work properly. While I understand software being retired, Comodo should update their web pages more transparently to reflect this situation.

Comodo Cloud Antivirus offers many useful features, but isn’t the best antivirus software on the market. While its sandboxing and HIPS are excellent, some key features found elsewhere in other programs could prove more advantageous – should those extra features become important to you, consider switching over. Avira stands out from Comodo with its superior malware scanner and comprehensive security options, such as firewall and virtual desktop protection, pop-up blocking capabilities and ability to block sites displaying advertisements. Avira’s program is fast, has unique modern features like KillSwitch (acts as more detailed Task Manager), blocks popups and provides access control lists; plus has an elegant modern design.
