Q: Avast Internet Security 2016 VS Avira Free + Comodo Firewall

Hi,

I want change my computer protection.

I want install Avast or Avira. But Avira doesn't have a firewall, so I want install avira + comodo firewall.

Which would be better for zero day malware protection and signatures: Avast Internet Security 2016 Or Avira+ Comodo firewall

RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: Avast Internet Security 2016 VS Avira Free + Comodo Firewall

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Avast Internet Security 2016 VS Avira Free + Comodo Firewall

Avira + Comodo firewall is almost unbreakable. Best signatures and best proactive for zero day malwares.

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire One netbook running Windows 7 Home Premium, and I need protection. It only has 1GB of RAM, so would I get Avast! free 5.1 or Comodo internet security 5.0? I was thinking of maybe MSE 2.0, but heard it is not RAM friendly.

A:Avast! Free 5.1 final vs Comodo Internet security 5.0

I wouldnt use Comodo AV since its hasnt been tested and it has an okay detection. The backbone of the whole suite of comodo is the D+ which is a HIPS.

Why not use Avast Free + Comodo FW w/ D+? You get a very good AV and an excellent firewall+hips program.

Hello people! I currently using AVG IS but i decided to combine 2 engines for the best protection possible(also free for the public). Im very satisfied about AVG detection but why not testing out a new security for my pc. So PANDA AV is light and good and COMODO FW is pretty damn good actually. Through the many testings that i have dove it appears that both the AV and COMODO with everything turned ON works perfectly fine.What do u think about that combination of products?

I have always used Avast and Comodo as my AV/Firewall combination. I find it to be very useful, and although Comodo provides many annoying popups, they are useful and informational (I would consider myself a competent computer user, though no expert).

Recently, I just wanted to see how good my combination was and if there was a better one. I found topics that said of how Avast's web shield completely bypasssed Comodo's rules. I tested this:

1) Block chrome.exe in Comodo completely
2) Check that both Comodo and Avast are updated, and Avast web shield ON
3) Open Chrome and see what happens

Results: At first I thought it was fine, google.com was blocked. Then I tried clicking on bookmarks. yahoo.com would open, youtube.com would open, etc. I was shocked to find that Comodo was letting these websites open even though chrome.exe was blocked!

After doing some more research, and realizing that this was a big problem, and that many solutions did not work, with avast being blamed or comodo being outdated, or even that Win 7 64 bit was limiting comodo, I tested it again with web shield OFF.

I repeated the process of blocking chrome and opened google.com and other websites. This time all the websites were blocked!

Is there a solution where I can keep web shield on and have comodo be effective in blocking? Or do I need a new firewall?

I've tried many free antivirus over the years, but these two have always consistently been the ones I liked the most.

After some issues with Windows 10 last year, I had to briefly switch to Avira but after the issues were fixed I got back to Avast because it was the one I had learned to rely upon in the last few years. However, I'm open to reassess my position between these two excellent products. Something that has also spurred me to reassess the situation was the fact that LifeHacker has recently changed their recommendation from Avast to Avira as the "The Best (Free) Antivirus App for Windows".

On one hand Avast offers a more complete feature set:

File System Shield
Web Shield
Mail Shield
Behavior Blocker (DeepScreen)

Still, I disable the E-mail blocker because I solely use Web mail. I also disable the Web shield because:

It seems to slightly slow down my browsing
I don't like to have all my HTTP traffic analyzed by the AV or any other program
Sometimes it doesn't play well with HTTPS because it internally to scan the encrypted traffic which changes the original website's certificate (I know I can selectively disable the Web Shield for HTTPS only)

So, in practice, I have been using the File System Shield and the Behavior Blocker at default sensitivity settings (no Hardened Mode) to avoid too many False Positives and issues with less known software. I've had no problems with this set up for a long time.

A:Is there any conflict with Avast Free and Comodo Firewall?

Conflict between Avast's Behaviour Shield and Comodo Firewall had been fixed in version 17.2.2288 (see release history). Since you've said that you want antivirus for which you don't have to have techincal knowledge, I'd recommend Bitdefender Free. It's light on RAM & CPU and it doesn't have any advanced settings but still offers very good protection. You just need to install it, create Bitdefender account and then sign in inside program, that's it.

A:comodo internet secuirity and avira free?

It's not safe to run both of them at the same time if they both installed (assuming Comodo Internet Security also includes an antivirus). This is because having two antiviruses can cause problems with your computer in its performance and compromise the security of your computer.

As for which one is better, it's really a matter of opinion, let alone that I haven't used either of the products.

A:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.

From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).

From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).

I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

A:Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 vs Avast! Internet Security 2016

If you have the money to purchase it, I would strongly recommend Kaspersky Internet Security 2016.
Overall, Kaspersky might not be as user friendly (many alerts when properly configured) and as light as Avast (Kaspersky always was a little hoggy, although that has been mostly fixed in the recent versions), however the security components of KIS are much more mature and powerful (when properly configured) than those of AIS.

In conclusions, if you have capable computer hardware and you don't mind a little bit of configuration and quite a few alerts, I would definitely recommend KIS.
If you believe that KIS might be too heavy for your system, and that you do not really visit suspicious sites and download suspicious applications, then I'd recommend AIS.

Hello everyone,

I am hoping someone can please help me with the following...

My current security setup is...

AVG free anti-virus
Windows Defender anti-spyware
Zone Alarm free firewall version 6.5.737.000
Cyberhawk http://www.novatix.com/cyberhawk/
Firefox browser with no-script extension
Sandboxie

I also do periodic scans with AVG anti-spyware free (real time disabled), spybot search and destroy, lavasoft adaware, a-squared, and bitdefender online scan.

My current setup is working fine, but recently when I tried to upgrade Zone Alarm free, it caused my computer to crash and restart so I had to go back to version 6.5.737.000 which always worked great. I have also read reviews that the most recent version of ZA is also causing crashes. Additionally, ZA free is now about a 38 MB download which takes some time to download on a 56 k dial up connection.

I like to keep my security software updated, but do I really need to update to the most recent version of ZA ? If not now, then when ?

I have been thinking of trying the free Comodo firewall as it seems to have good reviews, although I heard that the company was previously affiliated with a spyware company. I heard similar rumors about the company behind spywareterminator previously being affiliiated with spyware.

Is comodo 2.4.18.184 a better choice than ZA free ? The upcoming release of comodo (version 3.0) is supposed to have HIPS, so as long as it does not conflict with cyberhawk, I guess I should be OK, or I can do ... Read more

A:My current security combo & Comodo Versus ZA free Firewall

I am currently in a similar position to you, although I got there in a different way!

I was using Win 98 quite happily and had NOD32 and ZA Pro (one of the 6.0 series because it was the last one that worked with '98 and, like you, I had read a lot of stuff about the problems some people were having with the 7.0 series). My 98 computer suffered a terminal crash (due to an error of mine!) and so I now have XP Home. I have made several attempts to get a new d/l of ZAP but without success, probably because my anti-spyware sub expired during the period I was 'offline'.

Like you I was appalled at the prospect of a 38MB d/l for the free version on dialup so I got Comodo. It's too early to make a judgement about whether Comodo is better, worse or just different to ZA, because I'm still very much in the learning process with it. Perhaps a long term Comodo user will respond and give us some feedback?

Hi,

Well I want to know is Comodo Internet Security 8 or Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 better?
 

A:Comodo Internet Security 8 VS Kaspersky Internet Security 2016

Despite one being paid only and the other free solution, if you can have even trial versions of Kaspersky, then comparison can be done as follow:

KIS has a very good selection of under the hood protection even on default settings, so it works out of the box. Comodo on the other hand has good tools as well but requires manual configuration on settings to even come close to Kaspersky.

In terms of AV, KIS is known for its signatures and removal processes. Comodo on the other hand has always focused on Prevention over Detection.

User friendliness, both are fine at first look but when you start to dig into the options, both can be daunting.

So if you have the option to use KIS, then I recommend KIS.

If you do not and you are just an average user/casual user, perhaps another free solution will do you better.

Edit: forgot to mention: Kaspersky does have a small boot time impact compared to Comodo but it is basically negligible.

I vote for Norton.
If you change SONAR to agressive you will have better protection against zero-day threats even offline.( despite Sonar requires on-line connection for better heuristic real-time protection. )
Norton is lighter, Its improved performace and, I think if you are 80%of the time not connectec to internet, norton gives you a very good layer of protection

Hi guys

I have the following product installed on my one computer : Comodo CIS 2009 free. (http://www.comodo.com) which is not a rogue antivirus. I want to know how to set it so that a pop up doesn't occour asking me for an action everytime I install programs, is it normal that it does that or is it a security measure that no malware gets installed by mistake? How do I control what applications are allowed and what are blocked?

Regards

Roger

A:Comodo Internet Security Free

It is there so that nothing can be installed without you knowing about it. When you get the pop-up, if you know what it is, select 'Installer or Updater' and then say yes to installation mode. You will usually get one other popup to allow and then it will install quietly.

This is necessary to prevent you suffering a drive by download from an infected website, which are very common now.

With CIS nothing unknown can install itself on your system unless you allow it.

Avast Internet Security 2016 offers a great level of protection on its default settings. However, there are a few settings which you can change to increase even more the protection offered by Avast Internet Security 2016.
This guide should also cover Avast Premium 2016, and some settings should apply to Avast Free 2016.





1. Enable Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP's) detection
A PUP (potentially unwanted program) is a program that may be unwanted, such as spyware, despite the possibility that users consented to download it. This usually includes: toolbars, browser hijackers or adware (ad-supported software)

Open Avast, then click on Settings (gear icon)





In the "General" tab, select "Scan for potentially unwanted software (PUPs)".




2. Enable Avast Hardened Mode
Hardened Mode is designed to make protection tougher without interfering with the computer usage much.
Avast by default checks suspicious files with DeepScreen within virtual environment to see how they behave. But if you use Hardened Mode, it starts to behave a bit differently.

Hardened Mode: Moderate
Under normal conditions, if Avast decides that some file is too suspicious by various characteristics, it then throws it into the DeepScren for further scanning. But if Moderate Hardened Mode is enabled, Avast automatically blocks files that are detected as suspicious by preliminary analysis.
In most cases DeepScreen checks the file and if it doesn't... Read more

Whether one antivirus is better than another is more a matter of opinion than fact. It all depends on what criteria you use for the comparison.

Which is better when it comes to the following:

Resource Usage (eg: CPU, RAM)
Real World System Impact
User Friendliness
User Interface

Overall Winner

Thank you in advance

A:Comodo Internet Security Free vs Windows Defender

There's no need to compare for this.
The answer is very obvious right?

wat is better out of the two?

A:comodo antivirus vs. avira free

AntiVir has proven high detection rates according to AV-Comparatives and AV-Test. Comodo AV is improving but on the few tests I've seen AntiVir scores higher.Also, Comodo has much more false positives.

I would like to know that can i use trend micro IS with comodo firewall,as trend micro have only a windows firewall booster???????
 

A:trend micro internet security and comodo firewall combo

Hello and welcome to MalwareTips.

Yes, it is possible to use Trend with Comodo Firewall, just I see no point in it. If you configure the Windows Firewall too not accepted any in-bound connections without user interaction then that is one step up.

The Trend Micro Firewall Booster's feature is intended to provide extra network vulnerability detection and anti-bonet protection. By enabling the Firewall Booster it does not enable the Windows Firewall, and Firewall Booster does not register itself to the Windows Security Center (WSC).
It also works with third-party firewalls.

Hope this cleared things up a bit.

Once again welcome.

I just downloaded comodo internet security. Its firewall plus antivirus. I have Avast antivirus, i only wanted the comodo firewall. I read while downloading the CIS that i could chose the standalone firewall option while set up. I finished downloading and have now installed the CIS, what I couldn't find while installation was the option for stand alone firewall.
I now have CIS as well as Avast antifvirus. I have to uninstall one of the antiviruses.
Should I keep CIS(comodo antivirus +firewall) or should I opt for comodo stand alone firewall with Avast antivirus.
If i have to chose comodo firewall alone without the antivirus, how can i get the stand alone firewall without the anti virus now.
Maybe, i had to chose this before installation,but I seem to have missed that option while installation...what to do now?
Please Help.
Thanks in advance.

Avast and SecureAPlus have been fairly interesting for me. Both seem to have great scanning and protection. Which would you choose?
NOTE: I have heard that SecureAPlus may have a really slow scan in the beginning. If that something you don't like that fine, Avast has a slow scan as well so I am not counting against either one.
 

A:Avast Free Anti-Virus 2016 vs SecureAPlus Free (Latest)

Thread Approved. Here are the official websites:

Avast Free Antivirus: Avast | Download Free Antivirus for PC, Mac & Android
SecureAPlus: Free Cloud Antivirus & Application Control for PC - SecureAPlus
@J Gamez065 If all factors are to be considered, why is the initial slow scanning ignored?

System Resource Usage
Realistic Performance Impact
Ease of Use
Graphical User Interface
Inclusive Product Features
Preferred Product and Why?

A few days ago(2 weeks) Avira popped up saying that there was an error in updating. I shrugged it off and continued daily life but now its been 2 weeks and it still wont update. Also yesterday I tried to update my comodo firewall but it also had problems and wouldn't update.

I was wondering if anybody here could help me?

I have 2 pics of what they both show.

today I reinstalled avira free 2016, on win10 pro x64.
It seems that the cpu usage is a lot higher than it used to be I am often seeing 6% cpu usage from Avira.
Avira.servicehost is the name of the process I am talking about.
This is on skylake i-5, with a light work load. Aside from windows task manager, I have no other process running that is using a significant amount of cpu.
Isn't 6% cpu too high for an AV running on a modern system?
 

A:Avira Free 2016 high CPU usage?

may be it's temporarily some time and it's gone
