Comodo can cause slow start up

January 22, 2010 at 08:07:46
Specs: Windows XP
I've had Comodo internet Security installed on 5 machines so far. So far I've had to uninstall it from 3 of those because of issues. One issue is a very slow start up.... looking at the comodo process it is taking up 100% cpu resources during start up... another issue is slow operations time with Comodo installed on Vista 64. Long story short, although I really really like Comodo firewall and Anti-Virus I'm afraid I've been replacing it with PC Tools Firewall, A-squared and AntiMalware Byte.

I have used PC tools firewall and AV. The av caused slow startup so now I use the firewall & AVG. I think PC tools was purchased by norton, not a good sign.
I don't think a-squared and malwarebytes, should be used as a replacement for a "traditional AV", instead they should be used as a supplement to a AV.

"traditional" AV, no matter which security suite you own, are constantly missing major risks all the time. A-squared has a paid "anti-malware" security suite that is is better, in my opinion, than some of the big boys. I've been fighting malware for over a decade... and at some point I always abandon one AV for the next best thing. SuperAntiSpyware killed some serious malware infections when AVG, AVAST, and the rest thought the computer was fine. Malware is malware to me whether its a virus, spyware, adware or a root kit. I would rather manually run A-squared or Malwarebyte once a week than to have 19 services installed lol.

As far as firewalls... I've had almost all of them installed at some point or another... back in the old says I was a zonealarm fan... but now that I run Vista 64 and 7 Ultimate 64 my choices of free firewalls are limited. Now that you mention Norton just bought PC Tools firewall I just got a splitting headache :(

I am not saying they are not usefull, or often pickup stuff the AV doesn't. I am just suggesting they should be used in conjunction with an AV. But, hey maybe you are right.

Actually, install as many anti-malware programs as possible provided they play well with each other... I agree with that...

Oh Symantec acquires PC Tools arrgggggggg. I remember when Trend Micro bought Sygate and all of sudden Sygate wasn't free any more.

That's right it was Hi-jackthis that Trend Micro acquired. Symantec acquired Sygate and then screwed all of it's users. It's almost certain they'll assimilate PC tools firewall into their own firewall within a years time. We'll see. I hate Symantec just like I hate Trend... they create the problem then supply the solution.
