Comodo have been well known for the quality of security product they are providing, especially firewalls and host based intrusion prevention system. I started to use comodo pc firewall when it made it freely for home users, step by step they created their antivirus solution but at first it was not a very good one according to benchmarking and AV testers (such as AVcomparative and AVtest) , but we can consider it as one of the free antiviruses.
Now comodo added to its portfolio Comodo Cleaning Essentials (CCE) a free solution that contains three important components:
- KillSwitch comes to monitor all process running on the operating system.
- Malware Scanner this is the important antivirus tool and it will detect and remove viruses, rootkits and worms.
- Autorun analyzer which will look at the system bootup to list all autorun applications and programs.
After running Comodo Cleaning Essentials (CCE) you will notice that it is light so no big memory usage and it will help you to detect and remove malwares quickly. I think that you can use it if you are going to check a computer as no need to install any software.
