Comodo Cleaning Essentials (CCE) is a set of powerful security tools designed to help users identify and remove malware and unsafe processes from Windows computers. Designed as a portable application, the software requires no installation and can be run directly from removable media such as a USB key.

CCE consists of these technologies:

  • KillSwitch - an advanced system monitoring tool that allows users to identify, monitor and stop potentially unsafe processes that are running on endpoint systems. Uniquely for a product of its type, KillSwitch leverages Comodo's huge whitelist database to isolate untrusted processes with an extremely high degree of accuracy – improving IT operational efficiency by reducing false positives and cutting the amount of time spent troubleshooting an endpoint machine.
  • Malware scanner – fully featured malware scanner capable of unearthing and removing viruses, rootkits, hidden files and malicious registry keys hidden deep within a system. The scanner is highly configurable, uses the latest heuristic techniques to detect previously unknown viruses, features first-class malware removal capabilities and is capable of detecting hidden drivers and services loaded during system start-up.
  • Autorun Analyzer - An advanced utility to view and handle services and programs that were loaded when your system booted-up.

CCE is another indispensable security tool from Comodo that offers unique functionality to users of any experience levels.

All users will benefit from the ability to quickly scan and remove viruses with a VB100 rated scanning engine. Advanced users such as system admins will enjoy the high levels of visibility and control that KillSwitch provides over processes and services.

Thank you for sharing this, viktik . This is the longest look I've taken of the Cleaning Essentials tools offered by Comodo; and I recognized Kill Switch from video tests I've enjoyed too!:D

Please forgive my cynicism here but if users have comodo internet security installed would this not make the use of CCE redundant seeing as cleaning essentials uses the same AV database...?
