RE: comdo IS, avast, or avira?

Well I would say Avast free and Comodo Firewall...avast becasue it is overall good and comodo firewall because i have heard that it is quite good

I personally run the full CIS suite, but I would have no problems running (and have in the past) either Avira or Avast free with Comodo's firewall. Both Avira and Avast are very capable.

avast free with comodo firewall i think would be good. I also think elliot uses this combo to.

CIS as a full suite , I don't like to have a lot of process running in the backround.CIS with CAV works like a unity so I think it's better.....
Comodo Firewall in the right hands it's an perfect protection tool..so what antivirus are you using has no real importance. :p

I would use Avast with Comodo firewall, Simply because I prefer to be running under Avasts signatures then Comodo.

Just a question, doesn't the sandbox of Avast interfere with the one in Comodo ? (Haven't used comodo anymore in quite a while so I'm curious)

Comodo's sandbox just automatically answers HIPS prompts based on the selected configuration, Avast's sandbox is a virtualisation sandbox, so they don't conflict.

But......................Avast has a BB. Comodo has a HIPS. You CANNOT use both together. As of right now OA's HIPS and Avast dont play nice together.

A couple of things are worth being mentioned:

  • Avast's Behavior Guard and Defense+ might be too much, but you can install avast free antivirus without the BB (you still have avast's sandbox) if you want to.
  • Even if you don't install the AV part of Comodo, you still use their cloud technology: white/blacklisting and CIMA.
  • My system felt lighter when using Avast Free + Comodo Firewall compared to using the full CIS suite, but I used this setup some time ago, maybe the antivirus part in CIS is improved now.
  • CIS is extremely modular, disabling a module doesn't affect other modules, it doesn't "break" it.

So I've used Avast Free + Comodo Firewall because:

  • System felt lighter
  • Avast had better detection than CAV in tests

Again, please note that I haven't used CAV recently, maybe it is improved. CAV recently received a Virus Bulletin award.

For less experienced people I'd recommend Avast free or Avira free, but for more experienced people I'd recommend CIS (which is CF and CA :p). It all depends, I think though CIS can get annoying for everyone with almost every action needing consent by default.

CIS does not have a web shield so I do not understand the exact problem.
No it does not but is has a DNS that filters out malicious Domains.

But we are not talking about downloading malicious stuff. He specifically stated he could not download at all unless he turned off CIS. Does not matter anyways cause Comodo DNS servers are very poor at blocking malware related sites when compared to Norton DNS or ClearCloud DNS. Even languy99 stated this.
