When you install it it prompts you if you want to install a bundled program, but its often missed due to many users just going all out clicking the Accept/Next button when installing software.
The file appears as soon as running the installer, I haven't clicked on anything from within the installer.
Code:
fusion.dll
fusion.dll.tmp

Huh, thats weird, from my experience it has sometimes not prompted you to download some extra software, but it hasnt downloaded it secretly in the background, ive also found those fusion.dll files aswell when using hitmanpro and having comodo installed on my system a year or so ago, but I never knew they were part of comodo, perhaps false positives?

Edit; ran it in my virtual machine, its possible fusion.dll is part of the process that downloads the bundled software, but isnt malicious in on itself, its also possible comodo uses the same service that adware/bundlers use.

Edit 2: looking up the detection names possibly confirms my theory Comodo may be using the same service, FusionCore, as many other bundlers use.

The online installer has always had bundled software, well certainly for the last year or so. I think if you use the offline installer you won't get the other product offers. It's quite easy just to click decline or No when prompted. It's been awhile since I last installed it but I think it was just a case of declining the software offer. Maybe we'll see things change with this in upcoming versions but a couple of AVs have falsely detected the installer as PUP because of the software offers. Solution: use offline installer.

As @ErzCrz said, offline installer doesnt contain the bundled comodo stuff.
CIS Premium Offline Installer also does not contain Internet Security Essentials, which according to their FAQ, only works with Internet Explorer at this moment still (in other words, useless, unless they havent updated their version 12 FAQ)
