Installation Feedback
Comodo has way too many download pages to the point it was hard to find the free internet security version (wasnt even linked on their website)
The setup is quite slow for laptops and downloads additional programs made by Comodo, uncheck all boxes you see ticked.
Requires you to restart your computer multiplie times

Interface Feedback
UI can be hard to navigate for your avarage user and it can be sometimes hard to get to the correct thing youre looking for.

Usability Feedback
The containment is disabled by default and HIPS is set on Safe Mode, which will make a lot of pop ups which will scare your avarage user.
Scanning your system is useless as it relies on its sandbox to find malware.
It has a lot of features, including HIPS, which should be disabled, a firewall, behavior blocker and a sandbox which runs a program in a virtual environment to check if it does any malicous changes.

Performance and System Impact Feedback
It slightly slows down your computer.
One thing I have noticed is that it randomly has CPU spikes with cpu usage as high as 40%, but this is only for around 20 minutes at most.
Protection

Protection Feedback
The strongest part of this AV is that it is very good at protecting you against malware, including ransomware, as it, again, uses its sandbox to detect malware, however, this sandbox is not 100% secure and ransomware may have time to encrypt some files before being put into the sandbox
Its web protection is non existant and its browser extension is really bad compared to others.
