Very slow update cycle, latest version and the one before it been very buggy, causes crash on system startup and killswitch wont work
Here im sitting 5 months waiting for update to fix something

Hope to see new release soon, fixing most current problems and making CIS great once again

Seems they care more about money than having working product for their customers

Cons:
- full of bugs
- weak antivirus engine
- useless support
- no concept
- weak optimization
- weak web protection
- difficult removal
- comodo valkyrie is a joke
- high cpu usage
- product development is a joke
High cpu usage? Sure, if you are using a toaster as computer.
And the other things are irrelevant.
You only need Hips, Sandbox and the Firewall. Period.

@koloveli Are you from Comodo, dev or something?

Until recently, I thought that bugs could only be found by those who were very familiar with the software. However, the current version is relatively easy to find bugs, and no officially fixed version is available at this time.
Like Avast, comodo may be a past champion.

Most of the reported bugs are superficial or as I always test, they are requests for improvements and not errors that compromise your security 😉
Superficial? Let me laugh... I guess you never used it long and deeply enough.
I and a pentester colleague found quite serious bugs/issues. The best was when he reported one of them (he has a direct channel to the lead dev) he got "can't fix it unless we redesign it from scratch" looool... Really?
Like the 12 years unfixed bug, that delete all HIPS rules if you dare make "too many" of them. Which totally defeat Comodo strongest component... I was a fan of Comodo until I stumbled upon that bug, then I simply ditched it.
I don't use software with poor development, and Comodo is full of it, just look at all the abandoned projects...
