It is foolish to use Comodo Internet Security. It is too heavy on the system and the AV component is a total loser. It's as bad as they come. If you want to use Comodo, you should use the Firewall version.
I agree that Comodo Internet Security is too heavy....

I don't know about the current version of their full suite or whether it's light or heavy on the system. In the past, I only used the firewall and don't recall any major delays. The antivirus sucks according to most tests, but the two or three people I've talked to who use it in the real world are happy with it and how it performs. I wonder if it isn't the firewall, HIPS, and sandboxing they're seeing work rather than the AV.

I can't see any reason to use Comodo with such good suites in the world like Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Norton, ESET.

Why accept the risk with low development, bugs and low budget that Comodo has?
They have driven down ccav, also their extension in chrome webstore is dead, their secure browsers are outdated and something strange is happening on comodo side.....but the firewall and cis is still good product overall because the container does the job

And if you compare to free or even full suites, comodo probably is much lighter than the others even you install cis wich is enough for users comodo has

I think the fact that software specialized for firewalls has become an endangered species is one of the reasons why we have to choose comodo.
We've heard a lot about bugs, but I think there's still a chance that it will grow into a great piece of software if you build it carefully.

You can use SEP as a firewall too.
But always better using a gateway firewall.
But if you don't have a few bucks any default deny firewall can suffice .
 
so much negativity for comodo on here. true, they have mediocre sigs, but do we really want all the AV companies using bitdefender's engine and sigs, lol. i kinda like a company that develops their own thing. and besides that, they have additional mechanisms that compensate for the poor sigs. your system isn't really infected if it's in the sandbox. so if a new malware is isolated from your system, and later removed (when comodo's slower sigs catch up), it is still removed and your system secured. while a competitor might let that new malware enter your system unhindered and create havoc (because without the sig it isn't a recognized threat), and after it's too late try to clean it up after they discover this new threat. while they may develop the sig faster, if infected, your clean up is going to be far worse.
