You nailed it, I don't live in the past or with hopes as well, security is a thing that must be efficient today, not yesterday, not tomorrow. Malware writers don't wait the next Windows hole, they attack what they find now.The various ratings for comodo may be close to those for classic cars. What was excellent at that time was not necessarily excellent even now. Some people praise and worship the past with excellent results, while others see it with a cold eye if it is inferior from the current point of view.
Currently, comodo is supported by those who have strong expectations for the “stable next version” .It might be like the horizon.
Im not some kind of fool living today with the memory and expectations of the past like some do with Sandboxie, Malwarebytes or else. I don't have a second thought ditching my favorite soft the second it does not suit my requirements anymore. I did with Comodo, Malwarebytes, Sandboxie, and few others long time ago.
This is the right behavior, and about Comodo, you see why many hardcore users like me ditched it. And what you experienced is just the tip of the iceberg.I used Comodo for a dozen years or so and never had a problem until a couple of months ago, not long after my Aug post in this thread. Then, an upgrade (don't remember the number) totally screwed up my laptop. Fortunately I had a backup (God bless Macrium Reflect) and fixed the mess. I tried a second time with the same results. After the second download and same mess, I uninstalled with Revo and now use Hard Configurator with ConfigureDefender and Firewall Hardener, and my computer is running well and faster than with Comodo.
Where software is concerned, I don't give 3rd chances. It works for me, or it's gone. Comodo is gone.
When you find a serious issue, notify the devs, and they dismiss/ignore it or even admit they can't fix it, it is time to leave...
And yes Macrium or any backup/imaging softs are worth 10 security softs, I can live without a security soft, not without a backup one. Even Windows Backup is worth the use, MS wanted ditch it, im glad they didn't, it works flawlessly on my end.
