    Comodo Internet Security is free and comes with the antivirus.

    It does not come with Live Support or any of their guarantees.

    I personally can not attest to Comodo's antivirus... I've never used it. I can tell you right now that Defense+ on its own is better than an antivirus in my own opinion. That doesn't mean you can't run it with Comodo's antivirus or anyone else's though. I just feel it's overkill.

    I just checked the logs and the av looks for an update about every 30 minutes. Of course that appears to be overkill, but it's actually updated the database twice since midnight.

    As it should be. Making checks to a server won't slow your computer down and updates are important.

    But, of course, I don't think AVs are necessary with Comodo, just helpful.

    Eeh, When I go to Sandbox Java, Its telling me to select a path from my system and I can't find Java. Where is it usually located?

    Quick question...
    When you open up Comodo, it shows the firewall status and the defense status right... but does it also show the sandbox status? Or are there just those two. Thanks.

    I ask because I could have sworn that previously it showed all three... but now it only shows 2 on my new install.... even though sandboxing is enabled...unless I've lost my mind. If it does show all three, any ideas why it doesn't for me now?

    The sandbox option does not have its own separate tab/section. It is merged in with Defense+ since it is considered to be apart of Defense+

    In the Defense+ tab, there should be two lines that read like this:
    0unrecognized files observed/will be treated as Restricted
    0 applications currently running in the Sandbox

    You should be able to click the underlined numbers/word and access the options to change them individually. It has never shown all three individually for me in their own separate tabs.

    Comodo from what I've researched it's top notch for something that's free. I just disable the sandbox thing and defense and boom I'm protected with little annoyances. The virus protection lasts forever and I don't know how good it is compared with the ones you buy but it seems at least good.
