    Even better. But I stated the most I could confirm at the time.

    One reason consumers would consider Norton or others is pay support for when things go wrong.

    Are you saying Comodo AV is completely worthless, or that the only thing cost money is support? Support is also free via their forums.

    I'm saying Comodo's AV is free...

    GeekBuddy is not free.

    +1. I once read from another forum that the core engine of both the free and paid AV's is the same.

    The only difference is on "paid" versions, a lot of the functions are done on an automatic and real-time manner. :)

    The core engine in virtually every AV is likely difference but they all work in similar ways/ perform similar functions.

    There's no reason that throwing 20 bucks at a piece of software will make you any more protected.
