We have partnered with Comodo to give away 50 free licenses for its Comodo Internet Security Pro 3.8 package. What do you need to do to get a license ? Read on…
While the basic free version of CIS provide good security for your computer, its Pro version adds more punch. Comodo Internet Security Pro comes with added features like TrustConnect and LivePCSupport. TrustConnect is a network, wherein you can mark programs as safe or unsafe and this info gets shared with other users to help them decide a file’s risk. LivePCSupport offers chat with agents to help you with setup, PC Tune-up and computer and printer troubleshooting.
It took about 5 minutes to install the software and another 10 minutes to update to the latest virus defenitions. Once the initial installation was done it ran an full system scan which took about 1 hour to finish. Installation was easy but it also tried to install Comodo’s browser bar which I unchecked.
The main screen is quite self explanatory, shows you if the system is updated, any firewall intrusions and blocked applications. The Traffic usage section is also pretty useful to know which program is sucking up the bandwidth. Since I know that my PC does not currently have any viruses, I’ve changed the Proactive Defense from safe mode to clean PC mode. This ensures that I do not get bothered with many requests for programs already on my system but will provide safety against any new files.
When new programs try to connect to the internet there is a popup box which asks you if you would like to allow the connection.
Once CIS Pro is installed and activated with a license you can accesss the account area to connect to a customer service agent via chat. Clicking on one of the link to the right as shown in the picture below will open a chat box.
I assumed the role of a newbie trying to install Comodo and wanting help with some suspected files. The agent immediately offered his help and started a remote connection to my computer and checked Comodo for proper installation. He also helped me with the file I made him believe was a virus (fake). LivePCSupport is worth the money anyone would pay for the Pro version. Why ? I’d rather not pay Dell (or any other provider) a ton of cash just to get some help with my PC troubleshooting. Getting free tech support for non techies is a huge blessing.
