Comodo cloud antivirus version 1 – Review & settings

Malware is detected using comodo cloud engine. So computer must be connected to internet inorder to detect malware.

Malware detection rate is good.

Weak in detecting new malwares. But your computer will remain protected because unknown files will be automatically sandboxed.

Antivirus scan speed is slow.

Autosandboxing will sandbox some good applications also.
