Why Comodo Antivirus for Mac Computers?
There used to be a time when Mac computers were considered almost 'virus-proof'. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. The quantity of Mac viruses is growing at an alarming rate and solid protection against these threats is essential if you wish to prevent identity theft, file corruption or interception of your credit card details.

As far as Mac antivirus apps go, it's not the worst of the bunch, by far (Avast is the winner in this respect, IMHO), but I still wonder why the installer will switch from the chosen system language to Finish when it comes to click on "Install"... Could prompt more than one Mac user to cancel the whole thing. Haven't we been repeatedly told not to click on links leading to parts unknown...? For the record, I don't speak/read/write/guess Finish...

EDIT to my own review/rating: I'd like to remove 2.5 stars out of the 3 I gave it at first... This is one lousy piece of software, poorly coded, where dialogue boxes are empty except for a cryptic "100" or "200" caption (some secret Finish code, no doubt), got me to involuntarily restart my computer after launching the UNinstaller (yes, you read right: I was booted out of my own Mac by an indicipherable Suomi message), losing my work in the process.

Like a said, "lousy". Spells S*H*I*T*T*Y...

I really wish I could give this application 5 stars! I love Comodo for Windows, and recommend it to all of my clients who need malware protection, but this Mac product is not stable enough for use. Installation was not a problem, but an attempt to perform a complete scan of my Mac Pro caused a complete system lockup four times. (Forced reboot was required each time) I have wasted enough time trying to resolve the issue that I'm not interested in a fix any more. I will probably try again when they release an update, but this is definitely not ready for actual use.

Although Comodo detects most threats, it has a poor malware removal system, especially when it comes to rootkits, and it's not just me, I've found this issue in many reviews and tests by different labs.
Also, the same slow Mac problem here.

The Comodo download site seems to be blocked in the People's Republic of China. If that is because of Comodo's anti-spyware/anti-malware capabilities, this blocakge can be considered a medal of honor.

Comodo is definitely a step-up from Avira. Features like on-demand scanning, Game Mode, and good control of what & how it does what it does. It might be a bit intimidating to users who aren't technically inclined or inexperienced with A/V software but it isn't too bad. There was no noticeable effect on my QC Mac Pro's performance, though it did indicate what I believe to be a false positive - a clip art PDF in Toast's Disc Cover 3 RE.app. At the same time it found a dirty Java file that Sophos, ClamX AV, and MacScan all missed so maybe Comodo is more sensitive(?).

I'm sorry, but the alarmist attitude on the developer's website is a little over the top: "There used to be a time when Mac computers were considered almost 'virus-proof'. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. "

There is very small number of malware for OS X, but no viruses. Not a single one.

Having said that it's always good to use an anti-virus app like Comodo if you share files with Windows folks so you don't infect them with a virus that cannot affect you.

System specs say "10.6 and later".

Nothing about 10.7 Lion.
Is it Lion compatible...?

Regarding from the point of view of a developer, "10.6 and later" means 10.6.1 to 10.6.x, but not 10.7.x.

But I've never heard a developer say, This software is compatible with 10.3 and later, 10.4 and later, 10.5 and later, 10.6 and later, and 10.7 and later. They would just say, 10.3 and later, wouldn't they? Just wondering.

Oh, and I just saw that I made a typo in my original post. It was supposed to say, Is 10.7 later than 10.6? Duh. Sorry.

The "or later" designation has generally always meant any version beyond the minimum, be it minor (10.6.x) or major (10.7) releases.

May be I am alone, may be not: On Mac OS X 10.8.2 with AV installed, either Comodo or Sophos, if I have several applications running (Mail, Firefox, Skype), one application will hang (=beachball) and take the other applications with it, they also start beachballing.

Console output is inconclusive.

Uninstalling Comodo resolves the issue.

Same application hang happens with Sophos, so it is not a Comodo-only issue.

Any input will be most welcome.

Old thread, I know, but Comodo is doing the same thing for me. Sophos isn't, since disabling on-access scanning.

Featuring an on-demand scanner, 'always on' real-time protection and a constantly updated database of known viruses, Comodo AV provides superior protection against zero-day malware. This is not a stripped down version of a paid product, it's the real deal. Scan any drive or file. Get in-depth reports on viral activity. Even scan compressed .zip files, where viruses often hide. All in one attractive user-friendly interface.

Unique Features
  • Automatic updates for the most up-to-date virus protection
  • Drag and drop any object onto the dock icon for instant virus analysis
  • Easy to use interface lets you install and forget: no annoying pop-ups or false alarms
