In the latest version of Comodo CIS there are virtually no pop-ups at all. Also the AV in the new Comodo is just as good as Avira in my opinion. I am a safe surfer and don't visit dodgy sites, I am also very PC security aware and used Comodo Firewall in conjunction with Avira for years before completely going over to Comodo CIS earlier this year. I can't say a bad thing about either of them as I have never had a virus found in the time I used them approx 4yrs. I read posts saying things like there are more false positives with Comodo which in my opinion are pure hearsay and not my experience at all. In fact the only AV I have ever used which I found bad for false positives was AVG7.5 which got so bad I used to keep a shortcut to Jotti's just to test anything AVG found. The only reason I uninstalled Avira was that I believe having one companies security system has got to use less resources and less chance of conflicting programs and have found my view confirmed since changing. I personally think that a lot of the anti Comodo sentiment stems from their competition who would much rather have you buy their product than get a free one from Comodo. Another plus in my view for Comodo is that they have a really efficient and helpful forum. Human nature I suppose tends to believe that there ain't no such thing as a free meal and therefore a paid for version must be better but as anyone who uses these forums regularly knows the paid for versions may have more bells and whistles but the security and malware finding capacity offered is just the same as in the free version.
