I have Avast on my computer this time around and it is too many adverts and pop ups.  I want to put Comodo back on or some other virus protection.  I dont like downloading this myself because one time I downloaded from the wrong link and got a virus.  Can someone help me with the right link and setup instructions if needed?  Thanks!

You can safely download what you want from Comodo's own site here:

Don't forget to use the Avast Removal Tool to be sure you get all of it. If you have any trouble after you use add/remove programs feature to uninstall Avast.
