Thank you for the prompt and insightful reply!
Hopefully, Emsisoft will continue to announce every newer major version of EEK on their Security Blog (approximately two times a year IIRC), and then I can just tell my dad about it so he can update.
He prefers that I send him a download link by Email, so I think he is comfortable handling EEK on his own, although he oftentimes complains about the Yahoo Toolbar that Comodo bundles, which many users over at the Comodo Forum certainly do as well.
I have advised him to download and install Unchecky, which albeit unchecks the Yahoo Toolbar during the manual installing process of CIS Free, but Unchecky cannot help whenever CIS Free automatically upgrades to a newer major version, as the YT then also gets automatically re-installed.
Obviously, however, he could have just changed to another free AV like Sophos Home
which does not bundle any PUPs, but he has already tried avast! and AVG, and as such, he refuses, because he prefers to remove it manually since he claims it does not affect every web browser either.
And as my dad now is retired, a former work colleague has advised him to install Adblock Plus in his web browsers for simplicity, since it is available for most web browsers, so there is no chance for him to agree on using uBlock Origin in at least the web browsers that the latter supports, which would have been better.
Thank you very much for the help!
The issue has been successfully resolved!
