'Unlike other anti-malware products, Comodo protects you against unknown threats that have not even been identified yet by security experts. This is because only unknown files are automatically placed in a sandbox and only verified files are allowed to run your system.
How Comodo Antivirus Software Works?
Here's how we do it:
Comodo Antivirus uses a unique multi-layered approach to protect your computer from malware.
- Known malware are identified using a "blacklist" signature file and deleted or quarantined.
- Known valid files are identified as safe using a "whitelist" of valid files and run safely.
- Intrusion Detection and Behavior Analysis (Heuristics) are used to identify potential threats from other files and deal with them.
- Any file not verified as safe will only run in a safe isolated system area called the Sandbox where it can do no harm to your files or operating system.
All that for free, plus a user friendly interface. You can also upgrade to our subscription version and receive world class customer support and the industry's only virus free guarantee.

How does Sandbox technology work and how does it protect me?
Auto Sandbox technology is an exclusive feature of Anti-virus for Windows. Comodo Internet Security for Windows comes bundled with the feature which creates an isolated, virtual system environment where all suspicious files and programs will be executed in trial mode before being granted access to your actual system. This prevents any virus or bug from modifying, corrupting or deleting actual data in your computer. The innovative feature provides stronger protection than traditional AV and any malicious files found will instantly be added to the blacklist.
Will programs run properly in Sandbox mode?
Yes. The Sandbox is a virtual, isolated extension of your actual desktop integrated with Anti-virus for Windows. Every suspicious file or program will be executed in this mode with a limited set of privileges. It will be tested thoroughly and confirmed safe before it is granted access to the actual registry. The analysis runs in the background without interrupting your daily activities. Safe programs are given permission while virus, bugs or trojans are permanently denied access to your PC.
