Comodo cleaning essentials review for windows

Comodo Cleaning Essentials (CCE) is a set of powerful security tools designed to help users identify and remove malware and unsafe processes from Windows computers. Designed as a portable application, the software requires no installation and can be run directly from removable media such as a USB key

When you launch Comodo it spends a moment initializing and checking out the system, then offers you the choice of a "smart," full, or custom scan. Whichever scan you choose, Comodo goes on to download the latest updates. On one test system, malware interfered with the update process. A full scan solved that problem, however, and when I tried a second scan the update proceeded without a hitch

Comodo Cleaning Essentials (CCE) contains an on-demand scanner and is portable ie it can run from a USB stick, or a CD/DVD and doesn’t install itself on your hard drive. It employs both heuristic and signature-based scanning and can detect trojans, rootkits and other forms of malware.


There are 3 scanning modes in CCE:

  • Smart* – performs a quick scan of critical areas of your PC eg the registry and boot sectors etc
  • Full – a complete scan of all areas of your system
  • Custom – individual files, folders and drives can be added for scanning. Dragging and dropping can also be employed if preferred.

The GUI is very clean and straightforward and during a scan there is a rotating green dial that appears and resembles a radar screen. In the midst of a scan, any malware that is detected can either be cleaned/quarantined, or reported as a false positive to Comodo, or simply ignored if you are fully confident that it is benign.
