    Lightbulb Comodo System Cleaner - Freeware

    What's about Comodo Firewall? nice... and really good ... well I use it in my PC.

    From the same sw house there's a utility that I had discovered a couple of weeks ago Comodo System Cleaner.

    Available in 32 bit and 64 bit versions for XP and Vista and Windows 2003 server. Comodo System Cleaner is 100% free to home and business users.

    A nice and free tool .... give it a try...

    Nice find. Looks good and its freeware too! Check out its features here and also its comparison with other similar types here.

    There appears to be a portable version too.

    Beware: The Comodo SafeSurf toolbar is the AskToolbar in disguise. I suggest that you read highly respected Ben Edelman's report in Current Practices of IAC/Ask Toolbars and learn more than you ask for:
    "As the fifth-biggest search engine, Ask faces a clear problem: How to get users to leave their favored search engines, to conduct their searches at Ask instead? One Ask strategy is to buys ads on TV and in other media, claiming to offer a better product. But Ask also drives traffic to its search engine by enticing users to install its toolbars. This article looks at Ask's current and recent toolbar practices, including:

    * Promoting its toolbars on sites targeted to kids. Details.
    * Promoting its toolbars through ads that appear to be part of other companies' sites. Details.
    * Promoting its toolbars through other companies' spyware. Details.
    * Installing without any disclosure whatsoever and without any consent whatsoever. Details.
    * Soliciting installations via "deceptive door openers" that do not accurately describe the offer; failing to affirmatively show a license agreement; linking to a EULA via an off-screen link. Details.
    * Making confusing changes to users' browsers -- increasing Ask's revenues while taking users to pages they didn't intend to visit. Details.

    Throughout, I compare these practices to the statements of Ask's staff, and I compare these practices with applicable legal and ethical duties."
    Understand that IAC pays vendors per install of their product. That is why the toolbar comes pre-checked with the installations and lately has been under the guise of a "security toolbar" as in the case of Comodo, Webroot and Symantec.

    ^ Now thats an imp piece of info. Can anyone verify if this Comodo System Cleaner comes with the Ask toolbar with 'pre-checked option'? If so one must not forget to un-check this option.

    Thanks for the warning Corrine but like tweakwindows I couldn't see it in this product and no tool bars have been added since the install. I've just check the interfaces and there is nothing nor has anything been added to the registry. So I don't know if this information applies to other products in the range. As far as this tool goes it is very good, better than CCleaner thus far, I would recommend it

    hey, i found a little handy trick for those apps which comes with prechecked for ask toolbars, if you need that app and obviously dont want to keep the toolbar, first install the app with it and after that go to your browser and disable the toolbar and after that uninstall it. this will keep the components of apps enable for which it warns to disable if you uncheck the ask toolbar option...
