comodo boclean - free malware progam

i see that comodo have a free malware download called boclean.

i just wondered if any of you learned members have any opinions of it yet?

my mcafee sub is due to expire soon and i'm going for the free stuff now, as i'm a pca convert. i will be using the comodo firewall by the way.

For a realtime antispyware prog I much prefer here
I tried BoClean some time ago but was not very happy with it (over zealous and too many false positives was the reason - I think)
If your McAfee sub is expiring then you will need a replacement anti-virus prog (Avast or AVG are both free).
BoClean is an anti spyware/malware prog not an anti virus prog.
Having said that there is no reason not to try BoClean yourself.

hi thanks for the info, there are so many free programs, although i've read good things about spyware terminator here.
i'll probably go for the avg anti-virus also

Just remember,one Antivirus and one Firewall only.
