Comodo Internet Security frequent updates

Does anyone else have at least ten auto updates a day with the above?
I've had CIS for some months and they seem to be getting more frequent.
Can only assume they are false indications.
I don't really want to switch off auto.
Thanks.

Nope, they`re real enough apparently and mostly about the CIS anti-virus component: click here

"Rigth now once a day. Starting from 1st half of May, 2009 there will be multiple updates in a given day and finally every 30min, which is the final target. We are trying to make this happen asap so users can be protected in fastest possible way." (Comodo forum).

Comodo playing catch-up with other, longer-established AV programs, perhaps?

It looks as if Softpedia and Comodo have fallen out over SafeSurf and the Ask Toolbar thing:

Many thanks. Should have checked their forum first.

it`s like a blooming labyrinth in there and half the time posters don`t know which part of what program belongs to what app.

Not easy to navigate, I think they call it.

I think I did look at it months ago. I recognise it from your link.
What a nightmare!

Is there any way I can disable the updating balloon in the system tray. I have looked in
Misc.>Settings and the box for 'Display balloons' is unchecked.
Now that updates are so frequent I want to get rid of the balloon.
Would appreciate it if anyone on here knows to save me trawling through Comodo forums.
Incidentally in the time it has taken to type this I have had three balloons re updating!
Thanks.

Softpedia has been detailing its reasons for the Comodo fallout for many weeks.

Frankly I'm quite in agreement, although I do use Comodo Firewall Pro.

In misc. Settings it says: Show the balloon messages - These are the notifications that appear in the bottom right hand corner of your screen - just above the tray icons. Usually these messages like ' Comodo Firewall is learning ' or 'Defense+ is learning ' and are generated when these modules are learning the activity of previously unknown components of trusted applications. Clear this check box if you do not want to see these messages.

Which means, I think, you`ve done what you can to stop these balloons appearing.
As you say, the thing is now to visit the Comodo forums ... I look forward to hearing what they have to say (When you come back in six six weeks or so ...)

I stopped updating altogether when they were coming out with all this ant-virus and Vista compatibility stuff, as I think you know.
