The latest news from Comodo


New expert Tune Up service optimizes a user's PC while keeping Internet users safe from cyber criminals for free - no catches, no kidding

Jersey City, NJ (May 28, 2008) - Comodo, a leading security company, today announced the availability of its PC Tune Up program, a free service that optimizes PC performance and configures resources to its fullest capabilities while removing spyware, viruses, malware and other malicious programs from users' machines. Unlike other companies that offer free automated scanning or cleaning tools that users must manage, Comodo's free PC Tune Up has real people remotely optimizing and securing user's machines. For a limited time (until June 10), this service is available free of charge, with no fees or hidden charges whatsoever - no catches, no kidding.

Over time, a computer's performance tends to slow because of all of the extraneous files and programs that are on a machine. Some of these files may be malicious in nature, compromising a user's data, programs, or personal and financial information. Users are left helpless when programs slow, or worse, when they freeze, crash or present a security threat. When a user registers for the PC Tune Up service, Comodo Security Experts remotely access the user's machine via a remote chat connection, personally scanning and removing potentially unwanted programs that can slow down the performance of PCs or make it unstable. Comodo's experts will also clear up hard disk space by deleting unnecessary files, making a user's PC run faster.

The Tune Up Services Include:
  • Scan, detection and removal of viruses, Trojans, rootkits and other security threats

  • Clearing hard disk space by removing extraneous files

  • Optimizing and configuring the user's system for top performance

  • Increasing the user's overall PC speed

  • 100% free service (limited time offer)

"To build a trusted Internet, all users need technologies to keep their computers clean of malicious programs," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. "We offer many of these services for free as part of Comodo's commitment to deliver a trusted Internet where users can be confident that their online activities are safe and secure - irrespective of a user's ability to pay."
