Review Date: 2016-12-30
Pros: None, used to be good years ago, lost its plot now.
Cons: Have to pay for firewall option, install made me feel sleepy it took so long, added installed unwanted software, nothing like Comodo Internet Security, it come with firewall and does not install unwanted software.
Other Thoughts: Nothing good i ma afraid
