Scroll to the bottom of the “free” column to download.
Click “Save File”. Then open the file you have just downloaded.
User Account Control will ask you if you wish this program to make changes to your computer. Please chose “Yes”.
On this page, uncheck the box which says “Enhance my web browsing experience by setting Yahoo! as my homepage, new tab and default search engine (all supported browsers)”, then click Next.
On this page, uncheck “Change my DNS provider to COMODO Secure DNS (improved security online, faster resolution of web pages).”

Finally uncheck “Send anonymous program usage”, then click on the “Components” tab at the top of this screen.
The installer will then run.
Once this screen is displayed, click “Finish”. A Quick Scan Window will appear to download updated virus definitions and perform a quick scan of your computer. This will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
At some point your network will be detected. Please chose the appropriate type of network that you are connected to. If you are at Home, please chose “I am at Home.”. If you are in a public place, please chose “I am at a Public Place”
If you click the “Comodo Internet Security” icon on your desktop, you will be presented with the following screen. Please click “Advanced View” in the right hand corner of this window.
On the left hand side, please click Antivirus, followed by “Realtime Scan”. Untick the box next to “Do not show antivirus alerts” as we would like to be informed when a virus is detected, rather than the file just disappearing.
After you have restarted, the following web site will open automatically. You are safe to close it down.
