Comodo BOClean protects you against a full spectrum of malware, automatically removing these programs from memory, your hard disk and your registry without the need to reboot or drop your internet connection. It safely neutralizes these threats instantly without any risk of damage to your files or computer. It is designed for central administration in network environments and can be customized in a number of ways. It can also be hidden on a desktop to protect against tampering by end users. Because it is automatic and runs in the background, there is no need to depend on user training or vigilance to secure your network. It is also excellent for individual users and "home" networks. It will shut down an intrusion long before the person on the other end has a chance to so much as "ping" the victim's machine, much less start grabbing data. When an intrusion occurs, it will stop it instantly. No other security program from any other manufacturer works this way.

BOClean - Setup

BOClean - installed

BOClean - menu

BOClean - options


1. If you already have a copy of any earlier BOClean on your machine, UNINSTALL it first! If you have BOClean running on the tray bar, right click it, select "shut down BOClean". Should you forget to do this the remover will complain and tell you to do so. There is no harm done if the old BOClean were to be left running, however you'll have two BOCleans running and that will waste resources. The two will not interfere with one another, but you only require one.

2. In order to properly install COMODO BOClean 4.23, you *MUST* be logged on as an administrator/owner. A reminder screen will appear when started to warn that it must be installed under the administrator/owner. It's NECESSARY to ensure that the kernel driver is properly loaded that the installation be done by administrator.

3. Once installed, BOClean will NOT reboot the machine - this is done in order to protect any "works in progress" on the user's machine from accidental loss. However, the kernel driver once installed MUST start at boot-up and without a boot-up to kick it off; it will not be present until the machine has been rebooted. BOClean will also start automatically after a reboot; it is NOT started by the installer based upon the need for its kernel driver to be present. Without the kernel driver, any "test nasties" will not be detected until the "10 second recalibration flash" on the tray bar icon whereas with the kernel driver running, it will do so instantaneously. This is the reason for the reboot requirement rather than just starting BOClean straight away.
