The ComodoSecureEmail can be removed using the Uninstallation tool of the Windows. However, sometimes as the Uninstallation option is used, a Command Prompt Window opens for the flash of a second and gets closed. The Comodo SecureEmail remains unaffected. The next option is to select the “Add/Remove Programs” from the Windows “Control Panel” and deleting the software. Occasionally, this procedure also fails. Though this never happens always, but it happens, nevertheless. This Comodo SecureEmail if not used, takes up CPU resources unnecessarily and becomes a drag for the computer.
Such hazards from adware could be restricted and put under control with the effective use of firewalls and antivirus software. Few of the functions performed by firewalls and antivirus which help in removal of the adware are:
- Block unwanted sites
- Detect malicious programs
- Monitor the nature of downloads
Block unwanted sites
Firewall’s basic function is to block the ports which are harmful in nature and thus prevent any website content to enter your computer which could possibly contain adware. A well updated firewall keeps a regular tab on the sites which you visit and their safety levels.
Detect malicious programs
Adware can come through regular and safe sites and programs as well and this is where antivirus will play a strong role in detecting those and inform you so that you could either quarantine or remove them from your system.
Monitor the nature of downloads
Many a times you download free software from the Internet or attachments which come in your emails. Adware, by their nature have the tendency to piggyback themselves on programs which are safe and thus gain entry into your system. An effective antivirus will scan each download which you perform and indicate if adware is concealed in it or not.
