Issue: How to Uninstall Comodo Geekbuddy?

GeekBuddy pop-ups are getting on my nerves! Don’t get me wrong, I like Comodo, but this GeekBuddy thing is really unnecessary for me. Maybe there’s a way I can use the antivirus without this additional service constantly running on the PC.

Solved Answer

GeekBuddy is an online computer support service which installs together with COMODO antivirus. Comodo Group is a respected software developer, trusted by millions of users around the world. It offers numerous products including email security solutions, malware detection, and prevention tools for PC and mobile, device management software and much more. Nevertheless, even the best-rated software has its downfalls. And GeekBuddy is one of them. Although this program gets installed as an integral part of the Comodo service, the statistics show that 57 % of users recommend removing GeekBuddy from the computer.

Comodo GeekBuddy removal

One of the prominent features of this software is that it installs Windows Service which allows it to automatically launch at PC boot-up and continue running in the background of the system. Typically, you will see the “COMODO livePCsupport Service” service running in your Windows Task Manager as CLPS.exe. Terminating these processes manually may temporarily put the service on hold, but it will not remove GeekBuddy from your computer. The pop-ups offering live support will continue to show up after the PC is rebooted. To remove unwanted service properly, you will have to uninstall the program as shown in the guidelines below.
