How to Uninstall COMODO Internet Security 2017?

Issue: I used COMODO Internet Security 2017 from the time it was released, but I’ve noticed that my computer behaves strangely (displays pop-ups, redirects me to dodgy websites, etc.) even tough the web protection is on.

Issue: I tried to remove it, but it keeps reinstalling somehow. I see it in Program Files and User Data. I tried to delete it in Safe Mode, but it still won’t go away. What am I doing wrong?

Solved Answer

Don’t pay ransomware authors – use alternative data recovery options

Malware attacks, particularly ransomware, are by far the biggest danger to your pictures, videos, work, or school files. Since cybercriminals use a robust encryption algorithm to lock data, it can no longer be used until a ransom in bitcoin is paid. Instead of paying hackers, you should first try to use alternative recovery methods that could help you to retrieve at least some portion of the lost data. Otherwise, you could also lose your money, along with the files. One of the best tools that could restore at least some of the encrypted files –  Data Recovery Pro.
