Comodo Antivirus -The Summary Screen
The 'Summary' screen is shown by default when you open the application. It provides an at-a-glance summary of protection and update status as well as allowing you to quickly run a virus scan with a single click. You can access this area at any time by selecting the 'Summary' tab as shown in General Navigation.
Individual files can be scanned for virus by dragging them into the scan area.
The summary screen contains the following information:
The shield icon on left-hand strip of the interface is a highly visible heads-up on your current protection level. In the example above, we see a yellow icon indicating that there are actions you need to take (run a full scan). Once you have done this (and providing 'Real Time Scanning is not disabled), the shield icon should turn green and display the message 'All systems are active and running'
The Antivirus summary box contains:
