Comodo Programs Manager

31 Lug/10

Comodo Programs Manager replicates and extends the functionality of the Windows Uninstall A Program Control Panel applet. The free software application offers several maintenance related tasks, including uninstallation of programs, drivers, services, Windows features and updates.

The interface displays the maintenance tasks on the left sidebar. Selecting an entry displays its contents in the main window, this are for instance all installed programs if the Programs task is selected, or all installed updates if Windows Updates is selected.

The functionality in the programs group is a bit disappointing, as it is only possible to uninstall programs with the build in uninstaller. Users who are looking for leftover scans after uninstallation will not find that feature implemented in Comodo Programs Manager.

The drivers and services section lumps drivers and Windows Services together in one big list, and offers to uninstall ALL of them. Now, we are not entirely sure if it is indeed possible to remove essential Windows drivers and services with a click, but the uninstall button was active on every item. This could be potentially disastrous for the operating system.

Windows Features offers the exact same functionality as its Windows pendant. Features can be installed or uninstalled easily, a Windows DVD or CD may be required to do so.

Windows Updates finally lists all installed updates. Each maintenance group offers a search form to locate specific entries.

The backup functionality that is integrated in the program did not work on our Windows 7 Professional 64-bit system needs to be activated in the program’s settings before it can be used.

Comodo Programs Manager is an easy to use program, but that’s almost the only selling point. Specialized programs like Revo Uninstaller, and the standard Windows applications offer the same or a better functionality. They are also not putting the operating system at risk by offering to uninstall core components.

Users who still want to try the application can download it at the official Comodo website.

Update: We have apparently overlooked two additional features offered by the application. Comodo Programs Manager can create custom setups for applications so that those programs can be deployed on other systems. The software also monitors program installations and system changes, keeps track of them and offers complete uninstallation options. All setup files are automatically scanned with a cloud-based antivirus engine. Thanks Zachary for pointing that out.
