What is the Comodo Anti-Malware Shared Space
Last Updated 4 years ago

The Comodo Anti-malware Shared Space is a virtual hard drive. Programs and files that may be suspicious can safely be opened within Shared Space as it is isolated from the rest of your computer.

  • Applications running in the container are not allowed to write to your local drive for security reasons. Instead, they write all data, and save all files, to a virtual drive.
