Is Comodo 7 a good anti-virus program? I already downloaded it. . . should I get Norton or a different anti-virus program?

It's good, but not the easiest antivirus to use in the world. If you really want to replace it I recommend Avast.

Don't worry, Norton's bad anyway :P

I remember my friend had a lot of hassle with it, it wouldn't let her download programs that are known by most people to be safe (steam for example) and also did some weird stuff to her firewall IIRC. Mind you, this was quite a few years ago (2008ish I believe), so they might've fixed that up by now.

I'd go with the Australian's recommendation of avast but also pair it with malwarebytes, they're two great programs that work well together!

It's great if you like to manage all the details... Comodo has far more settings than most

Is Comodo 7 a good anti-virus program?

Comodo is in the doghouse right now. Comodo's PrivDog (which is installed alongside Comodo Internet Security) has been identified as part of the Superfish/Komodia clusterfsck which compromises SSL/TLS security on your laptop. Insanely, installing this "privacy" application will actually make it easier for malicious actors to make counterfeit sites appear legitimate.
