I do not use GeekBuddy and do not have it installed.
Comodo Internet Security is my personal choice for my computers. I have been using Comodo Internet Security for many years now and have found it to be just as good if not better than other brands for the features included even in the free version.
I also would recommend for some users installing Comodo Dragon (Google Chrome Based) and / or Comodo IceDragon (Firefox Based) along with the virtual desktop and other required files if you visit sites or do searches online.
I have had viruses, malware, spyware infect my computer in the past just by searching with any search engine or downloading files from other sources. With Comodo Internet Security I can run unknown files in the Sandbox or run the virtual web browser to help protect the computer from Malware, Viruses & Spyware
Also when installing Comodo Internet Security I Recommend using there DNS servers when setting it up. This gives you some additional protection when surfing the web.
As with any software pay attention to all the options that are presented to you during the installation process. You will be given options of what to install. Some default settings will make changes to your computer. If you don’t want certain features installed be sure to uncheck them when installing.

However, you can use it anytime to scan for malware if your computer isn’t working properly or you clicked a suspicious link online or in an email message.
Comprehensive protection – Microsoft Security Essentials helps defend your computer against viruses, worms, Trojans, and other malicious software and provides you with free spyware protection.
Easy to get, easy to use – Microsoft Security Essentials is available at no cost, so there’s no registration process that requires billing or personal information collection.
