To reduce hassle you don't get sandbox notifications on subsequent occasions when you run a sandboxed file, but you do get log entries. So you can always look at the log. Or you can look in unrecognized files. Or you can look in the active process list, if the file is still running.
I believe I MAY have had a notification when installing THE FIRST OF MANY Addons to Palemoon.
The installation was successful because it did not attempt to alter anything Comodo considered vital.
Regrettably subsequent Addons DID attempt to alter things that Comodo prevented,
but there were zero notifications.
I previously used 32 bit Firefox.
Now I was trying 64 bit Palemoon with the knowledge that some Addons might fail on a 64 bit browser.
Comodo caused me to email LastPass support for advice on why their Addon was failing on 64 bit Palemoon.
You don't get sandbox notifications if a file is sandboxed because it is running in the context of another file which is sandboxed. But again you do get log entries. And you can see this happening in the active process list.
So if you want to get alerts every time CIS intervenes the best thing is to switch the sandbox off.
I am not happy with silent refusal to obey orders.
I prefer to be explicitly told when there is a problem.
I am not prepared to keep the active Process list on permanent display.
Because Comodo practiced dumb insolence the only advice I received upon the Macrium failure was to run some VSS tool in Debug mode.
I have wasted several hours due to Comodo protecting me from myself and saying nothing.
Re always trusting trusted files, this is not a safe thing to do. Trusted files run by trusted files are trusted. Trusted files run by untrusted files are not. This is because malware could use a trusted file to perform a malcious action.
I recognize that Malware could perform damage if it controlled CMD.EXE,
But do not see any danger if it ran my script to create a partition image.
I find that my *.BAT scripts are listed as Unrecognized.
Do I simply move them to Trusted Files so they will avoid aggravation ?
Do my *.BAT files lose trusted status if they are edited or relocated for execution from a different location ?
What happens if I tick the box "Hide these Alerts" ?
Does it mean I will never again see any such alert regardless of the specific unrecognized file that caused the notice,
or does it mean that this specific file will never again cause such an alert.
What happens to an unrecognized file if I click "Remove" ?
Will it give me one more notification the next time I run the file - or will it be crippled / rmoved / never to run again ?
Incidentally, I cannot get any on-line help.
I have clicked on the Help button on the MORE Tab.
I refuse to allow I.E.8 and Active 'X to run - does Comodo depend upon these security hazards
