I actually found this post from a mod in another thread from 2009:
Comodo has performed something of a balancing act regarding the Trusted Vendors List.The primary purpose is to reduce the large number of popups for safe applications,which was the major complaint with the earlier versions of CFP and CIS.Since it's easy enough to turn off automatic safelisting IMO Comodo has managed to keep the majority happy.
Great so piss off eveyone who didn't mind the popups.
I personally liked knowing when things were accessing my memory.
Thanks to the trusted vendor list, a trojan dropper signed by trend micro inc. was able to work successfully (good job Comodo!). When you add a trusted vendor list, all it does is provide one giant security hole for droppers which are falsely signed
Don't flip with your program, you had it good before. All the keymashing reres who don't want to know whats happening to their computers can stfu and go buy a mac IMO.
I picked Comodo because it was the best security software out there, and the programmers didn't have their heads up their asses when vista came out.
Give me back my security alert popups please, removing trusted vendors (such a large list) now takes me a ridiculous amount of time. Also, allow me to prevent Comodo from adding to it.
