Cleaner_Validator.exe
« on: November 06, 2010, 05:19:04 PM »
Hi,

What is the job of this process?

Is only for "Active Clean" feature? If yes, shouldn't be turn off automatically if I turn off the "Active Clean"?

And sometimes use a lot of CPU...

Thanks

I don't think it's related to Active Clean features. I assume it's CSC's startup engine or something like that.

I experience the same thing as you do (with the cpu-usage).

This process only appears to have become evident with version 3.0. In my case it is using so much CPU that my PC has become unstable and is closing down automatically to prevent damage.

I've had to revert to version 2.0 and am in contact with Comodo about this.

Refer to my comments in the thread started by Gordonia about CSC 3.0 causing his PC to become unstable.

Hello,

 I also have an issue with this:

Every time this computer is loading the rest of Windows on the desktop,
 I get this "error report" (2 times in a row) of 'Cleaner_Validator.exe' having been stopped.

Since I see there's said it might stop because of a CPU-overload,
 I take it my slower CPU causes the same issue and I should perhaps also revert to V2?

I must say though, this didn't happen before.
And I recently had a terrible virus which COMODO Anti-Virus didn't catch and it was too late.
So now I'm having all kinds of issues, but it's about the 'Cleaner_Validator.exe'-process right now.


Do you have any advice on how to fix this?
Cause for one, this process doesn't run at all anymore after it crashed,
 plus I don't know if it's supposed to run or only for startup or something.
And if it is supposed to run, who knows my COMODO-software is broken and my system not safe.

Can I do some kind of repair or something or should I just reinstall or install a different version even?


Greetings.

Further to my comments on 7th November, I have today received the following response from Comodo:

"There was indeed an issue with Cleaner_Validator using too much CPU, but this issue is already fixed and it will be included in the next release of Comodo System-Cleaner. Thank you for your support.

Technical Support"

In the meantime I suggest you uninstall version 3.0 and revert to version 2.

I have enough issues with trying to network Win7 to Vista to XPPro and a Mac......without my registry "cleaner" causing more grief than it's worth.

I'm removing the entire program until I read somewhere that they've fixed this problem.

Not a threat.......just a 'heads up' to the development crew. (I LOVED this product before updating last week!)

Why is 'cleaner_validator.exe' consuming resources when it's not needed?

I have chosen to uninstall Comodo and until an answer is provided, it will remain uninstalled...►good-bye!◄

Hello again fellow sufferers.

I was assured only today by Comodo Support that version 3.0.172695.53 could be safely installed without any Cleaner_Validator.exe issues. Not true. This dangerous executable is still using inordinate amounts of CPU to the point where my PC is shutting down with the blue screen of death and warnings that to protect my PC any recently installed software needs to be uninstalled!

I've reported this back to Comodo Support and told them that I shall again be reverting to version 2.0 until this issue gets properly resolved once and for all.

This process is the real time part of CSC. It monitors the file system and registry for items to clean so when you open CSC it already lists the files that need cleaning and you don't need to scan to find them. It is also used by active clean to remove these files and registry keys as they are created.

Every few minutes it will jump up to 25% CPU usage ( I presume using one full core on my system). I guess this is because i have active clean enabled and it is deleting files etc. I haven't noticed any considerable slow down my self.

Cheers
Shaun

Thanks for explaining what cleaner_Validator.exe does:) 

clean_validator.exe use under small periods (a few seconds... I would say 3-5 seconds) 50% which can effect the computer's performance. That you can see if you play or work with a heavy application (such as CAD or anything alike).

Hello,

   Cleaner_Validator.exe only does it's job when the processor is idle. If anyone is using the core of the processor that Cleaner_Validator.exe is using, we wait until that job is done.

if clean_validator is causing high cpu usage disable it and this how you disable it. Start ---> run, here you write services.msc. Find clean vaildator and right click on it and select properties and here you you choose disable.

Didn't find the process in there, but I found it in my win task manager, i have not tried to disable it there before checking back with those of you who know!

What is the function of cleaner_validator.exe do and do I need to keep it?

I do not have fast access and at times its like going back to dialup.
Would any other progs interfere with validator?
