I thought that including "Create rules for safe applications" automatically made the rules, which you could manually edit later. Other than this aren't all applications in Comodo's safelist automatically allowed complete access to your computer? The computer should be no more or less secure with this option checked. Right? (Please correct me if I'm wrong)
You are right.
I checked that option so I can see the rules that are created and modify something if I think there is a need for that.
For example if that option is not checked, internet browser is set to allow everything outbound.
In this case I just modify it to use predefined policy for Web Browsers.
Other reason is that I want to see all apps that are using internet access.
Also, with setting the alert settings to high, does this mean you will be alerted to more applications or you will get more alerts for each program? What I'd like to do is minimize the number of alerts you get, but maximize the security. If each program only gets one alert than this should be sufficient. (Once again, correct me if I'm wrong)
More alerts for each program (for every port that program is using)
However, I can't notice more alerts than Low setting because Auto-Create rules is doing that job.
As I can see, difference is with Auto-Create rules, with default Low setting Comodo create rule which allow outbound for every port, with High setting it creates rules for outbound just for ports that program is trying to use.
With Very High setting you will have all that but with every IP address app is trying to connect.
