How to configure Comodo Internet Security?
« on: January 29, 2009, 03:58:00 AM »
My home PC running Windows Vista Home Basic Service Pack 1 is equipped with Comodo Internet Security 3.5.57173.439 (firewall and defense+ security).  In addition, I have Comodo BOClean Anti-Malware 4.7, Comodo Memory Firewall 2.0.4.20 and avast! Home Edition 4.8.1296.

The current Comodo Internet Security (CIS) has the following options available for my configuration:

1.  Proactive Security
2.  Internet Security
3.  Antivirus Security
4.  Firewall Security

It seems to me that details of the configuration are not mentioned in the CIS "Help".

I appreciate it much if any Comodo member will soon indicate which configuration is appropriate for my home PC.

Hello AChung.

Comodo Preset Configurations

By default Comodo Internet Security has four preset configurations available. Based on the installation option you have selected during setup, one of these choices is set as  ACTIVE CONFIGURATION by default.  You are able to switch between configurations at any time by right-clicking on the CIS tray icon.

Click the links below to find out more details on each configuration:

COMODO - Internet Security   
COMODO - Proactive Security
COMODO -Antivirus Security
COMODO - Firewall Security



Important Note: Any changes you have made to the Comodo Internet Security settings since installation are recorded in this, active profile.

The detailed descriptions of the default security levels provided by the four preset choices are given below:

COMODO - Proactive Security -  This configuration turns CIS into the ultimate protection machine. All possible protections are activated and all critical COM interfaces and files are protected. During the setup, if only Comodo Firewall installation option is selected, the next screen allows users to select this configuration as default CIS configuration. If selected, Firewall is always set to Safe mode. But according to the malware scanning results performed during the setup process, if no malware is found, Defense+ is set to Clean PC mode. Otherwise, the default is Safe mode.

COMODO - Internet Security - This configuration is activated by default, when both Antivirus and Firewall components are installed, i.e. the complete installation. Firewall is always set to Safe mode. But according to the malware scanning results performed during the setup process, if no malware is found, Defense+ is set to Clean PC mode. Otherwise, the default is Safe mode. In this mode,

Image Execution Control is disabled.

Computer Monitor/Disk/Keyboard/DNS Client access/Window Messages are NOT monitored.

Only commonly infected files/folders are protected against infection.

Only commonly exploited COM interfaces are protected.

Defense+ is tuned to prevent infection of the system.

If you wish to switch to Proactive Security option, you can select the option using Manage My Configurations interface.

COMODO - Antivirus Security - This configuration is activated by default, when you have chosen to install only the Antivirus component and selected optimum protection settings for Defense+. According to the malware scanning results performed during the setup process, if no malware is found, Defense+ is set to Clean PC mode. Otherwise, the default is Safe mode. In this mode,

Image Execution Control is disabled.

Computer Monitor/Disk/Keyboard/DNS Client Access/Window Messages/Protected COM Interfaces/Windows Hooks are NOT monitored.

Only commonly infected files/folders are protected against infection.

Only commonly exploited COM interfaces are protected.

Defense+ is tuned to prevent infection of the system while creating least number of Defense+ popup alerts.

If you wish to switch to Proactive Security option, you can select the option using Manage My Configurations interface.
COMODO - Firewall Security - This configuration is activated when the user chooses to install Firewall only and selects optimum protection settings for Defense+ . Firewall is always set to Safe mode. But according to the malware scanning results performed during the setup process, if no malware is found, Defense+ is set to Clean PC mode. Otherwise, the default is Safe mode.

Image Execution Control checks only applications that are not started manually by the user.

Computer Monitor/Disk/Keyboard is NOT monitored.

Only commonly infected files/folders are protected against infection.

Only commonly exploited COM interfaces are protected.

Defense+ is tuned to prevent infection of the system and detect Internet access request leaks even if it is infected.

If you wish to switch to Proactive Security option, you can select the option using Manage My Configurations interface.
