I'm completely cheesed of with the way comodo conducts it's business on my own computer.
the main reason today is that despite disabling everything in on the context menu on my xp, the scanner is still running and adding false positives to quarantine. nothing i can do will stop it. and i can't even stop the service when i want to. "access is denied" GRRR....
By context menu, do you mean the options that pop-up if you right-click on the CIS tray icon?
If you select Disable
for any of the modules in CIS, they are in fact disabled. However, disabling these will not stop a scan in progress.
Edit: D+ will still have some functionality when disabled from the tray icon, but can be disabled permanently from within the GUI.
I added an entire folder to the exclusions, but it had already deleted the file is had wrongly identified as a threat.
CIS doesn't delete things unless you tell it to do so. The file would be in quarantine.
the interface is misleading and unclear. A users choice to disable something should do exactly that, not do as you frickin please!! especially when you comodo get the false positives so glaringly wrong andf then can't even bother giving it a classification or description. The incompetencies are astounding!!!
Disable does in fact mean disable, as I've already stated. If you're interested in reporting the false positives, they are fixed by Comodo in a pretty timely manner.
unclassified malware is not a threat. it's not even classified as a threat or malware. it's just something comodo wants to look at..
If it looks like malware, it's always a good idea to check it out...
oooh and that's another thing.. the logs it transmits back when comodo "phones home" is also not clearly declared to end users. It contains alot more than some would deem necessary. get your wireshark out folks and look exactly at what is being transmitted.
Comodo does have a cloud component. This can be disabled. I'm really not sure how clearly the cloud concept needs to be declared to end users. Options like, Enable cloud scanning
, and Submit unknown files for analysis
seem fairly self explanatory.
COMODO is malware. as i type this comodo is using 50% with EVERYTHING disabled. (including defense+ permanently disabled). Uninstalled and formatting the disk. Comodo = Spyware/malware/poorware.
If Comodo is using 50% (of your CPU cycles I'm assuming...) with everything disabled, then there is something wrong with your installation. (Unless perhaps a scan is running, as it sounds like there may be)
