Protected Helper Service
« on: June 22, 2019, 10:32:36 AM »
Hello,

until now only COMODO Internet Security Helper Service was running as a windows service (Windows 10).
A second service has recently been added: COMODO Internet Security Protected Helper Service.
Now two Comodo services are running.
Is this necessary, what is the "Protected" service for ?

I have just deactivated the Protected Helper Service because it has never been running.

Can you tell me something about it?

Thank you very much
CHristian

Thank you.
But, do you know or do you believe it?

My Security Center is completely shut down. I don't use the defender, the virus & threat protection or the firewall. I don't use any Windows internal protection.
So, do I need the Protected Helper Service at all?

I'm not sure why you would prevent a component of CIS from running without first knowing what it does.

If Comodo has included a new service, it is clearly there for a reason.

That is the reason for my question to which I have unfortunately not yet received a qualified answer.
Did you even know that this new service exists?

I don't just accept everything just because it's pre-set, I also question things running on my computer. That's all.
I want to keep my PC and the services running on it as lean as possible.
As much as necessary - as little as possible.

But I don't want to start a discussion, I just want to know something about the background of the new service " COMODO Internet Security Protected Helper Service".

That's why I already wrote to Comodo who wanted to establish a remote connection with me via GeekBuddy. Why?

So, does anyone have any real knowledge about this?

The Protected Helper Service is a requirement to work with Windows 10.
