http://help.comodo.com/topic-72-1-766-11485-Miscellaneous-Settings.html just turn off the Show alerts if applications try to change your browser settings option

I appreciate that will stop the alert, but it's a pity more information isn't given in the alert to let users know what exactly is being changed.

The alert is for when any application attempts to open any setting/configuration/profile file that belongs to FF, Chrome, or IE in read & write mode. It is a generic alert that unfortunately doesn't provide exact details.

If CIS provides popup alert and you deactivate it in settings > advanced protection > miscellaneous > uncheck , I would think this would prevent any other possibly 'important' Alerts (other than Chrome)?

The question is, WHY is this occurring.  What is driving it.  It's a shame that Comodo doesn't have the ability to scope out more helpful information.

So after looking at Chrome update history wiki it looks like there was an update 72 on 29 Jan which coincides with when the issue started, and I never had any comodo prompt with chrome 71.

Hi. I, recently, updated Chrome browser to the newest version and everytime i open it get this message... ( It says, Chrome.exe is trying to change current configuration of your browser )



I already asked Chrome and they say Chrome is not trying to change anything at all.

Hi.

After updating Chrome I keep getting the following message:

"chrome.exe is trying to change the current settings of your browser"

No matter which option I click, I keep getting the message everytime I launch the browser.

The Logs do not specify anything further either.

Thank's didn't see that.

Unfotunatley there is no solution suggested, only to turn off the alerts.

It would be nice if Comodo was able to display what exactly is causing this so it could be better investigated.

I will continue this in the linked topic.

After updating Chrome I am now also getting this.

I agree, turning off the alerts is not a solution.

I would like to know what is causing it also so I can fix the cause instead of the symptoms.

I do not have CCleaner and can't think of any other software that would be suddenly trying to change browser settings.

Hello,

Ever since I updated Google Chrome (64-bit) to 72.0.3626.81, I'm getting this popup from "Comodo Browser Protection" every single time I open the browser.


I don't want to turn off the alerts to show unwanted changes in browsers under Advanced Protection

Windows 10 Pro 64bit - 1809 (17763.292)

Comodo Firewall - 11.0.0.6744

Google Chrome 64-bit - 72.0.3626.81

This from the Chrome Help pages . . maybe of use

Sometimes, programs that you install can change your Chrome settings without you knowing. For your safety, the browser checks if your settings have been changed every time you launch Chrome. If Chrome notices that something’s not right in your settings, it will automatically go back to the original settings.
Settings that might automatically get reset:
  • Default search engine
  • Homepage
  • Start-up pages
  • Pinned tabs
  • Extensions
After updating Chrome I am now also getting this.

I agree, turning off the alerts is not a solution.

Thanks Ploget :)

As I say though I don't know of any application on my computer that would try to do that. All extensions are disabled and the only thing that started these alerts (just like the users above) was to update to Chrome 72.

Every time I open Chrome, Comodo warns me that Chrome is trying to change my browser settings. How do I find out what they are trying to change, and why? I keep rejecting the changes, but I'm scared they might be security updates and I'm making myself unsafe.

Same thing here, very annoying. Still no fix?
