Please add an option into 'Program Settings / Program Appearance' which would allow to always show the GUI in 'Advanced' mode.

Also, please fix the GUI so that it could be properly displayed on systems using 120 DPI (rather than default 96 DPI).

I've said it before many times and I'll say it again to all of the Comodo developers and QA:

Test with 120 DPI - very simple and easy to do.
 
No reason why these kind of problems need to be present in a final product.

Please add a checked box option to the Settings whereby missed scheduled tasks are run automatically when the computer starts up or comes out of stand-by.

Also, the option to add a CTM scheduled task to Windows Task Scheduler.

Thank you.

Since CTM doesn't do imaging.
How about some type of remote storage in case, there's a drive failure.
It's hard being a crooked Admin when the files won't pass an md5checksum test.  But like any other good crooked Admin it can be done, it just takes time(and lots of it) and a few aspirins

Make it so that Defraggers and Chkdsk are able to be used without problems.

I do have one more wish.  I got this idea when restoring back in time

While the snapshot, keeps things the way they were.  It should let the anti-virus database update in the snap shot.  That way, when you go back in time, Everything will go back to the way it was except the anti-virus defenitions

1)  There would be less load from the update servers
2)  People with dial-up will be happy (less complaints)
3)  comodo would save money and bandwith by not having people needing to re-download over again

You can do this already by excluding the folder containing the AV DB.  ;)

Some people might want to back up the whole system including updates to anti-virus just in case where something goes wrong. IMHO it should stay the way it is now, if someone wants to keep current virus database then he/she can synchronize the file before restoring snapshot or add it to exclusion list.

Support for Linux so I (and others) can install CTM for use with Windows XP partitions.

Synchronisation of folders/files occurs AFTER snapshot restore has completed, not before. If it was synced BEFORE restoration, the restoration would then overwrite the supposedly sync'ed folders/files.

As I understand it, the selected snapshot is restored and then the sync'ed folders/files are overlaid from the latest snapshot (the one containing the newest iteration of the folders/files).

Ewen :-)

You're right. My mistake.

Raid 0 support. Shouldn't be too hard to make because with some raid chipsets CTM runs without any flaws if you force installation.
