You only have to browse old forum history to find the answer is yes, many products just seem to be abandoned.  Then discontinued.  :-\

And if you browse any software companies archives, you'll find abandoned, redundant, discontinued or retired applications.

It happens. It's the nature of the industry to continually progress. The price of progress is that not everything can move forward with you. Sad, but true.
As your mums would say, "If you can't play nice with all the other kiddies, go home".

Comodo Memory Firewall(Buffer Overflow Protection),   - Intergrated CIS / CAV / CFW
Safesurf,  -  I believe still available or is it another product i'm thinking of
Trusttoolbar (Discontinued) -  Bundled with Ask.Com, Didn't like very much ; discontinued

Jacob, will all respect, all the other products were integrated. CTM is a different, standalone, technology, not related to antimalware/firewall/HIPS directly.
We're all frustrated with this Comodo policy. They bought the code, they released it for free, they messed it (instable all the times, users lost everything), they give up...
I wouldn't expect it from a development team.

I have CTM version 2.6 on two machines XP 64 Bit and Windows 7 64 Bit NO PROBLEMS AT ALL ON EITHER MACHINE. I've been told the reason they stoped any defragging with 2.8 is the defrag program would put the fragmented files in the space for the snapshots and it quickly filled the space. I think I found a fix for this after doing a defrag I delete all unlocked timestamps and the space doesn't seem to fill up. Now this only works if you have CTM version 2.6 on your machine and not 2.8.

I forgot my wife has version 2.6 on her Vista 64 bit laptop no problems. Oh my other two machines I have CTM version 2.6 on the XP 64 bit and the windows 7 premium 64 bit are desktop machines. And no problems on any of them. And CTM has saved me so many times I've lost count how many times it pulled my fat out of the fire. I think version 2.6 is great. I don't like 2.8.

horrible troubles.   continually running out of space.  This forum has helped me be cautious of uninstalling it.  I will disable and make sure my backup clone, and acer recovery hidden partition is back first.
I'm running Vista on 32 bit machine.  with a TB over 2 Ext HDs in addition to the 250 gb Acer laptop. 
  I am most worried about CTm's unpredictable effect on those external HDs.  The program goes in and wipes the windows values on the backup, and files I don't have in synchronization.  If I leave the HDDs unhooked up when rebooting--  that seems to work. 
I've had to make sure of mywriting by copying onto CD's  I"m a one woman shop.  this has been a terror.
I so wish I had just cloned with Western Digital or gone to get Esaeus.

Below is a comment I put on a software site-- where many people were cursing this program.  It has spilled over in my feeling about Comodo in general.  I hate incompetence.  So that even in firewall protection, I am going to Kaspersky.  And have been using Panda, threat fire and a good vpn until I can get squared away.

The program misreads memory.  and will flash that damned screen about low space every second.. and will override you to go to restart.  Then it will fail to snap a shot or to defrag because it has no space.  And there are 100gb available locally?  That the heck would it have cost to make a provision to re-allocate additional space, if it is available?  I was a bored PL/1 programmer back in the day.  This allocation issue would have occurred to me, believe me.  Disgust

----------------------------------   what I posted elsewhere

See the CTM forum.  Beware uninstalling it.  Just disable it. and get your full clone  (esaeus.  ultimate boot cd-- free)


It has a very bad habit of misreading hte amt of space.  Forum says old version used to allow 30-60 and more snapshots.  I can tell you-- after a few, it tells you there is no more room.  no way to re-allocate more space to the snapshot.
begins to corrupt windows, as other people have commented.
I had 50 gb each avail on C and D.

Worse-- IT DOES NOT  protect your external drives!  and it will go in there and corrupt the data.  the manual is skimpy.  there is no in depth coverage of what is best to do.  If i leave my backup Tb drive out of the loop-- sleep the machine and then do a restart:  I'm stuck with CTm having wiped my backup C files (even tho the top level folder was renamed!

Stay away from this program.  It is incompetent.
Even on the CTM forum--  the Comodo techs stay away.  Speculation that it is abandoned software in the company.

Backup really important files onto a CD before you work to get rid of this program.

I'm doing this now.  grief.  wish me luck.  and good luck to you

You can't pause the driver. You can pause the snapshot making... but it is not enough. Uninstallation is the only way.

Holotribe, Which version of CTM you'd used ?   Version 2.8 ?

I have experienced no know problems upon installation of CTM version 2.5.129464.157.  This version remains, has not been updated since it's installation after a fresh install XP on a fresh WD internal HD.  I have taken only one snap shot since installing the program, and this was after service packs and all updates, along with a few choice programs were installed.

I divided the fresh internal HD into 2 partitions, allowing CTM to monitor only the partition containing the OS.  I have kept pretty much all things off of the partition containing the OS and keep everything I care about on the other partition and external HD's.  I did this under the impression i would not have to fresh install in the event of a OS crash, virus, etc.. and simply hit the home key upon boot and start over from the snapshot.

After reading some of the threads related to CTM over the months, I have a few questions..

1) does CTM cause problems with connected external drives?  Should I be concerned of loss or corruption of data on those drives in the event of a system crash, or by simply updating CTM?

2) does CTM cause problems if the HD it is installed on is removed from the PC, and replaced with a new HD?  would replacing the HD CTM is installed on effect the functionality of the computer, external drives or partitions connected to it?

3) is using a defragmentation program a good or bad thing with CTM?  if bad, would simply right clicking and exiting the program before defragging make a difference?

Thanks for any feedback..

No.

System crash? Well... it won't be CTM fault...
Updating CTM, no.

2) does CTM cause problems if the HD it is installed on is removed from the PC, and replaced with a new HD?
No.

  would replacing the HD CTM is installed on effect the functionality of the computer, external drives or partitions connected to it?
Well... partitions in which HD? Which ones are protected by CTM, the new or the old ones?

3) is using a defragmentation program a good or bad thing with CTM?
Yes. They're incompatible technologies. You'll generate huge snapshots.

if bad, would simply right clicking and exiting the program before defragging make a difference?
No, the problem is the driver loaded before Windows. It's intrinsically related to the technology used.

Well... If version 2.5 is working for you, maybe you should keep it... CTM is not being developed anymore.

Sorry.. the disk in which the OS is on is the one with the partition. However, I meant to express, If I removed the internal disk containing the OS from a PC, and installed a new internal disk with fresh install OS or different OS entirely, would this be a problem.. but you kinda answered this in q#2

Well... If version 2.5 is working for you, maybe you should keep it... CTM is not being developed anymore.
Like I said.. no problems that I know of. However, using audio workstations as I do, it is necessary to defrag every once in a while... so I guess my final question about the program, is, are there any special steps to take should I uninstall it?  will uninstalling screw up system?

P.S. Thanks for the quick responses.

Backup all your documents, data, etc.

It shouldn't. But I don't know anything about version 2.5 anymore... Remember, s*** happens (or could happen).

Interesting that some people are reporting older versions being better than the last official one. We've been holding out for the new version (which now sounds like 'never'). Have been thinking anout trialling the last beta, but should we really be consider using an older version, as counter-intuitive as it sounds. What are the difficulties with older versions we are likely to encounter? Is it a lot slower to snapshot or rollback for example, or other issues to take into account?

We experienced installation fail with last official version on some models of laptop, just to put into context why why are not using that.

Also had issue with my mother-in-laws laptop that i put it on, that her laptop failed to boot a few months after I installed it (not sure if CTM was to blame) but I couldn't retrieve some of her most recent files from her laptop until I uninstalled CTM!
