Add an optional HIPS 'Clean PC' + Paranoid combination [M1027]

1. What version of CIS, or Comodo Firewall, are you currently using:
Comodo Internet Security 7.0.312140.4101 RC

2. What actually happened or you saw
Currently the Paranoid HIPS setting will ask you about EVERYTHING which can completely stop the computer from working correctly, for example black screens, OS crashing and general freezing of the OS.

3. What you wanted to happen or see
My idea is an additional ruleset/mode that is basically Paranoid mode and Clean PC combined which means all currently installed files will be allowed but all new files will trigger alerts even if the files are known.

4. Why you think it is desirable
This would a) Fix issues coming from blocking Windows system files, b) It would add another mode that users can use that might be more what they want than the current modes and c) The HIPS rules list wouldn’t be filled with a tons of Windows system executables like ping.exe etc.

5. Any other information
This can somewhat be done by setting HIPS to Clean PC mode and turning off TVL… but then safe files won’t be stated as safe files in any alerts, they’ll be stated as unknown files, and the unrecognized files list will just become a big big pile and you’ll say “I’ll look through the several hundreds of files later” But you never do.

I would personally use this mode.

you can get the same effect by setting d+ to clean pc mode to build up the trusted files list then set it to paranoid mode but this could take some time. i like this idea

BTW you can vote for your own wishes

thanks captain i didnt see that response. i will re add my votes later

Please let me know which version of CIS you are currently using. I just changed the format slightly as I realized that was missing, and want to make sure each post if complete before moving.


Thank you for submitting this Wish Request. I have now reset the poll and moved this to the WAITING AREA.

Please be sure to vote for your own wish, and for any other wishes you also support. It is also worthwhile to vote against wishes you think would be a waste of resources, as implementing those may slow down the wishes you would really like to see added.

Thanks again.

I would like to thank everyone who has voted on this particular enhancement. As this wish has accumulated the necessary 15 points I have added this to the tracker for consideration by the devs. However, do note that even though this wish will be considered by the devs, it does not necessarily mean that it will be implemented. I will update this topic when I have any additional information.

Thank you.
