Great question Eric regarding indexing. Personally, I turn indexing off. Some say that is improper due to performance issues, but I do it for the very reason you stated Eric, it sure adds a lot of scanning, etc. and use of resources after indexing is done. I also adjusted “Prefetch” options in registry to just fetch boot files and this has tamed the “Superfetch” service. Performance issues have not really been noticed at least for me.
Just a thought its123, as Eric mentioned about the indexing…a few months ago when I stopped this service, made a big difference in background activity. Disk reads will be reduced if indexing is turned off, and also as Eric mentioned, adjusting AV scanner to stateful. I use ‘on access’, but that is my choice. In your case, Stateful may be best in addition to stopping indexing.
Also, here is some info. regarding the file you mentioned:
I don’t know, I reinstalled comodo to last version and I still get this message about MSCTF.dll, there is any solution? (I see threads dating as old as 5 years ago on this issue)
edit: I managed to “fix” this by a workaround adding it into hook exception of some sort, but it created more problems with other applications than I was willing to fix so in the meantime and until this bug gets sorted, I’ll be using Private Firewall, I hope Comodo gets back soon, because I like it.
