N.B. Questions and observations are in bold.
I downloaded CAVS 2 this morning and installed it on out test PC at work - Novell backend, semi-controlled desktop, 138K files - very untidy box. We uninstall AVG, rebooted and installed CAVS2 and did a further reboot.
The PC started up with a slightly noticeable lag. The creation ofhte user DB seemed to take FOREVER, but this may have been caused by the HIPS in CAVS 2 popping up about the myriad of startup objects on this box. It’s funny that when I clicked on remember and submit in the HIPS pop-up, straight after I did, a second poop-up appeared telling me that the object I just accepted was in the user DB.
Does this mean that it is just confirming that it has just added it, based on my input?
After getting through the initial flurry of HIPS pop-ups, it has been silent for the past two hours, even with the PC under heavy usage. There’s no noticeable lag in the running applications and scan speed it very good (138K files in 32 minutes - better than CAVS 1 and comparable to AVG, Panda and better than CrapAffee).
After completing a system scan, it reported that there were large numbers of files that were not in the Comodo safelist. I ticked “Select All” and then submit. After an inordinately long delay, the files status changed to “Added to list” (or similar wording).
There was no really clear indicator that the files had actually been submitted.
These was no really clear indicator whether these files were being submitted to the usr DB or whether they were being submitted to Comodo.
I’ve poked around the Comodo AntiVirus folder and can’t find CAVCONS.EXE or its version 2 equivalent?
Does this mean there is no command line utility for CAVS2?
Other than these, it has been a relatively seamless upgrade to V2. Performance is better than V1, HIPS is working well (will throw a few sneaky bits at it over the weekend and report back) and its generally unnoticeable (which is how it should be).
Looking good so far, but I do think a command line utility is needed for emergency work, particularly if we have to do emergency work on someone else’s PC that doesn’t have CAVS 2.
