Today I discovered another bug: CIS doesn’t show all active processes.
In the summary tab it says that 75 applications are running, but if I go to Active Process List only about 30 are shown.
In the Task Manager all are being displayed correctly.
Vista Home Premium 64bit SP1 (with all patches installed, except two)
Avira Antivir Personal, BOclean 4.27, CIS, CMF, SafeSurf, Windows Defender
Don’t know (:SAD)
Switching configurations doesn’t solve this; a reboot probably does but haven’t tried it yet
UPDATE: Rebooting seems to have fixed this.
Firewall set to Safe Mode, Defense+ to Clean PC Mode (Proactive Security; IE catalogues added to My Blocked Files)
Hasn’t happened (yet).
Administrator account with UAC disabled
Hope this helps!
PS Please count if the number of applications displayed in the Active Processes List matches the number shown in the Summary tab on your computers.
I see you have 38 programs waiting for your review. AMay be there are counted as well (approx 30 + 38 could be the total of 75? Go to my pending files and first purge files. Then for the ones left after purging either delete them or make them trusted.
The files I’ve got in My Pending Files are Avira’s updates for the most part and update files of other programs. And yes I do purge them every now and then.
At the time of my writing the second post applications innitiated by explorer.exe (and explorer.exe itself) were not displayed (which is strange, isn’t it?)
Yes, if I delete/move the files listed in My Pending Files the counter goes down to 0, I hope that’s what you wanted me to do, at least.(:TNG)
On second thoughts, I realized that I might not have understood you correctly EricJH. Could you be more specific about which counter you meant? (the one indicating how many applications are running or the one telling me how many apps are “waiting for my review”)
In my previous post I meant the second counter, the first one is working fine and a correct number of processes is being displayed.
Thanks and sorry for my possible misunderstanding of your post.
I meant the counter of the number of active applications in the Summary screen. I wondered if when flushing the Pending files list would bring down the count in the active applications (In the Summary screen).
I’ve never had your exact problem, but ever since the last update, every now and then when I view the currently running processes in CIS, “explorer.exe” is sometimes missing and the programs that are usually shown that have been started by explorer.exe (e.g. firefox.exe, cfp.exe, etc.) are just listed there (not shown as started by anything). Maybe this is related to your problem.
Vista Home Premium + SP1 (32bit), UAC Off
CIS 3.5, Custom Policy, Paranoid Mode; MS WD
The problem you are refering to I have it too. For this one I know when it happens (or at least thats what I think). When this happens to me its when explorer.exe ends unexpectedly for some kind of problem and then executes again.
This has happened to me not only with the last update of Comodo but with the ones before.
CIS (.509), Avira Antivir Personal (latest version; on-demand only), Windows Defender (real-time), MBAM, SAS->both on demand only; portable ccleaner
Firewall settings: Safe Mode; stealth my ports to everyone, protect the ARP cache, block gratuitous ARP frames, first three boxes checked in the “Miscellaneous” tab, keep an alert on screen for 600sec.
Defense+ settings: Clean PC Mode; image execution control set to normal, detect schellcode injections checked, trust the applications digitally signed by TSV, every box checked in “Monitor Settings”, keep an alert on screen for 600sec.
7. I’m not on a virtual system. Proactive configuration. Windows Firewall is disabled. Administrator account with UAC disabled. I’m on proactive configuration.
Anything else is at default settings.
