I just come over to Comodo Internet Security (CIS) recently. One thing that I like about it, is the ability to “dump” (or save) your configuration information. However, I couldn’t find a way to automate the process, within CIS itself, so I wrote a program to do this.
This program is free for use, and it can be downloaded from http://www.i-really-want-to-know.com, SOFTWARE section. The program allows you to specify the location where to save the configuration data.
You can run the program in three modes:
- Interactive: where it will prompt you to specify (by browsing) where you want it to be saved;
- Batch: You provide the location to save it on the command line;
- Command prompt: Same as batch
This program was developed for my use, because I use BAT files in conjunction with WINZIP to back up my system, and I wanted to make the process as seamless as possible.
You can get the program at: http://i-really-want-to-know.com/board2/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=114
DISCLAIMER: Comodo Group, Inc. in no way endorses or supplies support for this program. COMODO is a registered trademark of “Comodo Group, Inc.”
You could have saved yourself a whole mess of trouble if you had
- Opened CIS
- Clicked MISCELLANEOUS->MANAGE MY CONFIGURATIONS
These are obviously false positives. The program was scanned with Bitdefdender, Norton and Avast, with no issues. Friends of mine from around the country scan the same file (got it from the website), and they scanned it with AntiVir, AVG and Kaspersky independently, and they all were negative (just like the site you quoted).
As for the McAfee, I simply don’t trust them. When I got out of the service, I used Norton and McAfee to scan a computer. Norton found over 600, and McAfee found less then 300. The system was scanned with McAfee, first, and the files copied to floppy, then cleaned. I then ran Norton, and 300+ more showed up. These files were copied to floppy. This has been consistent for the past 10+ years (I kept the files on floppy, and have tested McAfee/Norton until a few years ago.
Now, look at McAfee-GW-Edition, one of then that flagged it. It is part of McAfee (confirmed though research on the net), and the other McAfee’s didn’t flag it. Let’s see inconsistency! Wow, false positives by this was even reported on McAfee:
POST #1 - “Dear users, I ran a free online McAfee scan which DID NOT yield malware for a file. Later a ran the same file with VIRUS TOTAL and it’s McAfee-GW edition reports the following: McAfee-GW-Edition 6.7.6 2009.05.09 Worm.Win32.Malware.gen!88 (suspicious) I really don’t know what to do and would appreciate your feedback.”
POST #2 - I represent the company VMProtect Software and our clients have many problems with McAfee-GW-Edition. McAfee-GW-Edition have false positives on all files protected by VMProtect (for example: http://www.virustotal.com/ru/analisis/b28014587b9c7ef6f725c58ae24d41dc ). Yesterday I sent e-mail (on email@example.com) but till now has not received the answer from you. How much time
POST #3 - When i use the API of “FindNextUrlCache Entry” in VisualBasic6 and make it as program. And use “McAfee-GW-Edition” scan this program It has found “Trojan.VB.Downloader.Gen” But this is a normal API,it’s a Erroneous judgement! What can i do to repair it?
POST #4 - hello, McAfee-GW-Edition reports our newly released product IObit Security 360 v1.01’s IS360Init.exe as Heuristic.BehavesLike.Win32.Trojan.L." Below is the scan result from virustotal.com. http://www.virustotal.com/zh-cn/analisis/2fc04d7b670be6e544756be5cbcc7aa97f6c5722d660dde5fc47c2c8db3850fd-1254668249 It must be 100% a false positive. Our software – IObit Security 360 is high-test
Now, look at K7AntiVirus. Although I never heard of them before today, they seem to have a substandard website. I tried to download their software over a broadband connection, and it never finished after 30 minutes! This makes me question their software/company as a whole. I had downloaded other files from other websites right after this, and they came down fast. I tried K7 again, and the results were the same. So it isn’t my connection, but K7.
So simply, I wouldn’t trust the virustool.com website, let alone the second rate virus scanners. I classify McAfee as second rate, because of the above (the posts, plus personal experience).
Yes, I’m fully aware of this, but this allows you to run it in batch mode (what I mainly wrote it for), here is an example of it in action (this is at command prompt), but the command can be entered into a BAT file (BAT files drive my backups). The command window is what I’m typing in, the rest is the program running. Here is an example of it running.

You can save the various configurations from the registry. They are under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Software\Comodo\Firewall Pro\Configurations .
