i need to revisit a problem that staill exits to the present release. i have shadow protect for desktop(spd). this is disk imageing software. spd places a service in system serviices. full blown cis stops this service from starting. ther only workaround(not a solution) is to permantently disable defence+. my thought is that a driver for defence+ stops the spd service from starting. spd has something call network view wher you define a connection to another computer, an online connection, a nas or whatever. for me that is a connection to a local drive. so my connection is to local host. an oddity to me is that before vista sp2 everything worked well together. after vista sp2 the problem began. i really need comodo to look into this. i have backed away drom cis several times coming back with each new release to see if the problem is resolved. i have read that many people gave up on cis because of this problem or one like it. i would like to see some guidance from comodo and/or people who have encountered this problem.
Is this hard disk a fixed disk as in it is not an external disk? In the situation of an external disk CIS will not learn the rules. It will only follow the rules until either your computer restarts or when you disconnect and reconnect the disk again. CIS behaves the same way with USB sticks for example
Did you have “Block all the unknown requests if the application is closed” enabled? That might interfere.
