hi I have problem that started right after the recent comodo program update, everything was working fine before that
but since then every morning for a few days now when I start the computer I see 3 applications being auto sandboxed, It doesn;t seem to affect anything much on the computer but it’s annoying because I would prefer to see 0 applications there and only see a number when something serious actually happens, unless this one IS something serious in it’s own, but what is this problem now?
sorry now I’m even more confused, was the latest update from less than a week ago was from 7 to 8?
if it was, what does it actually mean what you are saying, that I should just untick the box you mentioned ? why if it’s nothing serious comodo shows 3 sandboxed apps in that section, it’s like a false positive?
Sorry I was on a phone when I typed that, so it ended up rather vague.
To check to logs:
Open the main CIS window
Click Tasks in the upper-right corner
Click View Logs under General Tasks
In the new window that appears there is a drop-down menu to the top-left, click that and choose Defense+ Events
Right-click anywhere within the list and click Entire period
Find around the time you logged in and see if there is any logs of application being sandboxed
It’s showing 3 sandboxed applications in that section because that’s what they are, they are sandboxed, running in a virtualized environment (depending on settings, V8 default is virtualized) the counter of how many apps are running in the sandbox doesn’t say if there is anything serious or not, it simply states that things are running in the sandbox, it’s not a telling of whether it’s serious or not serious, simply neutral information.
hi thanks again
I looked at the particular Defense + entire period log following your instructions I see nothing got sandboxed today or even yesterday I see one file of mine which is a text file that got logged (under “flags”) as “Ignored” so I guess that’s not it right? so what is being sandboxed then?
hi clockwork thanks but I don’t think I fully understand what I’m supposed to do with the information you supplied me I think I already HAD version 8 and just got a small update and then things started to pop, before this last update which took place a few days ago with version 8 I didn’t have these sandboxed apps…
if I don’t hear back from Sanya with regard I might try your method as a last resort, I don’t use this feature of virtualizing things I didn’t before and I don’t see why I would now, unless it happens automatically, I don’t know why Comodo claims I virtualized something in the last few days, I don’t see what have changed in the way I use my computer (other than the last update a few days ago)
Oh sorry, I thought that Clockwork explained it quite well so I didn’t see a need to comment, disabling the option doesn’t impact the security negatively at all, in fact it may increase it if anything, I would recommend disabling the mentioned setting and then rebooting to see if it worked.
