I’m using Commode for a few weeks now and I have one problem:
I have an application which I have declared a “safe file” in defense+
and still every time I start the application I get the event
“XY is a safe application but tries to create a folder in C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\XY”
why do I get such a message
for a safe application
for createing folders in the $TEMP$ directory. isn’t this alowed for every application?
P.S.: I’m using version 184.108.40.2068 on Windows XP SP3
Welcome to the forum Peter
I presume it is because the name changes each time(XY to XX) if it really bother’s you that much you can change it to this.
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP* this will allow it to create any named file in the temp folder.
and thanks for your answer. Unfortunately this does not solve the problem.
I added the suggested path with wildcard to the application,
now I do not get any requests until reboot. Then I have to add
the wildcard again.
I think I will switch back to Sunbelt personal Firewall,
Comodo just can’t be configured the way I need it.
the application is Opera, my webbrowser, and I do not think that “Installer/Updater” is the right choice for this kind of program. I will get back to Comodo when the usability of the Defense+ part has improved.
A few suggestions:
currently if Comodo asks “application XY wants to create a folder C.\WINDOWS\TEMP\ZZZ”
and I click on “allow”, I get a rule that allows this exact folder to be created.
what about a third option in addition to “alow this” and “deny”: “alow creating all kind of files”?
otherwise I always have to change the rule manually.
this goes for creating folders as well as creating registry keys.
