Commodo does not remember answers

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

  1. for a safe application
  2. for createing folders in the $TEMP$ directory. isn’t this alowed for every application?


P.S.: I’m using version on Windows XP SP3

Welcome to the forum Peter :slight_smile:
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.

Hi Dennis
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.


Temp folders are different all the time this is why. My NIS 2009 does the same as Comodo cause it recognizes a different file every time. Its Comodo by the way.

errr just to makes sure ??? so the application is treated as Trusted ??? perhaps you can change the rule to installer/updater ???

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.


then use “trusted application” instead of just allow it ???

That’s why I opened this thread: The application is declared “safe” and “trusted” and I still get these anyoing popups.
