We are very excited to announce that Comodo Cleaning Essentials is ready for private beta testing.
What is Comodo Cleaning Essentials?
Simple. CCE is a set of tools we created for cleaning the infected computers. The main application, CCE, is a powerful virus, spyware, rookit scanner and cleaner. It has many advanced scanning and cleaning techniques that are not present in CIS yet. And then we have a powerful tool called Killswitch, which is purely for experts to diagnose EVERYTHING in a computer. Give it a try!
KillSwitch, advanced system activity monitoring tool
Whats new in CCE 1.5.181743.64?
NEW: CCE can now fix critical system settings (disabled task manager, ms config, run, regedit, etc).
NEW: New languages supported: Russian and Ukrainian
IMPROVED: More powerful MBR scanner
IMPROVED: Save CCE options in config.ini instead of registry
FIXED: Hidden files scanner does not work for some NTFS partitions
FIXED: KillSwitch crashes when opening properties of certain process
FIXED: KillSwitch does not show BHO correctly in some cases
FIXED: “Handle properties” can not be closed under certain circumstance in KillSwitch
[b]This is a private BETA and must not be used for any other purpose than testing. It can contain serious bugs and must be used only by community members.
DO NOT distribute it outside this forum as it is not intended for end-users even for testing purposes.[/b]
Congrats with the new release; it is looking good. (:CLP)
It looks like “CE can now fix critical system settings (disabled task manager, ms config, run, regedit, etc).” is part of the scanner rather than a module like in Super Anti Spyware. That could be something for a future release?
I’m not sure if this will be implemented like this, this would put a HUGE load on the DACS infrastructure and will increase you scan time immensely because it would need to upload way to much files for the systems to handle. They have to come up with some sort of smart coding that only verifies stuff in suspicious places like hitman pro does.
What I’d also like and would possibly be more interesting is the ability to select files and offer to scan them by DACS manually.
yea thats what i kind of figured. i wasnt sure how they were going to implement DACS. It would probably be best if they did it like u said and add it to custom scan so we can scan what we want with DACS.
maybe one of the devs will tell us how they are going to implement DACS
Please correct me I am posting in the wrong thread.
Does Comodo have any improving/self-learning from DACS results?
What I mean is, if a file is found infected in DACS results and not by Comodo AV scanner,
does CCE take any special care of that file and send it to Comodo Labs for Immediate verification?
(I know they would have already scanned it by CAMAS and therefore the sample is with Comodo Labs, still, that puts the file in queue with many other non malicious files and thus takes long to reach the testers).
But we have either a clear case or atleast a greater chance of the sample being a malware, therefore if it is given a high priority, it would improve CAV detection a lot.
