COMODO Cleaning Essentials 2.5.242177.201 released

Hi Everyone,

We have just released CCE 2.5 with a few fixes and improvements.

What’s new in CCE 2.5.242177.201?
NEW: Full support of Windows 8 Release Preview.
FIXED: File signature is not recognized correctly in some cases.
IMPROVED: Enhanced white list for system files.
IMPROVED: Avoid false positive by enhanced trusted file verification.
IMPROVED: CCE GUI can now be maximized.
IMPROVED: Update virus signature before restart in full scan so that scan starts immediately after system starts up.



Yay! Thank you :slight_smile:

Thank you - I’m scanning now with it! :-TU

very nice work

Great job! :-TU
It was about time to make new release… (:CLP)

can it clean ransomware 'illegal activities detected,…" ? ? ?

To clean this use

Is it me, or is Killswitch eating loads of memory? I’m currently on 1.8GB and rising on PrivateBytes and WorkingSet memory.

NO :slight_smile:

Still rising, at 4GB now…

Sounds like memory leak… :-\

At 7GB now.
Windows7, Enterprise, x64

It seems to be dancing around the same actions on the Stack…

Is there anyway to make KillSwitch open on another screen on default?
There are usually programs on my primary screen that locks up and can’t alt-tab out of them and they stay top-most and are persistent there, dragging KillSwitch to the right screen closing it then restarting it makes it show up on the left screen still and it appears to always start in the same position. I guess the best thing would be if it started in the middle of the two screens. (for me)
Running on Windows 8 RP btw and the two screens run at “Extend” setting

congrats on the release. Its great to see windows 8 support. I was really hoping for CCAV integration. Is there any time frame for the integration?


Hi Ronny:
Thanks for your feedback. We are looking into this issue and try to fix it later.

Best Regards

Is this fixed in the version now av for download. Prefer not install until it is.

Best wishes


So what’s the deal with the memory leak - any progress on that?


Next version should have this fixed.

When can we expect the latest CCE compatible with CIS6 bases and structure…?


Great minds are thinking alike.
