As part of Beta version feedback, following issues are fixed in this production release:
B1 - Changed “Luck you” icon, scan icon is changed as well.
B2 - At times scan progress could cross 100%
B3 - Right click Valkyrie submission ended up in error
B4 - High CPU when scanning “decompression bombs” archives
B5 - Removed “swiping animations” from Settings window
Not fixed and will be fixed in next release:
If you change Sandbox settings to “Ask for untrusted applications” and a malware quarantined, you could still see Sandbox alert.
And carrying from beta announcement, following are changes since last release:
Now there is a sea difference in scanning speed. You should be able to complete scan within reasonable time. We have made changes in protocol used by client and there are server side enhancements as well. We are still upgrading server but you can experience much much better performance now.
After installation upon completion of Quick scan, you will be prompted to re-start system with option to postpone re-start for certain hours. Re-start of system ensures that CCAV also protects against unknown scripts, which otherwise won’t be sandboxed.
Files with install/setup keyword in path could be uploaded to Comodo even though they were safe.
Some of temporary files were left out during installation under “Roaming” folder won’t be are any longer.
Quick scan is now default scan after immediate installation. Quick scan scans all files that could be launched on system startup and thus helps detect any active malware and at the same time helps build the cache, so next time when applications are started, results are in cache.
When CCAV is updated, scan won’t auto start upon update like has been the case. We already have 30 day scheduled scan and auto scan upon update has been unnecessary.
“Sandbox” logs label is changed to “Executed Applications”: When you access logs via “View Logs” section, earlier we had Sandbox section but within that we also had trusted installer entries differentiated by Type column, this was misleading as there were safe application entries as trusted installer mis intepreted if they ran in Sandbox.
Comodo.com is being updated and will soon have this new version available while updates to existing users will start next week.
We have started working on next release of CCAV, where we are focusing on performance improvements solely and will come back with round of Beta testing for that version. So stay tuned.
As always, please keep your feedback coming and we are committed to make CCAV future of client side security with it’s light weight, direct valkyrie integration and default deny architecture.
Ok, tested this version And seems like previous beta version & new probs…
Theme is not working i.e change any theme & after GUI restart, still dark theme
High disk usage i.e all the time between 30-60% And at times 99-100%
Long boot time
Slow programs, system response, etc
Some programs take quite long, for ex - VidCoder portable from vidcoder.net (program first run)
Some programs takes quite long And you see “program not responding” on the program window for few secs, for ex - Avidemux portable from portableapps.com (program first run)
Some programs, if installed in sandbox & you cancel installation midway, you cannot close the window And have to go into the GUI to flush sandbox, for ex - AppFalcon from ormankuza.com, TeraCopy3 from codesector.com
New probs -
Programs installed in sandbox, if create desktop shortcut during install is selected, shortcut appears on desktop as “Virtual-ProgramName”. Even after sandbox flush, shortcut remains on desktop. If you click shortcut, program opens in sandbox.
If you try to install same program in sandbox again, you get program has been already installed, do you want to replace? or the folder already exist, do you want to install in the same folder? for ex - DriverTalent from ostoto.com, TeraCopy3 or any program.
1. Theme is not working i.e change any theme & after GUI restart, still dark theme
I see it working for me, tried on both win 7 and 10 x64.
I changed theme and then from system tray icon, right click and Exit application and started again from "All Programs-->Comodo-->Comodo Cloud Antivirus" shortcut.".
May you share steps you took?
Regarding rest of problems, we will get to it in next releases.
Attached is the screenshot -
Microsoft PID Checker entry twice And second i.e last entry with weird time i.e first entry is with correct time
And I think “Status” under “Detected Threats” could confuse the users i.e if Valkyrie detects a file as “Malicious”, status is malicious But user runs the program & select “dont isolate again”, status changes to trusted.
Regarding slowdown experience you observed, when we get to next release, during beta trials, we are going to work one is to one in case any slow down observed to resolve problems. So we will get there.
Regarding cloud, there can be moments when cloud experience may not have been good.
As you can see users have noticed improvements and we are yet not there with 100% success rate for cloud 24/7, but we are getting there.
