First boot after the installation might sometimes take longer than expected: This issue is being investigated
The virus database in this version is a test database and is therefore different from the virus DB of the released version. This means detection rates are different
This is a BETA software and is NOT intended for the end users. Never install this version on a production PC.
This is a huge release and will mark the turning point in Comodo achieving great usability for a “prevention as first line of defense” product. This has never been seen before and as the leading company and innovators in Prevention based security.
Please join me in congratulating the hard working CIS team at their relentless quest in providing our users with the best possible protection!
Defense+>Advanced>Image Execution Settings And you can either uncheck the box at the bottom or leave it ticked as it to detect Buffer Overflow attacks. Then go to Exclusions to add Exclusions, just like the full Memory Firewall but improved and totally integrated.
No. It’s better because of heuristics. If you see Known Issues in Egemen’s announcement the database in this version is a test database because of the new signature format. They are also testing this. It will be back to normal with the current DB (And new sig format) towards a later beta, or RC or even Final.
