We have just released COMODO Internet Security 5.0.159634.1091 RC!
What is new in this release?
FIXED! Antivirus scanning freezes in some computers during full scan FIXED! cmdagent.exe crashes in some systems FIXED! cmdagent.exe consumes too much CPU while application launching FIXED! Sandbox shows alerts for non-existing applications FIXED! D+ does not show execution alerts for commandline arguments FIXED! Some applications do NOT work even if they are added to Exclusions list of Shellcode Injections e.g. Daemon Tools or licensing software. FIXED! CIS consumes 100% CPU when the computer first starts and a new zone is detected FIXED! CIS Firewall alerts unnecessarily for manually sandboxed safe processes FIXED! IE8 can execute processes outside the sandbox when UAC is disabled FIXED! CIS causes Pinnacle Studio 14 to crash FIXED! CIS does not protect ProxyServer registry key FIXED! CIS crashes during drag&drop of firewall rules FIXED! CIS shows incorrect icons in firewall rules
The most important fix in this release is performance degredation fixes caused by antivirus scanning. It should now be observable in realtime. For example, while tagging MP3 files or doing something that requires file system traversal.
WARNING: CIS does not work properly in VirtualBox because of the limitations imposed by this virtual machine(Vectored Exceptions fail). So please test it with another VM software.

Great to hear system performance is being tweaked. :-TU Other than too many popups for clean programs, this is my only other grip with CIS. I look forward to testing.
Thanks to languy’s post on other thread i paid attention it was an RC. I am really glad we have such a good progress in Beta, but i am a little afraid it’s too fast and Comodo rushing again to release their product.
The first Beta was released in July 30th (less than a month ago) and we already have an RC. I am not a developer but I followed betas of other products, like Avast with their version 5 (i think Tech and Rejzor can be more precise, telling how long lasted beta for Avast 5) and others. I would be very glad if it released soon, because i am desperately waiting for it.
Only make it right this way, please, don’t rush. Release a finished product with 0 bugs and you’ll prove to all Comodo’s evil-wishers what this product is worth of!!! 8)
I was an avast beta tester…they needed several months to reach final release…but…consider that comodo starts from the 4.1 version, that is a solid base for cis 5. I don’t know if comodo staff, talking about scan engine, sandbox, defense + etx…, re-started from scratch. I suppose, since comodo 4.x was quite new, they have improved something already existing and working well…tha avast case was different, they had to build from zero a new scan engine, new behavior blocker, sandbox (for avast pro…).
Lets wait and trust comodo developers…they surely know risks of a premature finel release…
