Here we are happy to announce that the COMODO Internet Security/Antivirus/Firewall 126.96.36.19992 Hotfix for Windows10 1511 Support is released ! Main focus of the release is the Windows10 1511 Support improvements .
Thank you very much to you all for the precious feedbacks!
PS: We’re very close to release our CIS 9 Beta Public version ; please follow up closely, december is coming! :-TU
Updates are available !
Existing CIS 6.x, CIS 7x and CIS 8.x users will receive an automatic update offer CIS 8.2 Windows 10 1511 Hotfix Release update .
What’s new in 188.8.131.5292?
Windows 10 Support:
• Support improvements for Microsoft Windows 10 Version 1511.
Can somebody clarify what “Support improvements” means?
I used the previous version on build 1511 and I didn’t see any specific issues. After updating to the new version, the only difference I have seen so far is that I am getting some new alerts from the HIPS module regarding executables trying to access windows services, which didn’t exist before; then again I never received this type of alert in windows 7 either so this is most probably a new (and good) addition to the HIPS protection rather than some exclusive fix for Windows 10 Build 1511.
Congrats with the release. I have successfully updated with the updater on my Windows 10 x64 on my desktop and on my Windows 8.1 x86 netbook. Both machines seem to run a bit lighter. Are there others who feel their system runs a bit lighter with this build?
Buket, could you please specify what is being fixed? It is important for users to know if specific bugs are fixed for them or not.
But I am a little bit confused, because I thought that Windows Defender will be deactivated automatically after installing another security suite. After I installed CIS 184.108.40.20603 or 220.127.116.1192 Defender was deactivated at first. After my 2nd reboot it was active again. Is this the way it should be? Until now I am not experiencing any conflicts.
Actually, with the new Win 10 Build 10586, but it was conflicting with the O.S, well, maybe because I forgot to disable CIS before upgrading to the new build 10586. The same happened with another security application.
I installed CIS on 5 different computers in my family. And not only once. Tried new install, too. On neither one of them Defender has been disabled by CIS.
The only thing that is installed are the GPU drivers and Libre Office. Everything else like browser and tools are portable.
As long as there are no conflicts I am ok with it. Is the “normal” behaviour supposed to be that CIS deactivates Defender completely including the Defender services?
Normally the CIS installer will disable Defender and its service as well as Windows Firewall. The latter often gets forgotten though.
As far as I know there is no conflict running Defender alongside CIS. It’s just bloody heavy. In general we do advice not to run two AV’s, Firewalls, sandboxes, HIPS’es, etc at the same time as they may conflict. The gain in being more secure when running two AV’s is marginal. To be more secure it is better to have layered security like CIS has.
