Can you be more specific? How do you notice the block? Don’t just look at the unblock application task, check comodo logs for HIPS, firewall, and auto-containment.

The CIS home page shows that I have blocked applications and when I check to see what is blocked cis.exe is one of the blocked applications?

Thanks
Dave

Not really helpful you need to look at the blocked by column and then open the relevant event log for the blocking component.

I tried to do what you suggested and it was blocked by HIPS and when I looked at the HIPS log file it showed cis.exe as the application and the target a file (xxx.exe) that I blocked. It is showing cis.exe not the blocked file (xxx.exe) in blocked applications? It should be displaying the target (xxx.exe) in the blocked applications not cis.exe.

Thanks

Could you post a screenshot of the HIPS logs?

here it is

No not a bug when you add a file to the blocked files section in HIPS protected objects, it makes that file inaccessible to all running applications, thus will log when any application attempts to access it.
