Downloaded the offline 6802 installer and ran it over the 6778 I had on a Win10 latest system. It installed showing as an Upgrade, but it actually uninstalled the previous version. Rebooted and ran it again and all went well. No initial scan or AV database was needed, so obviously the previous main settings and content were preserved
After one quick update (presumably for the Recognizers), a reboot and import of my Config, everything’s been running well for a few days now. It’s stable and quick and there appear to be a couple of improvements that allow for Trusted File checking, with faster modifying and rebuilding of the Trusted Vendor lists
Obviously it doesn’t have the major changes of the 12 version, but so far, it looks good for an 11 update - many thanks :-TU
I report my experience installing this latest version of CIS with Windows 10 October Update and all the patches installed, including the Tuesday March 2019 patch.
Having read in a previous post that it had been possible to upgrade without uninstalling the previous version, I proceeded like this:
download of the installation software;
installation execution (I did not install Comodo Dragon and the internet protection component);
at the end of the installation I restarted.
When the PC started up again I found that CIS was no longer installed and I repeated the installation repeating the above steps. On this occasion the mask for the replacement of the DNS etc etc appeared and I restarted the PC again.
When, for the second time, the PC was completely usable, I checked the CIS version (it was the last one) and I checked if there was a custom set of rules that I had previously saved: it wasn’t there, so there I have loaded again.
Personally I have had no problems performing these operations but I have some thoughts to ask:
why a software is often not able to detect an update and propose it (as it does, for example, Mozilla Firefox);
why I lose the set of custom rules after each installation;
why every installation of a new version of CIS is a new adventure (I read, among the release notes, an improvement to the simplified installation: where?).
I am very happy with the use of this product and I hope that my thoughts can be taken into consideration for future releases.
(I use google translator to write, forgive any grammar mistakes).
- why a software is often not able to detect an update and propose it (as it does, for example, Mozilla Firefox);
because they haven't made it available to the program updater yet, they don't provide the update to older version as soon as a new version is released.
- why I lose the set of custom rules after each installation;
You don't really lose it as the previous config is saved using a name with the previous version number in the config name. This only happens when you upgrade using the installers, when you update using the program updater your settings stay the same.
Has this problem been solved with previous versions?
“I state that I don’t have a new PC, it’s about 10 years old. It’s a laptop with 4 GB of RAM, 150 GB of hard drives and an Intel Core 2 processor.
When the PC starts up, the CIS icon is displayed in some cases even after 5 minutes along with all the remaining CIS processes. Therefore, after not having problems of slow PC, the problem arises only when the PC is restarted or switched on. Please solve, I really like the CIS. The same problem also with CAV. Now in the meantime I’m using CCAV that doesn’t come from these problems.”
I have reinstalled CIS and am testing it.
For the moment it seems to be working fine and it is not causing me the problems of slowing down when starting up the PC and the icon lagging behind when starting the PC, which instead happened in previous versions. I will continue to use it and see how I find myself.
In the meantime I suggest you improve the protection against phishing that in CIS is non-existent and also using COS is very very low. At least improve the protection against phisihing in COS.
Testing it from this site: https://openphish.com/ COS results are disappointing. As well as those of CIS.
The firewall slows me down the connection a lot, bringing it almost to zero …
Turning it off restarts everything regularly, reactivating it again almost to zero …
I uninstalled it again and returned to CAV.
Nothing … you have to make a stable and reliable version … :‘( :’( :-TD
