Comodo keeps bugging the external HDs for a long period of time [NBZ]

I noticed the external hard drives were being used when i wasnt using them so i started process monitor to track down the culprit(s) and to my disappointment it was Comodo :o

Comodo keeps bugging the external HDs for a long period of time ( it does the same thing with the internal hard drive )

The bug/issue

  1. What you did:
    Used process monitor

  2. What actually happened or you actually saw:
    Comodo accesses external hard drives for no good reason for a period of time.
    effect: External hard drives can’t go to sleep.

  3. What you expected to happen or see:
    Comodo not using the ‘pull method’ and not accessing HDs for no apparent reason.

  4. How you tried to fix it & what happened:
    Just give me the source code and i’ll try.

  5. If its an application compatibility problem have you tried the application fixes here?:
    Not applicable

  6. Details (exact version) of any application involved with download link:
    Not applicable

  7. Whether you can make the problem happen again, and if so exact steps to make it happen:
    I think i can replicate it by accessing one of the external hard drives then comodo starts its strange behaviour.

  8. Any other information (eg your guess regarding the cause, with reasons):
    Not applicable

Your set-up

  1. CIS version, AV database version & configuration used:

    Defense+ : Safe Mode
    Antivirus : Disabled ( removes good / safe files without my permission >:( )
