If or when Comodo’s DNS servers are located nearer to me, I’ll keep them in mind. It’s just that, as the nearest and only UK Comodo DNS server is a few hundred miles away, they would heavily slow down my connection.
What’s the difference between having IPv6 enabled or disabled?
IPv4 was definitely activated originally.
Since installing the Comodo Firewall, I have had three alerts, all automatically sandboxed:
One from VLC – Reported to be an “unrecognized program” which closed VLC Media Player. I then reopened it, anticipating it to be blocked. It still worked, but without sound. I then reloaded, this time with the sound restored.
Was I allowed access because it was quickly realized to be a safe program? I checked “Quarantine” but couldn’t find any sandboxed items.
Should VLC have remained sandboxed?
Prior to reloading VLC, I ticked the program, but didn’t click on “OK”. The right click options (which I didn’t activate) were:
Not expecting the Sandboxed vlc.exe file to end up in a Safe location after I clicked on “Lookup”, I can’t be sure if vlc.exe has been confirmed safe due to the “Lookup” or it was quickly established to be safe.
Conime.exe – This pop-up appeared twice, both times instantly sandboxed. This one appeared as I scanned “DW Helper” (Video Download Helper) in the “Documents” folder, but later when not scanning DW Helper.
I suspect conime.exe is bogus, as according to the Internet, the genuine “conime.exe” file is located in the System32 folder. It appeared in my “DWHelper” folder (Video Download Helper) under “Documents” while I scanned the whole folder.
The pop-up with unknown IP addresses, asking me if I’m at home, at work or in a public place has surprisingly Not appeared today.
I’d rather not delete this IP address or the Loopback Zone IP address (both different from my own ISP’s address) until I know whether it’s safe to do so.
I am a bit confused.
Although I have “Enable malware domain filtering (Comodo Secure DNS)" ticked, there is no sign of Comodo’s DNS servers in my TCP/IP connections.
Are Comodo’s DNS servers redundant, despite the Comodo filtering being activated?
In other words, even though I have “Enable malware domain filtering (Comodo Secure DNS)” ticked, does this mean that Comodo’s DNS domain filtering will only work if I literally add in Comodo’s DNS servers into my TCP/IP connection?
Either way, I’ve not noticed any speed deterioration in my browsing.
