Make a self extracting Installable Package from a monitored program

Active monitor
This is a monitoring engine that detects setups and actively keeps track of any changes made to the system. This is achieved in real-time and stores information from detected setups.

Added shell integration (for .exe & .msi files) for manual run & monitor
In the event a setup is not detected or when the automatic detections is off, you are able to right click a setup (.exe or .msi) and install & monitor it, thus making sure that it will be removed safely.

Improved the storage file system (disk-performance)
By modifying the internal storage system and storage search algorithms, increased disk-performance is achieved.

Increased efficiency of the monitoring system (less CPU usage)
By improving the algorithms used, we make sure a false-positive ratio in the setup detection is kept to a bare minimum.

Works fine so far on my Windows 7 64 bit .

Had The Beta Installed and this sucked the life out of my laptop , but this stable version runs smoothly on my win 7 64 bit laptop…thanks for this comodo team :-TU :a0 ;D

On older versions I am sure you could pick to do a complete uninstall or run the standard uninstall of monitored applications, but this build seems like you can only run a complete uninstall??


In this version the standard uninstall is called in the complete uninstall process unless the ‘Force Uninstall’ option is checked from the Settings Tab.
Thank you.

does this version automatically monitor programs i install even if i don’t have cpm running or do i still have to right click the setup file and choose to monitor setup with cpm for the install to be monitored?

also can cpm monitor addon installs for browsers?

if cpm can monitor addon installs for browsers do i have to manually monitor it or does cpm do it automatically even if cpm isn’t running?

It will monitor all installs even if you don’t right-click. That is why it always has a service running.

I guess it depends on what sort of add-ons you’re talking about. It doesn’t monitor extension installations, but it does monitor plugins like Flash player.

But when you get something like this (see attached) you can’t just run standard installer you have to uninstall all the programs or bypass CPM all together and uninstall it using control panel.

in this case i wish we had the option to use the DB to uninstall if its available

There is an option to add CPM in Control Panel. But I would like to see it the KillSwitch way, i.e Replace Add/Remove with CPM. Is it possible?


Revo Uninstaller better then CMP?
