I do not know if this is a firewall or anti-virus, or defense plus problem.
When I start a lot of my games I get a black screen that just sits there and locks up my PC. All I can do I reboot.
I do not get a Comodo popup window asking me if it is o.k. to run the games exe or dll.
I have windows 7 64 bit.
When I tell Comodo Internet Security suite to Exit and shut down I do not have any problem running these games.
None of these games are online games. All are regular games that I play in single player mode although some may have a multiplayer mode, I am not telling the game to connect to any game server. I do not play online games.
Can anyone please help?
BTW, I read “A Note to Gamers” in the FAQ. This is unacceptable and will not help me. I have 167 ( One Hundred and Sixty Seven) games installed on my computer. If this is your only solution, then I must not use this software. Please someone give me a better solution… or you can come over to my house and spend 5 hours configuring all my games.
I just edited this post above, you may not have seen it. That training mode idea is Not an option for me. I have 167 games installed on this machine and i will be danged if i am going to do that for 167 games!
I need a better solution.
This post seems to have double posted. I did not post this twice in this forum, I do not know how that happened.
I would rather hear that from an official representative of the company who really knows first hand what he is talking about. Are you such an official representative?
That is completely outrageous and unacceptable. Why would defense plus choose to do this with games and not every application on your hard drive? That makes no sense to me. There must be a setting I can change to fix this… if there is not one, then this product needs to be seriously redesigned.
No that does Not happen. i can uninstall these games and reinstall them, and on first run I get… black screen… no popup alert… Hey that would be nice if that did work… but it does not. This app is toast.
Man it’s not necessary to yell at us.
If you have the patience to search through the forums all your questions have answers, they’re well known by users and Comodo staff/developers.
And I don’t know how often do you visit forums but don’t expect that all your answers to be replied quickly.
Originally intended as a PM but I changed my mind and am posting to the thread as well
Subject: My personal apologies for your experiences.
I am sorry, we could not be of more help to you, regarding your problem. The fact is that I thought I would bet several people knew the answer that you yourself discovered from the start. The first thing that they try to do is maintain the protection that D+ offers. Setting up this with D+ in training mode has been an acceptable solution for the majority of CIS gamers and believe me there several million at least.
“I have never seen any other software like this work so poorly with games”
If this is a fact please feel free to try another software.

“Comodo sneaks Defense Plus onto your system! You only find out about it when you open the system tray icon!”
Defense plus is an integral part of the Comodo security philosophy. Comodo has included some sort of hips in its Firewall since version 2.4 and has made no secret of it.
When you approach a problem with an offensive attitude, you find people much less like likely to want to be helpful. I hope that if you continue to approach problems in you life with the same attitude as this problem, you find people much more receptive to your over all pleasant attitude. However, when I see this kind of attitude I generally just sit back and watch and wait to see if they self destruct, die of a heart attack or solve the problem. Even if I know what the Client/User requires to solve the problem, I have found that you don´t really need this kind of Client - they make for many headaches and are not worth the few references the will generate.
I hope you find you future experiences with Comodo much more pleasant but this will largely depend on your initial approach to a problem
