WIN XP PRO SP3
I can’t find a Comodo version number, but it’s the latest
I installed Comodo only for the firewall, having just removed Zone Alarm after many years. I have AdAware, and Avast Anti-Virus running in the background already, and I run several other anti-spyware programs regularly. . I specified Comodo should install ONLY THE INTERNET FIREWALL. Now it asks for permission every time I run an executable, or a program has to run a file or change a registry key. I have over 100 programs, and I can’t function like this. Can this be turned off?
OK, I just saw a post for deactivating Defense+. Is that it?
Yes, defense+ is the HIPS which alerts you about the happenings in your computer. You can keep it on ‘Training Mode’
Right Click CIS Icon-Defense+ Security Level - Training Mode
and run the regular programs once or keep it in that mode for 1-2 days so that CIS learns how you use the computer. Once done you can change it back to ‘Safe Mode’ or ‘Clean PC Mode’. By that time CIS will learn your way of using computer and you will get alerts ‘very few’ alerts.
If you are sure you do not want to use Defense+ at all, you can either keep it in ‘disable’ mode or deactivate defense+ permanently by
Open CIS-Defense±Advanced-General Settings-Deactivae Defense+ permanently.
I recommend that in the time in which you run CIS in Training Mode, you do not browse websites that you are not 100% sure are safe. If you get malware whilst CIS is in Training Mode, it will be allowed onto your computer, and it’s actions will be considered safe - not good!
Thanks. I’ve turned off Defense entirely, as my computers are already protected.
My version is 3.12.111745.560 freeware.
1–I’ve always had Thunderbiird in my Startup folder, so all my email is already downloaded when I sit down. Even though Comodo had permision to let TB through, upon startup I get a TB error “Failed to connect to myISP.” I have to download the mail manually. Is C delaying letting my ISP connection through?
2–Upon installation and configuration, Comodo let Firefox and Thunderbird access the web without asking for my permission, although it asked about other executables. :-TD Was that because it recognizes them as a browser and email program, or is this a glitch?
3–BTW–I also use Comodo Backup, and I’ve had this same problem here: On your pages, most of the buttons don’t show up in Firefox. Across the top, in FF, I have:
Pages  GO DOWN a large space, then PRINT.
FF now has about 25% of the market, so it’s time you’re tech staff altered their programming. I shouldn’t be forced to switch to IE to use your forum.
There are no problems using Firefox to view the forum. Many forum users prefer Firefox. (I’m one of them…) I’ve tried a few tweaks and can’t seem to make those buttons disappear. Seems like a problem on your end?
