Anytime I use an audio or video program (usually a converter), I get CONSTANT Comodo messages about the program wanting to insert a Global Hook into dwmapi.dll. This has recently become SO bad, that Comodo will stop functioning when I try to launch HeadAChe, even though it is set as a trusted file with Admin permissions (Win 7 64-bit).
This is ridiculous. I have been having more and more problems with Comodo, and there have been no updates to resolve anything.
Very disappointed. Free or not, if it doesn’t work, it’s not worth the trouble.
Can you please tell us in what configuration mode you are running, based on this information it’s hard to say if it’s a bug or a limitation of the current sandbox config.
If you run sandbox please add the HeadAC3che.exe to the Defense+ Computer Security policy as Installer/Updater that should get rid of the ‘hook’ alert.
Developers are trying to create way around this current issue with some applications that run sandboxed and cause hook alerts so I hope next (major) version has this fixed.
We would very much appreciate it if you would edit your first post to create an issue report in line with the bug forum guidelines and format here. You can copy and paste the format from this topic.
To understand the reasons why we ask you to follow these guidelines please see below.
WHY WE ASK YOU TO FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES
Bugs/issues can be impossible or very time consuming to fix if developers don’t have enough information to reproduce them. Since CIS is free, development time is limited. So if you want your issue fixed, please use the format below to describe it.
To avoid clutter, issues not described in the format below your post will not be moved to the ‘moderator verified’ issues topic. This means that the developers may not look at it.
Sorry if I was confusing, but I was talking about the executable HeadAC so add it to the Defense+ Computer Security Policy and set it’s policy to pre-defined ‘Installer or Updater’ profile.
That way the ‘hook’ alerts should disappear. Please also verify if the file is no longer on the Defense+ Unrecognized files, if it’s still there please remove it from that list.
Unfortunately we do need this issue to be reported in the full right format, and with all the information we have asked for, if we are to forward it to verified issues.
For the moment I am going to move it to the Orphaned/Resolved child board. If you do edit your post to create a complete issue report in standard format, and PM an active mod, we will of course consider moving it to verified reports.
The devs only look at the Orphaned/Resolved board if they have time, so please do edit the post and PM an active mod if you want it fixed.
