Summary - Give a clear summary in the topic subject,
Since updating to 6 version ( Comodo Firewall ) some month ago, randomly from time to time my Defense+ HIPS rule sets keep getting resetted. Basicly its like i never made any ruleset for D+ ( Other Comodo settings are fine, so Firewall, and all other settings are fine, only ones keep getting wiped clean are Hips rules for apps)
Can U reproduce the problem & if so how reliably?: No, its quite random
Any software except CIS/OS involved? If so - name, & exact version: None
Any other information, eg your guess at the cause, how U tried to fix it etc:
I tryed fixing problem by doing clean install of freshly downloaded Comodo FW 6 , set it up from scratch.
Exact CIS version & configuration: 6.3.302093.2976
Modules enabled & level. D+/HIPS, Autosandbox/BBlocker, Firewall, & AV: D+/HIPS = Safe mode, Firewall = Custom Ruleset. Sandbox = Disabled. ( No Comodo AV installed )
Have U made any other changes to the default config? (egs here.): I did enable enhanced protection module for D+ and some changes for firewall and stuff like pass protect.
Have U updated (without uninstall) from a CIS 5?:Yes, but i did clean install later hoping it will fix problem.
[li]if so, have U tried a a clean reinstall - if not please do?: Did clean install.
[/li]- Have U imported a config from a previous version of CIS:At first yes, but since problems were still there i unistalled, deleted config and did clean install.
[li]if so, have U tried a standard config - if not please do: should i disable enhanced prot module?
[/li]- OS version, SP, 32/64 bit, UAC setting, account type, V.Machine used:
Windows 7 64 SP 1 , UAC Disabled, type of account is Admin. Virtual machine not being used if that was the question im not sure.
Other security/s’box software a) currently installed b) installed since OS: a= b=
A= Avast free antivirus, latest version 9 i believe it is, Malwarebytes but only on demand, HiJackThis
B= i did test few antiviruses on this OS like Avira and Kaspersky AV
If i could also add that problems im having started when i first updated to version 6, also i did have problem of D+ Popup warnings for apps being very slow, like lets say if i would start Photoshop it would stand like that for ~20sec before showing me popup, and when popups show its at first freezed and unresponsive, also saying random stuff like "notepad is trying to modify system or something like that, and only after ~5-10 sec it shows real popup with real informations of Photoshop trying to modify something etc. That problem is Mostly gone since i did clean install, yes i say mostly coz its still being kinda slow and unresponsive for first few seconds after popups show. Thats not how it use to be before version 6 for me at least.
I would also like to mention that CIS sometimes while windows is in process of shuting down ask something with popup warning, like ATI catalyst is trying to modify or stuff like that, but i always stop windows from shuting down and allow request then shutdown windows. Im mentioning this as i know how programs if turned off while in process of making changes to config files can make them lose those configurations.
If more info is needed please ask il gladly do what i can.
