Def+ doesn't monitor Comodo dragon [NBZ]

he bug/issue

  1. What you did: downloaded Comodo dragon; created a rule in Def+ for dragon.exe with everytjing on ask; then launched dragon
  2. What actually happened or you actually saw: dragon runs without a flawn but def+ gave no alert, didn’t monitor Dragon. NB : if rules set on block, then Def+ blocked Dragon, but on ask it didn’t react
  3. What you expected to happen or see: pop ups from Def+ telling that Dragon was trying to run, open or use something and asking me what to do allow, block, etc…
  4. How you tried to fix it & what happened:
    changed c:\Program Files\Comodo* to c:\Program Files\Comodo\Comodo Internet Security in the group Comodo Files\Folders in the Protected Files and Folders. No result
    dragged Dragon.exe above All Aplications in Def+ rules. No result
  5. If its an application compatibility problem have you tried the application fixes here?: not relevant
  6. Details & exact version of any application (execpt CIS) involved with download link: Comodo dragon 8, downloaded from
  7. Whether you can make the problem happen again, and if so exact steps to make it happen: not relevant
  8. Any other information (eg your guess regarding the cause, with reasons): I thought first CIS didn’t alert because Dragon is a Comodo product and as such considered safe and trusted by CIS which of course is a problem because Dragon is a brownser and shouldn’t be allowed elevated privileges. But as Def+ blocked the moves of Dragon when the rules are set on block it tends to invalidate my supposition.
