different CIS settings for different accounts???

Hi, just wondering if its possible to have different configurations of CIS set up on two accounts on the same pc.
I would like to set CIS to maximum security, sandbox blocked, everything pretty much locked down on my childs account is this possible?
Thanx MW

Unfortunately, I’m not sure there’s an easy way to do this. The configuration for CIS is stored in the registry and although there are individual user settings for some aspects of the application, the most important settings - firewall rules, D+ settings etc. - are machine specific. Currently, the only way to switch between different configurations is by using More/Manage My Configurations

Basically, you’d need to do something like the following:

  1. Activate COMODO - Proactive Security
  2. Modify the settings for firewall, D+ etc.
  3. Export the configuration - Give it any name
  4. Import the configuration and rename it as appropriate
  5. Repeat for the second configuration
  6. Activate whichever configuration is appropriate for the occasion (might need to logoff/on)

I’m sure it would be possible to create a start-up script that selects the appropriate configuration in the registry. As far as I’m aware it’s a simple matter of changing the value in one key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Software\COMODO\Firewall Pro\Configurations

Change the DWORD value for ‘Active’ to the appropriate number, where the number identifies the configuration required. If I get time during the next week, I’ll take a look. In the meantime, maybe someone else has a better idea…

The issue has been pending there in Wishlist for years, no comments so far…

Thanx guys,
this would be a good feature…an thanx Radaghast for your information gonna try your suggestions
thanx again MW
