I would put CIS into training mode until it learns rules for the touchpad driver. maybe put firewall and D+ in training mode and then reboot. After boot , Check your rules to see if one has been created for the touchpad file and if so, then return the Firewall and D+ to your preerred settings. That should fix the problem. I would also think that having D+ in Clean PC mode when you boot would fix it as well.
My mistake, it is, in fact, cfp.exe and not cfd.exe that it is trying to modify.
So it sounds like it is normal for the touch pad process to modify Comodo? Is this correct?
Also I am getting programs that try to insert itself or another .dll, say, into another process. Is this normal too?, and also asking for access to protected resources such as COM, and registration.
The real problem for me is: trying to determine what is legitimate and what is not, on the fly.
For instance, When I try to print a document from another local network attached PC, thru to the laptop where a printer is attached, Comodo on the laptop comes up and says something like: “blah.exe is trying to execute photo.jpg” when the printer fires up - or it might try to execute a text file - ie a non-executable(!)
Hello dph, if the suggestions allready put forward don`t help you could try adding a couple of the Synaptics executables to the exclusion list for Comodo Internet Security.
To do this go to Defence+/Advanced/Computer Security Policy->Find the entry for Comodo Internet Security and double left click on it->In the new window click on “Protection settings” and then on “Modify” next to “Interprocess memory access”
Now click on Add and use either running processes or Browse and add these entries,
Now APPLY to close all windows.
Now go back to the CIS exclusion list to make sure the above entries are there.
p.s. Had a quick look at the Hijack log and it looks fine. One thing you can do is where there is an entry which has (no file) after it can be fixed.
