So I just changed my security from CFP/Boclean/Avast Home to CFP/Spy Sweeper/CA Antivirus
I’m finding that the Firewall Gui is really sluggish when I access it. It takes a considerably longer time to draw on screen than it used to and when switching tabs inside the GUI they also take longer to display. This issue only presented after I changed security, I have narrowed it down to CA Antivirus because when I snooze it, CFP returns to normal. I have already added CFP.exe and Cmdagent.exe to CA’s real time scanner exclusion list but this does not solve my problem.
My CPU idles at about 3-5%, and I’ve got 3.5 gigs of free RAM so its nothing to do with resource. I’m surprised other people using CFP and CA AV have not incountered this problem, I guess I will just exclude all the files in the Comodo install directory and see what happens.
That’s a point, I think it’s a conflict between CFP and CA, when I double click on CFP in system tray with CA AV running CFP uses 80% of my CPU Resource, when I do the same thing with CA AV snoozed CFP uses 12%. What is adding the extra 68%? Is CA known to be a CPU monster to such an extent that it uses an extra 68% of a Core 2 Duo to scan one file? Doubt that.
What I was hoping for from somebody was, “Oh yeah I seen this before, you just exclude this file, or perform this action and everything will be fine”. Looks like it will take some more delving.
Defence+/Advanced/Computer Security Policy/Highlight the Comodo Firewall Pro entry and click “Edit”/Now click Protection Settings/Now Modify next to “Interprocess Memory Access”/Now click “Add” and either add the CA running processes or browse to the CA folder to add it (something like C:\Program files\CA*)
Thanks matty, but I uninstalled CA AV, I was only testing it out anyway. After doing some research about this product I have decided, a one month licence of Avira Premium, will see me through until CAV3 is released. Hopefully!
