Was using CIS 8 (not the last update, the one before - all attempts to install the last CIS 8 version created unusable computer that BSOD on clicking in the login screen password field, so rolled back to previous CIS 8 version). Everything OK.
Exported config, installed CIS 10, imported previously saved config and switched to it.
Two problems. First caused by Viruscope, solved by disabling viruscope, leaving that for now.
Second problem appears to be caused by HIPS. Don’t understand HIPS enough to fix, but not happy to just leave HIPS off.
Problem when HIPS is enabled to Safe Mode:
When browsing with Firefox (not using sandbox - don’t use that - just normal Firefox browsing), every time I go to open a page that requires Flash or Silverlight, page starts to load but then ‘hangs’ for minimum a minute, usually several minutes, completely locking up Firefox while ‘wait’ icon is twirling, and intermittent appearances of the ‘plugin not responding, wait for response or stop plugin’ dialogue, minimum 3 appearances (with me clicking to wait each time), so far up to about 5 times before the page finally finishes loading and Firefox starts responding again. Previously with CIS 8, and with CIS 10 same config except with HIPS disabled, the same pages load in seconds, Flash Player or Silverlight ready to go with no hang, no plugin not responding messages. Makes browsing unbaerably slow with all the multi-minute waits every flash or silverlight page.
As I say, disabling HIPS clears the problem. But there’s nothing in the HIPS log, no Comodo windows asking for a permission or anything during the long delay for the plugins to load/start/whatever the hild up is. I could understand if HIPS just blocked the Flash and Silverlight plugins, but I don’t understand why it is just delaying for several minutes the start of these Firefox plugins with no logs, no dialogues to indicate what HIPS is doing - and doing wrong - that i can correct.
Any suggestion of a config change I can make to allow me to enable HIPS Safe Mode without it having this effect on the use of the Firefox Flash and Silverlight plugins (as was the case in CIS 8) would be much appreciated.
(Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit; Firefox 50.1.0. latest Flash and Silverlight plugin versions)
