You could but that would beat much of the purpose of Defense+. If you’re shown popups again and again for some Windows system app or some installer/updater, tell D+ to consider it accordingly and tick the remember option.
so it should learn on its own?
Yes. Right-click on the tray icon and select “Defense+ Security Level”. In the default level, Clean PC Mode, it allows everything (at least ordinary activities) already installed on your computer. When you install new software, you can temporarily switch to Training Mode so that D+ learns about it, then get back to the secure Clean PC Mode.
Read the help file, it’s very informative:
Clean PC Mode: From the time you set the slider to 'Clean PC Mode', Defense+ will learn the activities of the applications currently installed on the computer while all new executables introduced to the system are monitored and controlled. This patent-pending mode of operation is the recommended option on a new computer or one that the user knows to be clean of malware and other threats. From this point onwards Defense+ will alert the user whenever a new, unrecognized application is being installed. In this mode, the files in 'My Pending Files' are excluded from being considered as clean and are monitored and controlled.
Note: In ‘Paranoid Mode’, ‘Train with Safe Mode’ and ‘Clean PC’ mode, Comodo Firewall Pro will make it easy to install new applications that you trust by offering you the opportunity to temporarily engage ‘Installation Mode’. If you are installing a new, unknown application. Defense+ will alert you with a pop-up notification and, as you want to allow this application to continue installing, you should select ‘Treat this application as an Installer or Updater’.
Training Mode: The firewall will monitor and learn the activity of any and all executables and create automatic ‘Allow’ rules until the security level is adjusted. You will not receive any Defense+ alerts in ‘Training Mode’. If you choose the ‘Training Mode’ setting, we advise that you are 100% sure that all applications and executables installed on your computer are safe to run.
Tip: This mode can be used as the “Gaming Mode”. It is handy to use this setting temporarily when you are running an (unknown but trusted) application or Games for the first time. This will suppress all Defense+ alerts while the firewall learns the components of the application that need to run on your machine and automatically create ‘Allow’ rules for them. Afterwards, you can switch back to ‘Train with Safe Mode’ mode).
Also as I said you should identify updaters (from antivirus etc.) and windows system apps as such so that they have the necessary permissions and don’t popup all the time.
How do I tell CPF 3 to stop putting a particular file in the My Pending Files…
I have Avast antivirus and everytime I restart there are two Avast files on the My Pending File list categorized as modified. I always had to manual add them to my safe list…is there an easier way =)
I think you can use wildcards when defining safe files, look in the help.
I don’t think that would work…the way my pending files work (i think) …is that if it has been modified and it is in the my protected files (*.dll) it would list it. I guess I just had to review everytime avast modifies it’s own dll hehehe…
Try defining the Avast updater as Installer/Updater or maybe as Trusted Application if necessary.
