Hello, please first take a look at the screenshot. Now i would like to ask, how can i understand which ones should i allow and which ones should i block. And if i allow some of them, either by “Allow” or by “Installer/Updater”, Comodo pops up a message that it has sandboxed them. So can someone tell me what is the meaning of this questions when no matter the answer it gets sandboxed? I can’t understand this.
Here is what i get when i open the View processes. It is the actions that Chrome takes, not the actions that the file mentioned takes. I mean, i am not interested in Chrome but in the unknown file. Screenshot
It looks to me like you have an app that interacts with Chrome by running a command line.
I got similar prompts when I was running Norton Family.
What you need to do is find browsernativehost.exe on your computer, and see what program it is associated with. If you know and trust that program, then you can whitelist the command line.
Gotcha! browser native host is part of Free Download Manager. So you mean that i need to whitelist browsernativehost.exe and Comodo will stop sandboxing scripts from it? In the File List browsernativehost.exe shows as a trusted program, also Chrome i believe is a trusted program. Is there any other way of stopping this popups than turning off embedded code detection? This thing seems to cause more issues than positives. I would be okay if the scripts were checked in real time in the cloud and we have the result after no more than 15 seconds, and if we had some way to see what script is safe and what is malicious. What is the point of sandboxing a script when the program is trusted? How can i know if C_cmd[some other symbols here] is malicious or not? With the programs it is easy, you simply unblock it and restart it. But how can i restart the script after unblocking?
Well, Comodo has not yet perfected this new feature of monitoring scripts. Sometimes the scripts are generated by a randomly named temp file, whose name changes every time, and in such cases, it looks like it cannot be whitelisted – at least until the new fix comes out from Comodo.
There are a few threads here discussing this issue, they provide various workarounds.
I guess that i’ll keep this feature disabled for now. Hope they fix it. Comodo have gone too far from usability. Good ideas not implemented good.
I suffer from the same problem, and we are not the only ones. They will fix it.
In the meantime, if you want to keep that feature enabled, you might want to consider using a different download manager.
Certain apps do this intrusive thing to the browser that Comodo doesn’t like, but other apps don’t do it.
Maybe someone here has a suggestion for you, for a replacement download manager, if you want to go that route.
Another alternative is to make your big downloads from Firefox. Try it out – Firefox might not suffer from the same problem, for me it did not.
I keep Free Download Manager for when i need to download large files. Usually i download with Chrome directly. The problem is not with Chrome but with the fact that my router is not in the room and the connection is flaky.
