My home PC is equipped with Windows Vista Home Basic Service Pack 1 and Comodo Internet Security (CIS) 3.8.64739.471. The latter (firewall and defense+) works smoothly and satisfactorily.
I wish that some unnecessary “startup programs” would be disabled by CIS while my PC is starting to run. Similar feature is provided by Microsoft System Configuration Utility (msconfig), which is sometimes not efficient.
I appreciate it much if any member of Comodo team will soon give me any technical assistance - how to edit the setting of CIS appropriately.
It seems that “my block files” as one of the common tasks is not so flexible as a normal Startup Manager. The latter just has to indicate “Enable”, “Disable” or “Remove” on any unnecessary startup program.
I am puzzled why CIS defense+ cannot have such an added feature.
Do you use Ccleaner??? That is a very great program to disable normal startups… You can just disable any program instead of deleting it… Revo Uninstaller, also provides this facility.
BTW, CIS is a firewall and to check start ups Comodo’s program is Comodo Registry Cleaner… However, the new CSC it seems have removed this function (which may be added in future)… if you have an earlier version of CRC (18.104.22.168) it had this feature.
For the time being you can use Ccleaner as msconfig may give you some troubles… If you wish you disable things without installing a new software… You may try services.msc (type services.msc in Start>Run and enter - for XP) , which is safer than msconfig. However, be careful not to disable critical items and at the most set the items to manual instead of disable to avoid any crashes.
I would still suggest ccleaner as it is safer and is also a great utility to get rid of junks from your computer.
