I wanted to know if it was safe to select that? Or is there any kind of danger with selecting that? I am also just a tad confused with what to pick when aps want to run. The following I do understand and know what to do:
Installer or Updater
Windows System Application
Now here are the ones I do not understand and what they would fall under?
Limited Application (I am thinking that could be used for iexplore.exe to be more safe?)
Any help would be appreciated. Currently I have iexplore.exe set as Trusted Application.
I wouldn’t consider it trusted, but that is really up to you.
By giving it a trusted policy, it is basically free to do anything it wants. Not always a good thing with a web browser. (Especially IE) I would rather my browser ask me when it attempts to do something that may be abnormal, so I stick with the custom policy.
I would also change the network security policy to web browser. (Firewall → Advanced → Network Security Policy)
I will make the change in the firewall. When editing. Do I choose use a predefined policy and put web browser? Or do I select the custom and copy from predefined security policies? Do you also advise doing this with firefox as well?
I just went ahead and deleted it in D+ and let it pick it up again as custom policy. Still need help though answering the top question. Thanks.
Thanks. I will do that. I am not questioning you so dont take it that way. I installed the firewall with D+ all at defaults. Is there a reason why Comodo you think did not do that in the first place as default settings?
Try it and see if it works. I use the Windows Live Mail application for my email. I used the email client profile with version 3.5, but when 3.8 was released, the email client profile won’t allow it to connect.
