We would like to provide you detailed information regarding our new Sandbox Settings option: “Application Categories” .
With the help of " Application Categories " trust/untrust option ; you are able to trust /untrust all files belong to related category easily.
It is a very easy way of classification of trusted and untrusted applications. If you select trusted for the categories, applications in the categories will run out of sandbox; if you select untrusted for the categories, applications in the categories will run in Sandbox !
It can be used to control any application for the selected category to run in Sandbox automatically !
In case you need for the selected category as untrusted, it ensures you to be protected from all related applications inside this category because sandxing will provide prevention from accessing critical system objects, e.g. raw disk, global hooks, physical memory, other processes, etc !
Below please check the details of the categories:
General games, online and offline. Can be used for performance improvement (run outside of sandbox and/or without firewall restrictions can introduce better performance and/or user experience for online games), parental control etc.
Utilities related to PC (and OS) setup and maintenance, like firmware updater, partition table editor etc.
Applications listed as ‘Adware’ in the Comodo file database. While not malicious, adware sometimes runs profiling and data collection tasks that causes concern to some users. We recommend you to set as “Untrusted”. ** Please note that this category will be set as “Untrusted” on default with next release.
PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program)
Applications listed as a ‘Potentially Unwanted Program’ in the Comodo file database. Like adware, a PUP is a legitimate piece of software but one that the user may not be aware is installed, or may have
functionality and objectives that are not clear to the user. An example is a browser toolbar installed as an extra with a different software product. We recommend you to set as “Untrusted”. ** Please note that this category will be set as “Untrusted” on default with next release.
Applications related to program development, compilers, IDE, source code control etc.
Application related to business/financial activity. Bank clients and accountant software are probably best examples.
General purpose utilities, opposite to PC Utility, harmless in inexperienced hands, archivers, file hash/digest calculators etc.
Applications related to software install, update, management tasks. Software downloaders and installers from third party vendors, patch managers etc.
Applications related to network tasks, network scanners, sniffers etc. We recommend you to set as “Trusted”
Applications related to manufacturing process, computer-aided design, manufacturing device controllers.
Applications related to social network activities, clients, messengers, etc.
Peer-to-peer applications, torrent and other file exchange network clients etc.
Audio, video players etc.
