Hello everybody,

one little question. My Defens + is runnin in paranoid mode. When I´m switching to installation mode in th eoverview window still appears Defense+ is running on paranoid. Why doesn´t it change to “running on installation mode” becaus it is actually running on installation mode?
Can somebody help me with that?

Welcome to the forum xchrischx :slight_smile:
Because Installation Mode is a separate mode it does not matter which mode you are in Paranoid/Safe or PC Clean Mode.

Hello Dennis2,

thank you for your quick reply. Ok then, I don´t have to worry about that. But anyway, I would prefer seeing at first sight when the installation mode is running.

Quote from CIS help file

‘Installation Mode: Installer applications and updaters may need to execute other processes in order to run effectively. These are called ‘Child Processes’. In ‘Paranoid’, Train with Safe’ and ‘Clean PC modes’, Defense+ would raise an alert every time these child processes attempted to execute because they have no access rights. Whilst in one of these 3 modes, Comodo Internet Security will make it easy to install new applications that you trust by offering you the opportunity to temporarily engage ‘Installation Mode’ - which will temporarily bestow these child processes with the same access rights as the parent process - so allowing the installation to proceed without the usual alerts.

hi Dennis .thanks for on,when I install a new software I’ll switch to Installation Mode,before I choose “trusted application”. again, I thank you.

You have to choose Installer or Updater for Installation mode to work properly.

First alert is for explorer to run installer then next is for the installer this is when you choose Installer or Updater.
