Hello, Can I safely add iexplore.exe to My Own Safe Files? After adding it to the list, I still get a pop up when downloading a file but it is orange instead of red. Also, it seems to be more accurate to what I am doing. Will this cause any security problems?
I respectfully disagree. Browsers can be quite unsafe. Malware can be delivered simply by browsing a malicious website, if your security doesn’t defend against the drive-by attack vectors. The unsafe nature of browsers is why Vista runs Internet Explorer 7 in protected mode (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb250462.aspx).
+1, in vista, IE is not allowed to modify any file system if it gets attacked and virused. that’s what says MS.
the virused IE7 shouldnt be able to attack vista system.
and the post was about Iexplorer so i guess it’s internet explorer.
so, i didnt install java for years now, maybe i’m too paranoid but i banned java, so when a website needs java, i go somewhere else. i install it once a year to pay year state taxes on gouv site then i recover my system that i backuped before installing java…
am i too paranoid or java is really as dangerous as i imagine?
explore.exe is added to the system as a result of the GRAYBIRD.G virus. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system. If found on your system make sure that you have downloaded the latest update for your antivirus application

My post was about iexplore.exe which is the main executable for Microsoft Internet Explorer. My Own Safe Files relates to Defense+. When I download a file, Comodo’s pop up is red and doesn’t recognize iexplore.exe. I can’t understand this since it is a well known browser. When I added iexplore.exe to the safe list in Defense+, Comodo recognizes it.
What is the difference if iexplore.exe (Internet Explorer) is on or off My Own Safe Files list?
Is Internet Explorer safer if it’s not on the list?
For programs that are on the whitelist, whether Comodo’s or on your safe list, actions between whitelisted entries are learned instead of alerted, if in a Defense+ mode that does such. If you’re using Paranoid mode, as I do, then it doesn’t matter whether it’s on the whitelist or not.
