I UN-installed v5.8 and ran Jacob’s UNinstall tool, but about 18 Registry Keys had Access Denied barriers.
I am concerned that these residual keys could have degraded what should have been a clean install.
To install I unchecked Cloud Based Behaviour, and customised to uncheck GeekBuddy (that was a bit sneaky)
I set Configure options to Accept Defense+ and to minimise security alerts.
Then I installed and was disappointed to find there was no Antivirus, so I thought I had been misled in my download.
I rebooted prior to undeleting and then saw that A.V. now appeared.
Is that normal ?
I do not know if the following is a correct new default or if those old registry keys have influenced the following 5 items which I have not touched.
Till now I have not wanted to trust what has been a new feature with possible glitches.
I now am concerned about whether to :-
normally enable sandbox apart from when I choose to enable a change - and possibly forget to disable for an installation and not realise my mistake until I next reboot;
or normally disable apart from when I wish to run a risk - and possible forget to apply protection when needed.
Think this other FAQ from Chiron may help more here.
Worth also saying (don’t think the FAQ does) that running the uninstall tool twice with a reboot between may be needed. Also, fairly obviously you should disable defence plus before using it for the first time, if you have not used the standard uninstaller first
This is basically to prevent CIS stopping its own uninstall
You should be running it with admin privs too of course
I think the download of cfw_installer caused this, you downloaded the ‘Firewall’ preset version of CIS which has other defaults as the ‘Internet Security’ version of CIS which you had installed previously.
