Sometimes it’s necessary to disable Comodo Antivirus so that it doesn’t compromises the right functioning of other programs, for example a scan in progress by another antivirus/antimalware program.
Yesterday I did a test.
I created a simple BAT file, then I disabled Comodo to verify how that BAT file would have worked. In the tray icon of Comodo I disabled Antivirus, then Behavior Blocking, then I closed the tray icon by Exit.
Comodo seemed completely stopped.
When I started the BAT file, it didn’t work well. I saw only the Dos window and the blinking cursor. That’s all. Comodo Antivirus still stopped the program.
It’s always a good idea to disable any real-time scanning applications when running a scan with another product. Of course there’s going to be a performance hit when an on-access scanner wants to also scan every file that another scanner is attempting to scan…
And a note to the OP, selecting Exit from the tray icon merely closes the GUI. Any protections in place will continue to function if the GUI is closed.
If you want to see if any part of CIS is still operating, you will need to look in the task manager to see if any processes are still running. If you wish, you can end the processes from there.
