Hi, I’ve just installed an application called CommentHut - I have two questions about when I try and run it:
Comodo Firewall, states that CommentHut is trying to access the Protected COM for Shell.Explorer.2 - what is this about?
CommentHut then tries for ‘modify the user interface’ of every program I have running at the time - including Comodo’s own cpf.exe as well as background programs such as explorer.exe, taskeng.exe and rundll32.exe - is this somewhat unusual?
If I block all of the modification attempts in point 2 - then the CommentHut program will not run.
I’m a bit worried about running this program - so any help is most welcome.
Thanks OmeletGuy, I’m not quite sure what this is saying the installation is doing. I installed the program already - so how bad exactly is it? Or is it just a case that it is doing a few naughty things?
Cheers Eric, this is the first program that as caught me off-guard like this. Usually I find it pretty clear cut if a program is malicious or not - this time I just can’t decide. I guess that means it’s best not to use the program. Though it really would be nice to know…
Its Not good, and may destroy a cuple files acroding to Anubis, i would say remove it.
