newadvsplash.dll in My Pending Files [RESOLVED]

I have Firefox Portable version on my system and it seems to scatter newadvsplash.dll in the temp folder. This is not a problem as you can see that it’s saved in the temp directory.
But the problem is that Comodo’s My Pending Files always has a long list of this file -depending on how many firefox I’m running-.
I’ve tried to lookup then submit the file without any luck to get this file removed from My Pending Files, so I have to remove all those files every now and then.

What’s the best way to overcome this issue?
Exclude this file -with regexp- to not be included in My Pending Files? if so, how?
Or what?

Simply put D+ in Safe mode then you don’t have to deal with pending files. I have the Firewall and D+ set to Safe mode.

Is it safe to put D+ on the Safe Mode all the time?
Isn’t Safe Mode an exception rather than a general mode?

No not at all. Read the help file system. Here is a quote. Safe mode is a very powerful mode actually. One notch down from paranoid. I think your getting confused with training mode.

Paranoid Mode: This is the highest security level setting and means that Defense+ will monitor and control all executable files apart from those that you have deemed safe. The firewall will not attempt to learn the behavior of any applications - even those applications on the Comodo safe list. and will only use your configuration settings to filter critical system activity. Similarly, the firewall will not automatically create ‘Allow’ rules for any executables - although you still have the option to treat an application as ‘Trusted’ at the Defense+ alert. Choosing this option will generate the most amount of Defense+ alerts and is recommended for advanced users that require complete awareness of activity on their system.

Safe Mode: While monitoring critical system activity, the firewall will automatically learn the activity of executables and applications certified as ‘Safe’ by Comodo. It will also automatically create ‘Allow’ rules these activities. For non-certified, unknown, applications, you will receive an alert whenever that application attempts to run. Should you choose, you can add that new application to the safe list by choosing ‘Treat this application as a Trusted Application’ at the alert. This will instruct the firewall not to generate an alert the next time it runs. If your machine is not new or known to be free of malware and other threats as in ‘Clean PC Mode’ then Safe Mode’ is recommended setting for most users - combining the highest levels of security with an easy-to-manage number of Defense+ alerts.

Clean PC Mode: From the time you set the slider to ‘Clean PC Mode’, Defense+ will learn the activities of the applications currently installed on the computer while all new executables introduced to the system are monitored and controlled. This patent-pending mode of operation is the recommended option on a new computer or one that the user knows to be clean of malware and other threats. From this point onwards Defense+ will alert the user whenever a new, unrecognized application is being installed. In this mode, the files in ‘My Pending Files’ are excluded from being considered as clean and are monitored and controlled.

‘Installation Mode: Installer applications and updaters may need to execute other processes in order to run effectively. These are called ‘Child Processes’. In ‘Paranoid’, 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 Firewall Pro 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 aler

Safe Mode will learn all your applications while maintaining great security. The pop ups will die down after a while once is learns your used applications. Then it will identify & ask for new/unknown ones where you can take action.

During installation/uninstallation be sure to “Treat this application as installer/updater” < For zero pop ups during that procedure.

+1 on Vettetech.


I confused with the Safe Mode since the default mode in D+ is Clean PC Mode.
These great responses enlightened me.
Thank all.

Look at my reply #3. That is right out of the help section that comes with Comodo. If you don’t want pending files use Safe mode. If you want them then use Clean PC mode but if you read each explanation you will understand.

Thanks 3xist


I told you the same in reply #3.

I was quoting Vettetech on the Important bits. So thank him lol Don’t worry about :wink:
