Purging your pending files will remove any files from the list that are no longer on your computer, most often temporary files from program installations. Anything left after the purge is still present, and if you check the box and select Lookup then CFP will compare those programs to Comodo’s list of safe programs (trustworthy programs, known to not be malware). Anything known to be safe will be removed from the list. The rest can be sent to Comodo to verify whether they should be added to the safe list or not.
Or you can just select all and Remove them, and you will also be down to 0 pending files. Either way, this won’t cause any conflicts.
And if you don’t like the hassle of dealing with pending files, switch Defense+ to safe mode like Vette said.
When you say clicking stealth my pc has no effect, do you mean the stealth ports wizard doesn’t run, or that your ports are not being stealthed (in response to a test like Shields Up)?
Pending files are references to certain files but they are not the files themself. Comodo just cannot delete files. Clean PC mode with pending files can help you out if you ever get infected but it can also be a pain. If you remove the files all you sre doing is removing them from the list Not your pc.
If you submit the pending files to Comodo for analysis, if they are found to be clean (no malware), they will be added to the safelist database. The safelist database is used to determine whether the firewall should pop an alert or not.
If the application trying to start is in the list and is marked as SAFE, then the firewall will allow it to start. If it’s not in the safelist, you’ll get an alert. Depending on how you respond, the file COULD be added to the pending list for submission to Comodo.
The more we all submit, the better and more intelligent the firewall/HIPS gets, the less alerts we all receive.
