Reentering password multiple times per "session".

A. THE BUG/ISSUE (Varies from issue to issue)
[ol]- Summary - Give a clear summary in the topic subject, NOT here.

  • Can U reproduce the problem & if so how reliably?: Every time.
  • If U can, exact steps to reproduce. If not, exactly what U did & what happened:
    a: Double click on CIS from the taskbar to bring to the desktop.
    b: Click on anything that requires a password, dialog box opens, change a setting, and close dialog box.
    c: Click on something else requiring a password.
  • If not obvious, what U expected to happen: I expected after bringing CIS to the desktop, that being considered “a single work session” and not require multiple inputs of my password. Once minimized back to the taskbar, that would signal the end of the “work session” and/or a specific time without interaction with CIS.
  • If a software compatibility problem have U tried the conflict FAQ?: N/A
  • Any software except CIS/OS involved? If so - name, & exact version: N/A
  • Any other information, eg your guess at the cause, how U tried to fix it etc: N/A

B. YOUR SETUP (Likely the same for each issue, so you can copy forward)
[ol]- Exact CIS version & configuration: COMODO Internet Security v6.3.300670.2970.

  • Modules enabled & level. D+/HIPS, Autosandbox/BBlocker, Firewall, & AV: All maxed.
  • Have U made any other changes to the default config? (egs here.): N/A
  • Have U updated (without uninstall) from a CIS 5?: No.
    [li]if so, have U tried a a clean reinstall - if not please do?: N/A
    [/li]- Have U imported a config from a previous version of CIS: N/A
    [li]if so, have U tried a standard config - if not please do: N/A
    [/li]- OS version, SP, 32/64 bit, UAC setting, account type, V.Machine used: Win v8.1 x64, UAC second to bottom, Admin, and N/A.
  • Other security/s’box software a) currently installed b) installed since OS:
    a: Window’s Firewall
    b: Spybot - Search & Destroy
    c: SpywareBlaster

I think this is likely intended behavior. If you change one setting, and then select OK, I think it makes sense to have to re-enter the password if you want to alter another. This would protect from situations such as forgetting and walking away from the computer, and then allowing someone else the opportunity to change the settings. Thus, assuming I am understanding this correct, in my eyes this is not a bug.

However, I do like the idea of allowing for a certain period of time during which the password does not need to be re-entered. Please add that to the wishlist.
