Registry Entries Exclusions

okay…so no one has addressed this that I can find. There where plenty of things for registry removals, but I want to find out more about what I should have my registry cleaner ignore (ya know, actually keeping registry entries cause comodo is finally doing what its supposed to!!! (R) ) concerning Comodo v.3.x?

I am running dual OS’

Windows XP Pro (x86)
Vista Ultimate (x64)

The rest of my set up is in my sig. btw (B) havn’t had a need to uninstall it for a while so its about time we look at setting up other software/apps to work with it, i think at least. I’m also having some issues with Defense+ that all seem to be related to reg changes and what not. Also, im using CCleaner on the XP side and Vista Manager on the Vista side…

I am not sure what your problem is. Registry cleaners are a bad idea. Which one are you using? What are you trying to do uninstall Comodo?

By no means… (V) !!! I have just been experiencing problems with my Defense+ monitor (sometimes firewall events as well) and I think they always seem to co-respond to basic PC upkeep…

I would agree with this if software manufacture’s made stable, self-cleaning, safe systems and applications…however, this is not the reality of things like say Service Pack $…I wonder how many Vista is going to end up getting…also, third party apps sometimes only concentrate on getting the software on your system (i.e. Comodo v.3 first release…how many posts can you find on registry left over after trying to uninstall the earlier versions of v3) or when it updates it leaves behind trash it just doesn’t need. Basically, I want to protect any vital Comodo files, recistry entries, and/or folders from my clean-up utilities.

As far as which one’s I use view the following:

Windows XP Pro(x86): CCleaner/Spybot
Vista Ultimate(x64): Vista Manager/Spybot

Really, in these days of Microsoft and other nameless file ■■■■■■ giants, registry cleaning, junk file cleaning, registry defrag, and file( HDD) defrag are a must for ultimate performance of today’s daily desktop. Just as important as Malware and Firewall protection.

I only use CCleaner and have had Comodo installed on 2 pc’s since Jan of this year and not one problem. If you use trust worthy programs that only clean up dead entries then don’t worry about it. Before you run any cleaner your suppose to run through the list yourself and uncheck anything you do not want to delete. What kind of problems are you experiencing with D+? If you asking what registry entries not to delete so Comodo will still function properly I do not know that. There are several entries. your best bet is not to use a registry cleaner and if you do then simply back up your registry before doing anything. Any program I have ever used gives you the option top back uop your registry.

I am asking what files and registry entries belong to Comodo firewall so I can tell my cleaning utilities to ignore them. Kinda like the files and registry entries I want Comodo to ignore in its safe list(s) and such…

Maybe this can answer your question. The sticky at the top of the forum page “Comprehensive Instruction for Removal of CFP”. There’s a whole bunch of registry paths listed, among other things. Meaning that if you delete these, then it’s not going to work. Then to answer your question about a safelist, I’ll say, don’t delete those entries.

Does that help?

What registry program are you using? If it is a reliable one then it shouldn’t delete anything that is needed.

holy freakin cow thats a ■■■■ load…hope i can do some global excluding!!!

CCleaner for my XP machine
Vista Manager for my Vista machine

One would hope that you would not need to add anything like this to a cleaner but sometimes ya never know…

btw thnx (:NRD)
