Repeated requests to authorize the same application V3.9.95478.509 X32

Regardless of how many times I tell CIS that fpdisp6.exe (FinePrint dispatcher) is a “trusted system application”, it requires that I re-authorize it every time I try to print from another application. I always respond “allow this request” and “remember my response”. I have even gone in and authorized fpdisp6.exe from the list of running applications (it’s a virtual printer driver).

I just recreated this scenario (for the umpteenth time) by printing from, got the request to approve (CIS_Requested.jpg) and responded as usual (CIS_Approved.jpg) and it worked… but the next time I print from another application, CIS will have completely forgotten about this and still say that “fpdisp.exe is a new executable and is not recognized” – sheesh :=)

  • Windows XP SP3
  • CPU 32bit
  • CIS for firewall/anti-virus
  • Firewall Security = safe mode
  • Defense+ Security = Clean PC Mode (see attached screen shot)
  • Using Administrator account
  • No advanced modifications

It would be very helpful to have CIS remember what you tell it…

thanks very much! …jon

Hi Jon, welcome to the Comodo forums.

This topic is currently locked, which I’m assuming was a mistake. So, I’ll unlock it.

The reasons for this I think is because you’re in Clean PC Mode (note the 2,065 files that are waiting for review). I cannot be certain, but if fpdisp.exe was reviewed & moved to your Own Safe Files, then CIS will probably not prompt for it any more.
