settings for defense +

I have had defense + in the training mode for about two or three weeks and I’m ready to move it to a permanent spot with less popups, so which one should I do thats simple? thanks for any reply


I would recommend safe mode or PC Clean Mode,

Safe Mode: Checks the “Safe List” Before automatically allowing it

Clean PC Mode: Everything on PC is assumed Safe, everything else that is introduced to the machine gets alerted

Did this help?

CIS should not have been kept in Training Mode for that long. I recommend running a few scans to make sure it is clean.

You have three options:

Paranoid Mode:

-most alerts
-highest security level
-Defense+ monitors and control all executable files apart from those that you have deemed safe.
-Comodo Internet Security will not attempt to learn the behavior of any applications including those on the Comodo safe list.
-recommended for advanced users that require complete awareness of activity on their system.

Safe Mode:

-Defense+ will automatically learns the activity of executables and applications certified as ‘Safe’ by Comodo. and automatically creates ‘Allow’ rules for these activities.
-non-certified, unknown, applications, you will generate an alert whenever it attempts to run.
-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.
-recommended option on a new computer or one that the user knows to be clean of malware
-From this point onwards Defense+ will alert the user whenever a new, unrecognized application is being installed.
-In this mode, My Pending Files are excluded from being considered as clean and are monitored and controlled.

Thanks for the quick respond, I have it set to scan every wed, and three weeks gave it time to learn my habits and its clean no problems but, I’ll run another scan before setting it , I know of these option thats why I ask what would be the best in your opinion, Jacob, thanks for your recommendation.

I would say Safe Mode.

Thanks, just finished scanning and all is clean, so safe mode it is
