taskeng.exe constantly blocked by comodo

since the update to 3.8 i noticed that on the summary screen under proactive defense, defense plus has blocked way more suspects attempts than before. when i look under defense plus i see that its the same file called taskeng.exe. Here are the details:

FILE: c:\windows\system32\taskeng.exe
ACTION: access memory
TARGET: c:\program files\comodo\comodo internet security\cfp.exe

I have submitted the file to http://camas.comodo.com/cgi-bin/ and it came out clean.

BTW i am using windows vista 32 bit

This was also my question, and the reason why I registered at this forum. I hope someone will come up with an answer - as I got it, this is a safe windows file (comodo does recognise it as a trusted file as well!!) that should be allowed to run. Or…?

Best regards,

Don’t worry it’s fine

Ah, I see -
and I guess we will leave it like that - taskeng.exe always wanting to update, and Comodo always keeping it blocked… Well, if that is the way, I will live with it. The only disadvantage will be, is that I will never be able to see (in between the avalanches of notifications of taskeng.exe) the other blocked applications anymore…

Thanks for the answer so far!

mongoosita and all,

This should be the fix you are looking for.



I just found it five minutes ago, and looking to the log file, it works! This was indeed exactly wat I (and the others?) needed.

Thanks for the effort, I hopes it helps more people out.
