Why Comodo Firewall automatically create rules for safe applications (for example: msfeedsync.exe, iexplorer.exe, wmplayer.exe) when I have disabled(unchecked) feature “create rules for safe applications” ?
CIS will create some rules as required.
Previous versions which required a rule for everything meant I had a fairly large list of rules to manage.
Now, my list of rules is so much shorter and easier to manage.
This is not a bug.
sorry but ‘some as required’ is very misleading for me…
Option states clearly “create rules for safe applications” I have it UNCKECKED (and firewall behavior is not in training mode) so why when I test exe from auto generated rule by manual adding it in defence+ “my own safe files” I can’t add it and see message “comodo already has it on safe list” or something similar ?
situation for me is simple something is wrong…
“create auto for safe[…]” disabled + “safe mode” = no/null/zero/nada/zip auto generated rules for safe aplications and popups for “nonsafe/non listed on comodo online safe list or on my own safe list” applications
Comodo did not mention in manual shipped with software that “create rules for safe applications” disabled still will create “some” rules…
I do not want to enable back Defence+ and Sandox also have disabled (I used Defence+ for over a year and I am tired to fine tune its settings…)
I think this problem should not be linked with Defence+ configuration… if it really does it looks like a bug to me very sorry for repeatitions but I must write it again NO AUTO CREATION means NO AUTO CREATION for me
Could You perform another test for me? with D+ and Sandbox disabled ? I am in work now and going home after couple of hours but I can’t wait to see results from test with D+ and Sanbox disabled 8)
another thing that I have changed is alert setting to lowest
few days ago I started to use Windows 7 HomeGroup feature and besides that I have disabled media streaming feature “svchost.exe” listens very often on 1900 port (uPnP) maybe it is essential for HomeGroup working at all but:
COMODO FIREWALL AUTOMATICALLY CREATES for me MULTIPLE RULES for “svchost.exe” for outgoing port 1900 and few more other… WHY ???
before using Homegroup comodo created one rule for outgoing any port for svchost.exe and few other apps
