Unnamed item consistently wanting direct screen access

Hi, I’ve been using CFP for a few weeks, love it. However, just today, I’m getting a lot of pop-ups about " is trying to access the screen directly." And that’s literally what it says. Some unnamed process that I can’t track down keeps wanting screen access, and no matter if I tell CFP to Allow, Block, or Treat it as ____ you name it, it keeps popping up. I was wondering if anyone has had this happen and could advise me. It’s annoying, as I can’t do things on Firefox while it pops up.

I primarily use Firefox and I just upgraded to AVG 8.0 today, I think that could have something to do with it, but… I don’t know how to fix it if that’s true.

I’ve been having the exact same problem since the last update. Running vista sp1 here…

same thing happening with me except I upgraded to avg 8.0 a while ago so im pretty sure its not that, it must be something to do with the new update because since I updated its been doing that mind you I have restarted so… yea.

I don’t use AVG, so it’s surely not that…

I don’t use any AV at the moment… Fresh install…

Have you tried a remember to see if anything shows up in the D+/Computer Security Policy list?

Yes., nothing ever gets added… And it keeps bugging you…

I notice it a lot when opening media player classic… But it happens all over…

restart fixed it

Well, I haven’t seen it pop up all today, but since I didn’t actually do anything, I’m not sure what that means. It may just not be under the right circumstances. Maybe it is just a restart that will fix.

Let us know please :slight_smile:


Hi! This happens to me too. CFP starts continuously pop-ups warning about processes trying to access the screen directly. Sometimes is an unnamed process and sometimes is well-known applications, like Firefox. It doesn’t matter if I check “Remember my answer” or if I change to “Trusted Application”, it continues popping up. I restarted CFP and the PC and nothing changes. All this happens since last update. The version I’m using is I hope that you can help me, now that I was happy of getting rid of that ■■■■ of ZoneAlarm…

The new update is causing problems. I will be using a DVD program it will want to “Take control” or some other ■■■■■■■■ “recording keystroke” of every program it’ll take me forever to keep acceping random ■■■■■■■■.

Why is the new version causing so many problems?

I still Love Comodo though. (R)

Hi Guys,

Can you try uninstalling and reinstalling CFP? This might happen if some files could not be updated properly.

Thank you for the cooperation,
