I like the trusted vendors list, but I dont like that some companies/programs such as AOL (AOL Software, AIM, AIM Toolbar), iMesh, IncreibleMail, Google (Chromo), Ask.com (Toolbar) etc. so I removed em from the list. But would like a feature to block vendors as of those so that their programs cant be installed on my pc. It gets annoying having to download the program and then put it as blocked item and sometimes that doesnt stop it from being installed, and when they update some of the programs I have to re-download the new one and have it blocked again.
Unless I’m missing a way you can block such Vendors or programs so they cant be installed
Of course, for such a thing to function, CIS would need to stop repopulating vendors deleted from the list on every update. (I absolutely hate that functionality… I deleted the vendor, respect my choice please.)
I have the following issues with the trusted vendors list:
I do not like when Comodo adds back a vendor that I have deleted (same as HeffeD). One method of dealing with this problem is shown the attached picture. In this case, you do not need to delete the vendor, you just enable or disable the trusted status.
I do not like Comodo adding a trusted vendor to the list without my knowledge or approval. When an update includes additions to the trusted vendor list, the user should be given the option to either 1) automatically add trusted vendors to the list or 2) show the user a list of the new additions and let the user assign a trusted/not-trusted status to each one before they populate the main list.
