Hi, I have just installed COMODO Firewall, and I must say, it IS better than Windows XP SP2 Firewall.
I do have 1 concern though.
In today’s world of USB Flashdrives, one must have specialized protection against USB Flashdrive threats. I opted for USB Disk Security by zbshareware.com (I only have the shareware version).
Too bad for zbshareware, they didn’t digitally sign the darn thing. So Proactive Defense keeps on blocking USB Disk Security’s “access memory” attempts (target: cmdagent.exe).
I try to put it in “My Own Safe Files” list, only for Defense+ to tell me that, “USBGuard.exe is already a safe file.”
So I try doing something about it under Defense+ → Advance → Computer Security Policy. I set the USBGUard.exe process as “Trusted Application”. But Proactive Defense still blocks its “access memory” attempts.
In fact, the only way I could stop the Proactive Defense list of blocked suspicious attempts from getting longer is if I set the Defense+ Settings to “Disabled”.
What can I do about this? I am at a loss. COMODO people, please help me.
As Dennis has done it in pictures lets try it in steps.Remember we need to “Add” the USBGuard.exe and any others associated with the application to the “Interprocess memory access”/Exclusion list for Comodo Internet Security.
1.Defence+/Advanced/Computer Security Policy
2.In the list locate the entry “Comodo Internet Security” and double click it
3.Click on “Protection Settings”
4.Click on “Modify” next to “Interprocess Memory Access”(a window will appear called exceptions)
5.Click on “Add” then Running Processes then double click USBGuard.exe(and any other associated)–>You should now see it appear in the exceptions list at the bottom.
6.APPLY to close all windows
7.Repeat the above to the point where you get to the exceptions window to make sure it is there
