A. THE BUG/ISSUE (Varies from issue to issue) Can you reproduce the problem & if so how reliably?:
Tried several origin games, each time comodo created ghost paths in the question. Example: C:…\origin~1\game~1.
This leads to never ending questions.
Even if you make a real rule manually, comodo doesnt see it. Even if there are several IDENTICAL ghost path rules at place, comodo asks again. If you can, exact steps to reproduce. If not, exactly what you did & what happened:
Here is another case of someone else. He gets ghost paths with ~2 … i get them with ~1
One or two sentences explaining what actually happened:
Comodo is not usable at all. Its asking no matter what you do One or two sentences explaining what you expected to happen:
That it works like the years before If a software compatibility problem have you tried the advice to make programs work with CIS?:
Its the new version itself. With version 7 all is fine again. Any software except CIS/OS involved? If so - name, & exact version:
No Any other information, eg your guess at the cause, how you tried to fix it etc:
It doesnt happen with every file. But if it happens, you cant use comodo at all.
It affects fw and d+ (couldnt test autosandbox)
B. YOUR SETUP Exact CIS version & configuration:
version 8, april Modules enabled & level. D+/HIPS, Autosandbox/BBlocker, Firewall, & AV:
fw, d+, av, everything else disabled. proactive, safe d+, custom fw. Have you made any other changes to the default config? (egs here.):
I did what i allways do. Have you updated (without uninstall) from CIS 5, 6 or 7?:
Have you imported a config from a previous version of CIS:
OS version, SP, 32/64 bit, UAC setting, account type, V.Machine used:
win 7 64 Other security/s’box software a) currently installed b) installed since OS, including initial trial security software included with system:
C. ATTACH REQUIRED FILES (delete this section (section C) after attaching required files)
Ditto the above bugs under Win 7 x64 and 18.104.22.16808.
Firewall rules are getting ignored. Thus Comodo tries to recreate already existing rules from the alert popup and continues to generate the alert popup despite the existing rule handling it.
svchost.exe is presented as a separate app despite its clear presence as a member of the Windows System Applications file group.
Comodo sometimes requires two separate application rules for the same app, for example, “C:.…\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” and “\Device\HarddiskVolume2.…\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe”
Before my last reboot, Comodo would not show any alert windows despite the log showing ongoing requests were “Asked.” Now after my last reboot, alert windows are popping up every few seconds and dismissing themselves within a half second.
Comodo is notorious for releasing non-functional, bug-laden firewall updates. Like a dupe I keep trusting Comodo and installing them. And here I am a again with a non-functional firewall. Doh.
Anyone knows how to downgrade to the previous version without losing all the settings and rules?
This version is completely unworkable!
I should make it a habit not to upgrade software that runs fine… :-\
Agreed. Please post if you find a way to downgrade to something stable. I imagine just transferring the config files might work if one stays within 8.x, but I read elsewhere all of 8.x has problems.
If I had the choice I’d still be on 5.X which was simple and just worked. But I presume newer versions close security vulnerabilities and a firewall with vulnerabilities is not much of a firewall. That’s why I feel chained to this unending parade of dysfunctional upgrades that break basic firewall functionality.
