Geez, I expected the cutesy title of this thread would draw 'em like flies, but only 166 views so far! 166, compared to 1000+ views for a generic -titled (“Complaint!!!”) thread someone started the same day.
Anyhow, now that I’ve had Comodo BOClean running on this PC for several days, it seems like a fine (stable, no-frills, dedicated purpose) app. I keep hearing (er, reading) how it’s the best, bar none, at what it does… but "Where’s The Beef?"™ ???
Same as with CyberHawk, after installing BOClean I’m sitting here thinking “Yah. This is like installing those AS SEEN ON TV ™(probably another tm) anti-deer whistles on your car. I know them deers is out there somewheres, and I ain’t hardly had none of ‘em run inta my car since I installed them there whistles… so them gizmos must be workin’ like they sez”
I think I’ve read through all the docs (both the marketing spiel and the support ‘page’) and nowhere have I found any meaty specifics, similar to those being touted by “competing brands”, ala:
Main uses …
Each capability of ProcessGuard is powerful in its own right. For example, a program which simply blocked a rootkit trojan from installing would be very valuable in its own right, yet this is just one feature of ProcessGuard! Here is just a brief list of some of the main uses of ProcessGuard:
Securing processes from being attacked (terminated, suspended, modified)
Controlling which programs are/aren't allow to run
Blocking rootkit trojans and other malicious drivers from installing
Protecting physical memory from malicious modification
Blocking hooks and code injections
Determining which programs are being executed on your system
Determining which programs are attacking others on your system
Analysing the inter-process behaviors of programs
Keeping a log of all programs that execute (important for post-infection analysis)
Main attacks ProcessGuard blocks …
ProcessGuard protects against so many different types of attacks that it’s difficult to combine them all into one list (for example, although it protects against process termination it secures over a dozen different “termination vectors” in order to accomplish this, so really it’s protecting you against a lot more than just one attack).
Here are the main classes of attacks that ProcessGuard can protect against:
Unwanted/unknown process execution
Rootkit trojan installation
Firewall leaktest bypass methods
Hooks and code injections
Physical memory malicious modifications
Windows File Protection attacks
User Imitation attacks
I wound up choosing the title for this thread upon realizating that in numerous posts I’ve been ■■■■■-footing
around, trying to find specifics (features, functionality) AFTER having installed the app. Gently, gently, because the limited response my earlier, more pointed/challenging post, in the “BOClean vs ??” thread
suggested that the ranks of happily enthusiastic users are similarly unenlightened.
Do ya get out much?
The marketspace shared by BOClean is is now occupied by DOZENS of competing brands. Each of them is claiming best-in-class functionality; to keep pace, Comodo needs to improve BOClean’s “sales pitch” by providing details – perhaps even to the extent of creating a feature comparison chart.
Don’t worry about the details.
We don’t explain them because you wouldn’t understand them anyhow.
It’s a black box. It’s free. Trust us. Install it.
posted with sincere appreciation toward MrKevin and Comodo for bringing this much-needed app “to the masses”
