Thanks for the effort guys but still no luck. The only time it connects or the copy and paste problem goes away is when I turn off the two and let the firewall alone run. And yea, I tried all suggestions so far.
I had this same problem, but now it’s working fine. How? I don’t know exactly, but try that:
1 - Disable both Defense & SandBox
2 - Login in messenger
3 - Goto Defense+ → Advanced → Computer Security Policy → Add → Select → Running Processes → And then select the MSN (msnmsgr.exe)
4 - Use a Predefined Policy → Trusted App, then Apply & Apply
5 - Goto SandBox → Programs in SandBox → make sure that MSN is not there
6 - Turn back on both Defense+ & SandBox
7 - Use your MSN as normal, don’t close it yet.
8 - After some time, comodo will ask msn for some permissions, always mark they as “Trusted” or “Windows Application” (don’t forget to check ‘always…’)
9 - Be happy
I strongly advice no to set MSN Messenger as Windows Application. It can then start up other applications without notification. In case it would get infected by a virus the virus would have full reign over Messenger.
I don’t remember why, but at some point Comodo Defense asked for some action by MSN and the options were not that good (something like block or treat as windows system app). But in “Computer Security Policy” the MSN is still just “Trusted Application”, so I guess is not a big deal 8)
About a week ago. I let the computer on and went to sleep; when I come back I had several Comodo popup windows.
I think maybe Comodo updated itself and wanted to refresh some settings.
But this caused me a lot of trouble for 3 days! bacause I couldn’t log in Messenger (Windows Live) Until I find this post. Thanks MagusBR.
I can log in Messenger with Defense & Sandbox disabled. But I have to do it every single time!
When I try to add MSN to Defense I says its already there (it is)
And my snadbox seems empty.
Can you make sure the file is not also in My Pending Files at the same time. If so, please remove it from there.
Also read Mouse1’s Introduction to the v5 Sandbox (see my signature) and How can I prevent software being sandboxed? and see if that brings any help.
