Windows Task Manager Conflict?

Is it that we are not supposed to use the windows Task Manager after we use the Comodo?

I can call up the task manager, no problem. But i can’t kill any task. Every time I needed to kill a task which gone bad (e.g. IE gone crazy…) with the task manager, the task manager froze! and letting the already gone bad task to continue to go worse… That’s really bad!

I know I can do it in Comodo → Defense+ → Active Process, and kill task from there. But the only problem is that, the Comodo tray icon and GUI aren’t always responses. A lot of time I try to call the Comodo from the tray icon, nothing happen, no matter how i click it, how many times I clicked, nor how hard i clicked!

And By the way, is it possible that the future Comodo can have a selectable function to recognize windows system & essential program (e.g. taskmgr.exe ?), and set the rules automatically? Or atleast have a rule template ready for user who would like to include these program by selection? Thanks


No, CIS is not trying to replace Task Manager. Set D+ to ‘Training Mode’ and then try to terminate a program (remember to set D+ back to its previous mode after).

If that works, go to D+ > Advanced > Comp. Sec. Policy and find the ‘taskmgr.exe’ entry, right click, ‘edit’, click access right, and allow all ‘Inter process Memory Access’ and ‘Process Terminations’ if not already set. :slight_smile:

What mode do you have D+ in?
Looks like Safe Mode is what you’re looking for.

Safe Mode:

“While monitoring critical system activity, Defense+ will automatically learn the activity of executables and applications certified as ‘Safe’ by Comodo. It will also automatically create ‘Allow’ rules these activities. For non-certified, unknown, applications, you will receive an alert whenever that application attempts to run. Should you choose, you can add that new application to the safe list by choosing ‘Treat this application as a Trusted Application’ at the alert. This will instruct the Defense+ not to generate an alert the next time it runs. If your machine is not new or known to be free of malware and other threats as in ‘Clean PC Mode’ then Train with Safe Mode’ is recommended setting for most users - combining the highest levels of security with an easy-to-manage number of Defense+ alerts.” :wink:
