For the simple reason it makes user thing they are safe, whether they is another matter.

It all depends on the users attitude.

As soon as one provides something the others follow, something Comodo has never done they only follow if something increases security, if not it is dropped.

While I understand your point no protection is 100 percent perfect in stopping malware. Then you have the situation that sometimes you would need to disable some module(s) for proper hardware driver and/or software installation. Suppose the hardware vendor f* things up and you get compromissed software in your PC (think CCleaner blunder esque situation). It might be far fetched but people will rarely upload drivers and alike to Virustotal and for proper installation like for example Intel GPU drivers (Manufacturer drivers) you need to disable some modules temporarly. So having your a** covered without implications aint nothing bad and can be acomplished with some simple HIPS rules. Plus we Comodo users are kinda paranoid aint we hahaha..  ;D

That could be true! Therefore we have the option of Hips-paranoid modus which I activated only once.  :o

Could be it's it's due to all the options/possibilities cis allows in contrary to other programs. I read years ago that users have not installed cis for this reason: I don't know what to do with comodo, apparently it's a comodo secret what to do with or how to handle cis.
And yet it is important to find insecurities or dangerous lacks and the staff of comodo will be greateful for it, surely.

Well Paranoid mode should IMO only be enabled after breaking the system in with "Create rules for safe applications" HIPS option so you get a base to build upon. I would say CIS/CFW is as complicated as you want it to be. Putting it in Pro Active mode and not changing things unless one understands would give excellent protection and not introduce any complications for novice users. For deeper customisation Comodo provides excellent manual for each release and while it might take some time to grasp what you read the information is pretty much applicable on other similar security softwares as for future usable knowledge.

For me CIS is the Rolls Royce of protection suites. I tried all other security suites and believe it or not but CIS is the most informative and easiest to use aswell as providing the best protection and  AV signatures is the least important. I could just disable the AV module and the other modules would stop 99,9% of the malware. Als due to non cluttered accessible menues and logs it feels relatively easy to use and understand while not trying to hide settings through hops of menu entries like many other security suites. And then we have the automatic sandbox feature and run-in sandbox systems.. pure gold!

I agree with you. The paranoid mode in HIPS, however, requires a lot of knowledge about what to allow and what not to allow and you need a lot of patience until it's through what I don't have. Nevertheless I am protected, still, without dangerous attacks.

It's a pity that the manual is only avalable in English. But who should do the translations?

Not a bug what you really want is a wish to add comodo keys to blocked protected registry for all applications.
