  6. Tip of the Day Many people think that 'formatting' a hard drive will wipe out all the data so it cannot be recovered
    Not so. To prevent the possibility of future recovery, use a third-party, low-level hard drive formatting tool, such as Killdisk (downloadable at no charge from www.killdisk.com) to overwrite data on the hard drive with a random sequence of 1's and 0's.

Configuring Comodo Defense+ against EA's Origin

    I've added the following configuration to Comodo's Defense+ to protect against EA's 'spyware' Origin application. EA have updated their user agreement to state that they do not collect personal data to sell to third-parties, however I still see access attempts to program data. This not only violates privacy, but also slows down your system immensely. Here's a way to counter Origin snooping around your PC while adding extra protection overall.

    Under Comodo's interface, click on Defense+, select Network Security Policy, then select Groups... on the right pane.

    A 'File Groups' window will appear, click Add > A New Group...

    Choose File Group Name input 'Program DATA'
    Under this, right click and select Add...
    then input the following one at a time under 'Add new item';
    %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\*|

    Select OK

    Then under Computer Security Policy > Protected Files and Folders select Add > File Groups > Program DATA (or whatever name you gave the group)

    This should also protect against any unknown malware that attempts to access these areas. Peace of mind is everything.
