    Hello,

    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';
    %PROGRAMFILES\*|
    %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\*|
    %APPDATA%\*|
    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\*|
    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\*|
    %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\*|
    %USERPROFILE%\Contacts\*|
    %USERPROFILE%\Cookies\*|
    %USERPROFILE%\Favorites\*|
    %USERPROFILE%\Links\*|
    %PUBLIC%\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.

    Hi.

    Could you write it for new CIS, please? I can't get Sandboxie to work...
    It seems much easier.

    Edit. I manage to start Origin.exe in CIS sandbox and BF3 outside of it, but what it should look like to work properly (especially online) ? Anybody can help me, please?
