I am doing an experiment, I am adding my entire C drive to trusted files, to see what happens............
So far, so good. I am without trusted vendors, without cloud lookup, and with a humongous trusted files list.
Yesterday I got a Microsoft update for Office products, and Comodo automatically recognized Microsoft as a trusted installer (this is different from "trusted vendors"). The update went without a hitch.
This is not exactly how Comodo was intended to be used, but if it works, why not?

I don't know, i ask you how you did.
Can you post some screenshots of your settings?

This pictures are from my virtual PC for testing Comodo.

If you untick trusted installers, like you showed, won't you have a problem with Windows updates?
The only difference in my settings is that I left a check by "Trust files installed by trusted installers".

If you untick "Trust applications signed by trusted vendors", like shown in your screenshot, then you save yourself the need to delete the entries on the trusted vendors list.

If you want to trust a few vendors, then leave a check by "Trust applications signed by trusted vendors".
And before you add your C drive to trusted files, first set up the trusted vendors list the way you like. This will save time in the end, if you do it in this order.

Well I only recently returned to using CFW 10 and I must say in all honesty that it has matured far more than I imagined it ever would become and that is a nice surprise from my end to learn of with this current version.

One item that escapes my understanding though I like cleared up, on the Unblock List, if you Unblock anything in that particular list, CFW declares it will not alert to it again.

Is there some form or fashion to simply just clearing that list without fear that the unblocked item(s) will remain unblocked indefinitely to not be alerted on again and as such be allowed all the time afterwards?

People have requested a way to clear the list, I assume that the feature will be included in a coming update of Comodo. At present, the only way to clear it is to click unblock on the items, and then you have to go and manually delete the rules it creates in HIPS and Containment and Firewall, if you don't want those rules. Once the file becomes trusted, the rules are basically superfluous, but on the other hand, they probably won't hurt you.

Glad my post got moved here where this falls into line much better for addressing this question and other quips.

Ok, not really at this time any issue on this end but was curious if at present there was some setting for that maybe overlooked.

I am not going to be shy about it. I am really hooked on this version and is by far the best in all the times that I ever used it before which if I remember correctly was way back on 5 and 6 as Defense+

Thanks for the reply on that.

@Umbra- That's v.8 and although maybe mostly similar a v.10 rewrite might be a worthy gesture just to keep things current?

@EASTER and welcome on the forum ;)

don't be shy here, you can ask noobish and even stupid questions , no one will slap you; except maybe me :p
Wouldn't expect anything less at this point would you? :D

Happy to be a part of another forum in MalwareTips here.

Where do you think the draw on some quality inspiration came from to join up? :rolleyes:

He means look at how they formatted their configuration and copy that format with your settings in this thread.
Well, i see.. But i don't mean to share the entire settings. Just want to share a few additional Rules in HIPS to protect (lock) some critical Registry keys if a user accidentally set HIPS to allow Malware to run.
