Hello people.
I have a problem with Comodo Firewall and Zemana. I can not update zemana real-time protection. If anyone knows any settings to avoid this thank you very much in advance.

Try to disable all off Comodo Protection and Update Zemana again to make sure that Comodo is not Blocking it.

I disabled the firewall and zemana updated its signature database.
If that worked, you might be able to add a single rule for the update that will allow it to work automatically. First, check to see if you have a rule for ZAM by typing ZAM in the Application header in Firewall->Application Rules (click on magnify symbol to type). If you have an allow rule already, probably something is blocking a temp file used during the update. If there isn't one there, you can try making the new allow rule for ZAM.exe and maybe that will do it for you.

I was just looking at the update process for ZAM by following it though with NVT ERP. It never has worked for me either, but I haven't taken the time to unblock it with NVT ERP yet. That's been the problem. It's kind of a complicated download and update process, and I have to add some allow settings to NVT for it to work.

Woops I see you have Zemana anti-logger not Zemana anti-malware :oops:. I think the ZAM.exe MAC to MAC rule is going to be for monitoring the local network for some reason. No problem there and you should leave that one as is, but you need an IP rule for In or Out (All) set to Allow. Anyway, don't know what the ZAL process name is (ZAL.exe?), but you should be able to see it in Task Mgr. Search your rules for the ZAL process same as you did for ZAM.exe. See if you have another rule in there somewhere. Here's the rule I have for ZAM.exe:

If you find a rule, click on the green checked rule like in your pic below (Allow IP Out...) to see the actual rule that you currently have. Don't edit the ZAM.exe one or any ZAL ones you find since those already govern some element of the program on your local network somehow. Clicking on the rule is just a way for you to see how to view a rule for a process so that you can edit it if necessary in the future or whatever:

Just focus on creating a new rule for the ZAL process of the Allow IP In or Out type like the one in my pic. @Maxwell Sien's way sounds like it will work fine too. That way you can create a rule for all executables in the program folder all at once.

Glad you got it resolved. If you run into questions with Comodo, you can start a discussion here:

Comodo

Good threads in there to read too. You can also watch the Forum there (near the top right side "Watch Forum". @cruelsister does great Comodo videos in the video section. She is still undefeated and untied against malware using Comodo :)
