    Mine is the first one:
    Comodo Internet Security Setup/configuration thread (Setting Only)

    enough for everybody, not for me :D it will be based on TVL/Whitelist; if you see what i mean...

    never tried elsewhere than paranoid.

    One thing people shouldn't trust is Comodo's TVL; 1st thing i delete when installing CIS.

    Was fun while it lasted, but Comodo inexplicably started crashing Chrome again.
    Spent some time on the good old Comodo forum trying to troubleshoot it. Folks there do try to help, it's not their fault the software is buggy.
    Back to NVT ERP. Hey, it works...

    I even went so far as to do that, but I soon realized that I really need Chrome for certain things.

    I ran the official uninstaller/registry cleaner tool for a couple AVs I had used (Kaspersky and Avira), and I think that might have fixed it. So far, so good.

    I'm afraid you're right.
    Every time I think I have the kinks worked out of Comodo, I am in for another bad surprise. Remind me not to punish myself again. I should know by now which softs work right, and which don't.

    Well, the pesky problem came back after a while, but I seem to have solved ALL my Comodo issues by replacing Norton Family with Safe Lagoon, which doesn't do this intrusive thing with Chrome that drives CFW crazy.

    Uninstalled: NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro (degrades system performance on Windows 10)
    Uninstalled: Comodo Firewall (embedded code protection conflicts with certain apps)
    Uninstalled: F-Secure Search in Chrome (too slow)
    Uninstalled: HitmanPro.Alert (drag on system)

    Reinstalled: Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 (close to default settings)
    Reinstalled: ReHIPS (mainly for the anti-exe. My productivity apps are not isolated)
    Installed: AppCheck free

    Only major tweak is that I put script interpreters, including cmd.exe, into High Restricted category of Kaspersky Application Control. All my apps still run.

    It's nothing I haven't kvetched about before: Norton Family (free standalone app) needs a Chrome extension in order to work properly, and that Chrome extension doesn't do its job when Comodo embedded code protection is enabled. In addition, it prevents Chrome from loading my user profile.

    I would love to try it in place of Emsi IS. What do you say?
    For the rest nothing to say. Every great software that you uninstall, you replace it with another excellent program!

    Kaspersky gives you a trial period, like most other software...
    Try it out and see if you like it.

    Last time I tried EMSI (probably about a year ago), I got a lot of unnecessary prompts from the BB, and I also heard from people that you can't put Chrome in appcontainer lockdown.
    Maybe those problems are gone now. There is no security soft that is only smiles and no frowns.

    Many thanks. I Emsi with Chrome and I've never had problems, but I will verify if Appcontainer is active. I do not remember.

    Emsisoft having problems with Chrome (w/ AppContainer enabled) is a known issue. But as far as I know, the devs haven't fixed it yet, though they know about the problem. :)
