Hi FDV, That difference in the settings simply automatically puts it into containment or blocks the bad application without showing you a pop-up. More of a set and forget rule. The same goes for the blocking firewall rule "Do not show popup alerts"I have a question. I recently downloaded Comodo Firewall and i'm using Cruelsisters config. I was watching some of their videos i noticed a video about a year before the the one here and i noticed a slight difference. In the older video, in the Containment Settings they put a checkmark for "Do not show privilege elevation alerts". In the set up here it's unchecked. I was just curious about that.
I'm new here and i'm a noob about this stuff. I just want a secure setup.
That's fine for the Firewall rule but easiest way is to add it as an Allowed Application in Firewall and HIPS if you have that enabled.I have one more question. What is the proper way to add my Antivirus to the Exclusions in Comodo. I think i did it right in Kaspersky though i'm not 100% sure. And i have no idea if i did it right in Comodo.
Thank you. That helps. I do not have HIPS enabled so i'm good there. I'll add the folder in File Rating.Hi FDV, That difference in the settings simply automatically puts it into containment or blocks the bad application without showing you a pop-up.

You can also add the folder for KAV as Trusted in File List under File Rating

I'd have KAV installed first as well but not neccessary. If something isn't working with KAV, check the Comodo Logs.
Adding it in file rating is the 1 step next step is auto containment example check image:
Plz check image carefully because you must add trusted at the end of all entries.
Next thing is in Miscellaneous they have Do Not Automatically Clean Up Suspicious Certificates, Plz don't place a tick in that, say you install Avast and it try to install a certificate, comodo will ask if to allow it say yes because you trust Avast, but next month you uninstall Avast and install Kaspersky, comodo ask the same question for Kaspersky and you allow it, unknowingly you will have two certificates excluded from comodo scans under ( Don't detect shellcode injections in these applications ) you will have to go in there and remove the one not in use from the exclusion box. Many people aren't aware of such happenings.
