In Comodo is one screen that has me totally stumped. It's some sort of a potentially-unsafe file list. Help isn't helping me. If a AV update comes in or if I download a file, is such file first put onto this screen and I have to figure out whether and where to move it? How big is this list going to get?
If I sit and just watch the list grow, does it mean AV is or is not updating?
Actually most of those files are some Comodo updates with options to remove, add, move and so on.

I've trialed Comodo before and found it managable, with the exception of this one screen.

So how does it work in the daily grind?

Hi Tos226,
What to do is click on purge and this will delete the no longer viable files leaving just the valid files which can then be added to your safe files. This only deletes the files from Comodo and not from your PC. If you set both your Network Defence and Proactive Defence to Safe Mode you will no longer get these files building up and won't have to bother with them. The safe files list was a way in which Comodo was gathering information for their Anti Virus which I read in the Comodo Forums is now past the Beta stage and will be part of a big update of what Comodo calls the Comodo Internet Security Suite and is due for release by the end of the month. Here is a link to the Comodo Forum where you will find a lot of info on their products.

Also to add,when a file or program is accessed it will then be placed in the pending files list. This happened to me a while back and the list was into its thousands. I disabled the +defence option in comodo and replaced that aspect of security with an alternative.

Thanks to both of you. That clarifies a bit.
Yeah, I think I trialed with defence which caused the list to grow.
So long as these are internal lists, it's not a problem. I gather if I were to Move to a safe list, it won't ask again (assuming defence is running)
If I do use Comodo, I probably won't use that part anyway. I just would want a simple firewall plus some application protection, none of the suite stuff nor AV, as I've got good tools for HIPS and AV. Just exploring the alternatives :thumbsup:

It's not neccessary to disable Defence+ just change it from clean mode to safe mode and you will no longer see any My Pending files.

Another tip I have just learned is if you go into Firewall > Advanced > Network Security Policy and purge the files here Comodo will delete anything listed which is not on your PC anymore eg old deleted programs leaving only Valid Files. You should also do this with Defence+ > Advanced > Computer Security Policy. It just keeps your installation clean and tidy without Comodo being cluttered up with old and unused info.
