I would leave it disabled permanently or remove Hit Man Pro and install something else such as Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast.

Using multiple antivirus programs can cause issues related to resources between them, and I would even ditch Comodo as well as that is notorious for causing issues with Steam along with Norton, McAfee, and Kasperksy.

@erikloman current version of Cryptoguard (Hitman alert) is breaking Steam, when it tries to install any new game it false-triggers as an attack and forces Readonly on it's program Folder. Steam will not even start if its RO had to disable Cryptoguard Just to start steam and play any of my games.

:thumbup2: and good luck.
