I do not like when programs constantly send some data from my computer over Internet without my consent.
I installed the latest version of COMODO Firewall and I set all updates to "manual".
And dispite this I was constantly observing that cmdagent.exe was sending some data from my computer and was downloading something to my computer.
I tried to block this program from connecting to the Internet by creating a firewall rule.
But that did not help. Now the program connects to different IPs.
But it still transfers some data over the Internet.


Is it possible to block this?

Thank you.

cmdagent is of the firewall program itself.


I don't know why you are fussing so much over it.

I do not like this constant uploading data from my computer and downloading something, which I did not ask for. If I recall correctly, with a previous version of the firewall I was able to block this sort of traffic. I also wonder how this program overcomes the firewall.

You are wondering how the applications within the firewall itself ... overcome the firewall...and your attempts to block things from accessing the internet with the firewall?


You might find glasswire easier to use....click single icon to block, done

 (It's plain English identification of programs/services requiring the access might ease your mind on intent.....)


But I'd certainly not recommend disabling the firewall's access to send/receive data....

My experience with Comodo is that it creates performance problems.


The built-in Windows Firewall, along with a router NAT firewall, works well.
